In that case, you can use the Forgot Password options on the login page. Discord will send instructions to your email tied to your account. Within a few clicks, you will be able to set a new password and finally have access to your Discord account again.
However, this solution is only applicable if you can still open your email ID. But what if you also lost access to your email? Say, you have forgotten the password of that email or it might have been years since you last opened it? Is there still a way to get your Discord account back without having to start all over again by creating a new account?
How to Recover Your Discord Account without Email
Truth be told, in situations like this, the only way to recover your account is to contact Discord support directly.
As of the moment, there is yet no other way you can get your account back on the app itself. You need to reach out to Discord’s support team to be able to do that.
Note: You can do this both on your phone and desktop. The process is almost the same anyway. If you opt to send a ticket using your mobile device, you can still follow the guide below which is mainly written for desktop users.
Follow the step-by-step instructions below on how you can ask the Discord support team to help recover your account.
Visit the Discord Support website to contact them.
Alternatively, you can also search Discord on the Google search bar and find the Support option on the homepage. You will then be redirected to the Discord support page.
On the home page of Discord Help Center, click Submit a Request.
Mobile users can find this option by clicking the three lines icon on the top right corner of the page, beside the Sign In button. A drop-down menu will appear, and then select Submit a Request.
Type in all the necessary details, such as your email address.
For this one, note that the email address you should put here should not be the one that you used for your Discord account, especially if you don’t have access to that one any longer. Use an existing email account that you have full access to. Discord will use it to contact you to help reset your email and password.
Complete the rest of the form. Choose Forgot Email/Password when asked what type of question you want Discord to address.
Then, type in the subject and details of the mail. Here’s an example:
You can include relevant screenshots or other files that can help prove you’re the owner of that account.
And you’re done! Wait for Discord support to get back at you for a couple of days or so. In just a matter of days, you will be able to recover your account.
Once you’ve succeeded in logging in, immediately change your email in the User Settings. Take note of your new email and password to make logging in easier next time.
