In continuation, we will present those settings, and you can choose the settings that suit your needs.

Allow direct messages from server members
This function allows or restricts the ability of a server member (of which you are part of - server) to directly message you. This functionality doesn't apply retroactively, meaning if you turn it on and off it will apply only for future server joins.
If you want to change this setting for a server you are currently part of, you will need to go to Server Settings → Privacy Settings → Direct Messages On / Off.
Enable message requests from server members you might not know
This setting allows or restricts a server member possibility of sending you a message requests. The setting in your account will apply only to new server joins.
If you want to change this setting in servers that you are already a part of, you will need to go to Server Settings → Privacy Settings → Message Request On / Off.
