What you need to know about Midjourney?
Mid-journey is a beta version that is being widely tested on the internet. To access the AI, you must register on the official Midjourney website and receive an invitation to use the beta version. The AI operates on the Discord platform, so you will need to create an account with Discord before using Midjourney.
You can use the Discord Midjourney server to communicate with other users, find inspiration, get help, or access pre-made artwork through the bot. The bot is also responsible for setting up your personal gallery. Submit text prompts to the bot and in return, receive a set of artworks.
You can then choose the image you prefer and receive it in high resolution and quality. You can save the image to your device or share it with colleagues and friends.
How to Use Midjourney?
To use the Midjourney Beta, you will need a Discord account. You can create a text prompt for the Midjourney bot through your Discord account. You can sign up for a free Discord account on their website. Alternatively, you can download the Discord app for Windows, Mac, Linux, Android, or iPhone.

What are the drawbacks or potential threats?
The only problem is the bot and its availability. Since it is one big server, your queries will be visible to other users of the bot. Here, the moment of privacy and identity of the idea is lost. You can solve this problem by buying a private subscription to the bot.
