If you are wondering how to find your Discord ID, then we have you covered right here.

Now, every Discord user has two IDs – one is your username, which other users can see and find you by. The other ID is a unique numerical code that is used to keep logs in a server (more convenient than a username), identify users, and more. Plus, users can change their public username, but this Discord ID cannot be changed, so it is a more foolproof way to look for your friend’s profiles.

In addition to this, you can also copy user IDs of other users, which might come in handy while reporting someone on Discord. In this guide, we will show you how to find your 18-digit Discord ID using your PC as well as your mobile.

Quick Answer

Open Discord > User Settings > Enable Developer Mode > Go to profile > click on three dots beside your picture > copy the code
