In general, BetterDiscord is considered safe, offering few risks, especially when it comes to using the themes provided by the application. However, in the case of plugins, it is important to be more careful, as they work like any other program that has direct access to your Discord account and file system.
The recommendation is download themes and plugins only from BetterDiscord official websitebecause there is greater assurance that they are not contaminated with any malicious code and that they follow the community guidelines.
That is, it is against Discord policies and your account may be banned because of it. However, BetterDiscord claims that it “runs entirely on the client side”, going unnoticed during Discord checks.
