Every message, server, and user have an individual ID. This ID is a multi-digit number. But, don’t confuse ID with personal information. Discord ID is not personal information. It is just a digit that discord uses to recognize users, channels, and servers.

To use Discord, you don’t need to know every unique ID number. But, in some cases where you need the number to copy it, you can do it. That’s why we made this guide for you. Discord has a feature you can enable to copy IDs. To do it, just follow these simple steps below. Here is what you need to do.

Step 1

 Go to the “Settings” menu on the bottom left corner. It is next to your microphone and headphones button. Press on it to open the menu. 

Step 2

 This is the “User Settings” menu. Here you can see all the features Discord has to offer. To copy ID, you have to first scroll down to this menu and select “Appearance”. 

Step 3

 Now, in the “Advanced” section, toggle the first option “Developer Mode”. This is one of the most useful features in Discord especially if you want to copy ID and use Bots. So, go ahead and turn this option on to start seeing IDs. 

Step 4

 Once you’ve toggled “Developer Mode” you are ready to go. Right-click on your channel’s name and select “Copy ID”. You can use the same tactic to copy users and servers IDs. 

Step 5

This is how an ID looks like. It is just numbers. To tag your friend or channel, paste the ID in the chat and type in “< @ >” at the beginning and at the end of the numbers. Add the at sign “@” at the start. See the example below. That is how you should type them in. 

Step 6

When you send this ID in chat, Discord will automatically tag that person or channel. Here is how a tagged user looks like.
