How to Change Your Discord Password in 2021

calendar1 Last Updated

It’s always unfortunate when we forget our passwords, but luckily Discord, like many other platforms, gives us the ability to reset them through various devices. Whether you have forgotten your password or need to change it due to a security breach, this post will serve as a step-by-step guide on how to reset your Discord password:

How to Reset a Discord Password on Desktop

To make your password more secure, click on the setting icon next to your name, then the “Change Password” button under “Password and Authentication.”

If you forgot your Discord password, here are the steps you should take:

  1. Step 1:

    Go to https://discord.com/login and click on “Forgot your Password?”

  2. Step 2:

    Click the link, and you’ll receive an email with the steps on how to reset your password.

  3. Step 3:

    Click the “Reset Password” button located in the email you’ve received.

  4. Step 4:

    The link will direct you back to discord’s login screen, where you can create a new password.

    All done!

How to Change a Discord Password on Mobile (iOS and Android)

If you’re using the Discord app on either an iOS or Android phone, both will have the same link to change your discord password. The process is very similar to changing your password on desktop. Just complete the following steps:

  1. Step 1:

    When logging on the Discord app, click on “Forgot your Password?”

  2. Step 2:

    You’ll receive an email with the steps on how to reset your password.

  3. Step 3:

    Click the “Reset Password” button located in the email you’ve received.

  4. Step 4:

    The link will direct you back to discord’s login screen, where you can create a new password.

    All done!

Reasons to Change a Discord Password

It’s important to change your passwords on all your social media accounts once in a while. Here are some reasons to change your Discord password:

  1. Your Account Has Been Hacked

    If you receive signs that your account has been compromised (such as an email about someone logging into your discord account from a location you’re unfamiliar with, etc), it’s time to change your password immediately.

  2. Your Password Has Been Compromised

    If any other accounts you’re using on different platforms have been hacked into, you should immediately reset your password (on that note, don’t use the same password for everything!).

  3. You’ve Forgotten Your Password

    If you’ve forgotten your Discord password, you will need to change it. If you frequently forget passwords, consider trying a password protector app that keeps your passwords safe while allowing you to easily use them when operating online.

That’s it! We hope this guide will help you out in case you wish to reset your Discord password.
