How To Switch Accounts On Discord

Are you tired of signing out and logging in to use another Discord account? Do you want to switch between multiple accounts smoothly on the desktop app? If that’s a yes, you can use the account switcher feature on Discord. Follow our guide below, and we’ll show you how to do so.


In Discord, there’s no rule that each user must have only one account on the app. You can create multiple accounts for different purposes as long as you have available email addresses that you can use.

However, switching between multiple accounts can be time-consuming, especially if you have to log out and use a different sign-in credential for another account. Thankfully, Discord is rolling out the account switcher feature on their web and desktop app.

By using the account switcher, you can add up to five accounts on the web or desktop app so that you can access them much faster. Here’s our guide about switching to another account on Discord.

How to switch to another account on Discord

If you’re using multiple accounts on Discord, logging out and signing in to another account can be quite tiring. With the help of the account switcher option, you can sign in and switch between multiple accounts with a few clicks.

You can add accounts and switch through them seamlessly on the Discord desktop and web app. Check our tutorial below, and we’ll guide you on how to do it from your computer.

  1. Open the Discord desktop or web app on your computer and sign in to your account.
  2. Click your profile icon located at the bottom left side of the app.
  3. Once the menu appears, select the “Switch Accounts” option.

  4. Click the “Add account” option on the pop-up window that appears on your screen.

  5. Enter your email address and password, and click Continue.

That’s how you add a new account to your Discord desktop app. If you ever need to switch to another account, tap your profile picture, select “Switch Accounts,” and click the account that you want to use.

Always remember that other users won’t be able to see the other accounts that you’re using on Discord. There’s no need to worry about other people discovering your second or even third account.

There might be some preference options that may reset once you switch accounts. However, switching won’t affect your Privacy & Safety options for all your accounts.

To wrap it all up

Now that you know how to use the account switcher on the Discord web and desktop app, you can switch between your accounts smoothly without having the need to log out. Always remember that you can only add up to five accounts when using the switcher feature.
