Identifying your account is the most crucial step when getting started on Discord. But not everyone realizes there is more than one way to identify a user on Discord. Every account has two methods for identification: the Discord tag system and your Discord ID. A Discord ID differs from your Discord tag; it contains a unique 18-digit code string, considerably much longer than the latter. Discord IDs publicly identify individual users, messages, Discord servers, and channels. There are situations where having the Discord ID on hand is much more beneficial than referring to the Discord tag. Most users know how to find their own tags but lack the knowledge to find their Discord ID. That’s why we’ve put together a few simple steps that teach users how to copy and paste a Discord ID from their trusty Android phone and desktop.
