How to Fix the Well, This Is Awkward Discord Issue

There are a few things we can do to fix this Discord’s “This is Awkward” error:

Update Discord

The first thing you might want to do is to check if your Discord is up to date. Updates often come with bug fixes, but there’s more to it. Sometimes, due to compatibility issues, developers will prevent old versions of an app from interacting with new ones. An update should fix the issue when that’s the case.

Disable Your Antivirus

Sometimes, your antivirus software may interfere with other applications, correctly or incorrectly assuming that they are problematic. Temporarily disabling your antivirus might fix the issue in such cases.

Note: The steps to disable antivirus software vary depending on the software you’re using.

Clear Discord’s Cache Data

Applications store temporary data over time and we call it “cache.” This temporary data can become corrupted for a number of reasons, preventing the app from working as intended. Here’s how to delete Discord’s Cache:
