If you can’t recall your account password, use the email address or phone number associated with your account to reset the password. Here’s how to do that on desktop and mobile.
Reset Password on Desktop
To reset your Discord password on desktop, first, launch the Discord app on your computer. Feel free to use Discord for the web if you want.
On the login screen in Discord, click the “Email or Phone Number” field and type your email address or phone number linked to your account. Then click the “Forgot Your Password” option.
For the demonstration, we’ll enter our email address.
Discord will quickly open an “Instructions Sent” prompt. Here, it tells you the steps to reset your password have been sent to your email address. Close this box by clicking “Okay.”
Open your email inbox and look for the email from Discord. In the email, to reset your password, click the “Reset Password” link.
The link will take you to Discord’s site where you can reset your password. On the site, click the “New Password” field and type the new password to use for your account. Then click “Change Password.”
Your account password is now reset, and use this password to sign in to your account on all your devices. Enjoy!

We’ll enter our email address.
Within a moment, you will see a notification in the Discord app that the password reset instructions have been sent to your email address.
