How to delete a Discord account?

You can delete your account if you want to take a permanent break from Discord. The process takes time, and you have 14 days to rethink the decision.

After that period, Discord will permanently delete your account and data, and you wouldn’t be able to regain your data.

Although most people use Discord on a computer, when I played Call of Duty Mobile, I saw many people are mobile gamers and only use Discord on smartphones. 

If you only use the Discord app on your smartphone, can you delete your account from the app?

The answer is Yes, and here’s how:

  1. Open the Discord app on your smartphone. If you are inside a channel or DM, press backspace, and you can see a footer bar.
  2. Tap on your Discord avatar at the right corner o the footer; it will open the User Settings page.
  3. Unlike desktop apps, it won’t take you to the My Account page directly. So, tap on Account.
  4. Scroll down and tap on Delete Account. A pop-up will ask for your password; enter your password and click on Delete Account
