Q1. My security app says that the downloaded file contains a virus, what should I do?
Ans: Provided that you download the app straight from the official site of Bluecord, the app should be completely safe. While modding the app, a re-signing of the original app is required which causes a false-positive with the package. This inconsistency is what gets picked up and gets labelled as a virus or a malicious software.
Q2. The installation process keeps saying “App not Installed” why ?
Ans: The .apk file requires about 110MB and an additional 400 MB to install and run, make sure you have enough storage available before you run the installation. Also users can try disabling “Play Protect” temporarily to fix the issue.
Q3. Is Bluecord safe to use?
Ans: Yes, Bluecord is absolutely safe to use. Make sure to download only from the official website and to not use the app for any malicious reasons. Bluecord runs like any other modded app and as long as users do not use it for botting or abusively uses API calls, then all should be safe.

It provides users with more flexibility and customizability options that users crave for on Discord. We hope that this guide has helped you in getting you the required information and helps you enhance your Discord experience.
