What if I can’t find the icon on the “Connections” page on Discord?

This is more common than you think. Many users can’t connect their accounts to Discord for three reasons:

– Either their Discord or accounts are using different email addresses
– They can’t find the icon on the “Connections” page on Discord
– They’ve changed their usernames recently

There was even an official thread on Twitter where Discord officially stated that there was a problem syncing to Discord and that they were working on it.

This took place between 2017 and 2018, and now, users can connect to their accounts correctly.

However, if you can’t do that, you should restart Discord, clear the cache (on mobile), or reinstall it.

Do the same for, to be sure. Afterward, try to sync your and Discord accounts together.

How can you de-sync your account from Discord?

If you want to de-synch your account from Discord after syncing them, you should go to User Settings – Connections on Discord.

There, you’ll find the “” entry, with your username next to it.

If you look carefully, you’ll see an X icon in the top-right corner of the “” panel. Click on it to de-sync your account from Discord.

You’ll be asked to confirm this by clicking on “Disconnect” or “Cancel.”

Doing this may also remove you from all the servers you’ve joined with the account on Discord.

Please think carefully before you do anything because it may have serious repercussions on your Discord server and profile.

Fortunately, you can synch the account back to Discord at any time. But this won’t make you rejoin all those servers, though.
