How to Change Your Email Address on Discord?

Changing your Discord email address is nothing too complicated. But it does require some technical know-how of the app settings.

Here’s how to change your email on Discord:

  1. Open Discord and go to Settings
  2. Tap on Email
  3. Change your Email address
  4. Confirm your password
  5. Tap on “Verify”

Still looks like you can’t handle it or that you might stumble on technicalities? Not a problem. See my guide below for additional information on changing your email address on Discord!

Begin by opening the Discord app and going to your profile settings (tap your profile picture in the bottom-right corner).

Once you’re in the settings, find the “My Account” option (under the “Set Status” option) and select it. Just in case, check the picture above to find the option easier.

2. Tap on “Email

On the “Account Information” page, you should find the “Email” field under the “Username” field. Check the screenshot above to see what I mean.

Once you tap on the email address, you’ll be redirected to a new page (picture above) where you can enter the new email address.

Do that and then tap on the oddly-looking blue button in the bottom-right corner.

4. Confirm your password

Next, Discord will ask you to enter your account password (as a precautionary measure). Do that and then tap once again on the oddly-looking blue button in the bottom-right corner.

5. Tap on “Verify

Now that you’ve confirmed your password, you’ll need to verify the new email address. Discord has just sent you an email notification there, so open your email provider and find it!

This is the notification you receive from Discord, telling you to go to your new email address and do something there.

Once you open your email provider, find the email that was sent by Discord. It should be new and at the top of your inbox, so you can’t go wrong.

Open it and you should see a blue “Verify Email” button inside. Give it a tap!

7. Tap on “Continue to Discord”

Now that Discord has verified the new email address, you’re done. Either tap on “Continue to Discord” or close this window and open Discord manually.

Either way, that’s all there is to it. Confused about anything? Ask in the comments section below and I’ll try to help you as best I can!


What do I do if I forget my Discord email?

You’d need to contact Discord support if you forgot the email address used to create the Discord account.

There’s no way to access your account without your email.

You can go here to submit a request on Discord.

Or you can search “Discord submit request” on Google, and you’ll find what you’re looking for.

Discord usually replies in a few hours, a few days at best.

Next time, remember your email address, and you won’t have to go through this again.

Does Discord delete inactive accounts?

It won’t get deleted even if you don’t access your Discord account.

Only if someone reports you for spam will Discord delete the account.

But inactivity doesn’t lead to account deletion.

However, if you’re inactive on a Discord server, the server’s owner can kick you out.

Not even inactive servers can be deleted by Discord. The owner would have to do it manually.

If the server owner’s account gets deleted, the server will still be up.

My name is Alex and I have a knack for social media in all its shapes and forms. I’ve dealt with such things for quite some time and I noticed that many people have issues with social media and technicalities.

Unforeseen errors, bugs, and other problems make their use of social media problematic. These things will be discussed amply in the guides on Whizcase.

I'll present the facts as they are, and offer quick and easy solutions for them.
