How to Verify Your Personal Account on Discord
You have the option of verifying your account via phone verification code or verification email. Email verification is necessary, while Discord phone verification is only optional.
To begin the Discord servers verification process, you must meet the following requirements:
- You should be an official representative of a person of public interest, business, or brand in addition to being the server owner.
- You should use a formal email address linked to your brand or registered business to demonstrate your official status.
- If you represent a person of public interest and your server related to that person, Discord will use other social media sites or accounts to verify your identity.
- You should also have an associated email address or link to your account.
These are the general requirements for server verification whether phone verification or email verification. Now you can request to verify the email address to your Discord account.
To verify your email, here’s a step by step guide:
Open the Discord app and click login to your account.

Frequently Asked Questions
Do You Have to Verify Your Discord Account?
Email or phone verification is not mandatory for all Discord users. If you don’t want to verify your account, you can still use it without verification. However, your account will not have the full range of available features with a verified account.
However, if you’re an Admin on a Discord server and set the security level to “high,” members may be unable to log in without verification.
Spammers may target your Discord account when you have a high-security or verification level. This is when verification via email becomes necessary to prevent spammers from taking control of your server when you are offline. So email account verification or phone verification is a way to keep your account secure and protected from unauthorized access.
Can Your Verify Your Discord Account on Your Phone?
Yes, and there are two ways for phone authentication in your phone on Discord:
- Phone Verification Level
- Occasional phone authentication
Highest Phone Verification Level
This is for verified servers that have been set for high-security levels especially if you create communities. When enabled, all members will be required to verify your phone number or account before joining the server.
This additional security helps keep your official server safe from unauthorized access.
To enable this level, admins must go to the “Server Settings” and then select “Phone Verification.”
From there, they will be able to choose between “Admin” and “All Members.”
You may receive a prompt on your mobile device asking to provide a security code via SMS for Discord. Enter the code in Discord to verify your phone number and verified Discord account.
Occasional Phone Authentication
It is the default setting for Discord. Whenever someone attempts to log in on Discord without using a verified email address, Discord will send an SMS message with a special code to the mobile device.
Enter the code in Discord, and you will log in.
