When you register in Discord, you are asked to set your birthday. However, if you want to change it later on, you can’t do it within the platform.
But there is a workaround to this, and here you’ll find a step-by-step guide on how to change age on Discord.
Can You Change Your Age on Discord?
Most countries allow users above 13 years to register in Discord and use the platform. However, certain content and servers are only for 18+ people. So, if you accidentally provided the birthday date of someone who is under 18, you won’t be able to access age-restricted servers and content.
Additionally, if you want to change your age on Discord, you can’t do it from the platform itself. This means you can’t go to a place like user settings to change your age. Instead, you have to submit information (which includes your ID) to Discord’s team for them to change your birthday date manually.
There is also another way to access age-restricted servers and content without an ID. We’re going to explore both ways in the following step-by-step tutorials.
How to Change Age on Discord
As we covered above, Discord hasn’t a way to directly change your birthday and age. Instead, you have to contact Discord’s team for them to change your age manually.
1. Requirements to Change Age on Discord
Before starting, you need to take a picture of yourself holding your ID and a piece of paper with your Discord username on it. This means you need to take one single picture holding the following items in your hand:
- Your ID (make sure it’s clearly legible).
- A piece of paper with your Discord username, including the last 4 numbers (for example,
2. Send a Request to Change Age on Discord
The following step involves sending your photo to Discord’s Trust & Safety team by completing a request. To do this, head on to Discord’s requests page and complete the form with the required information.
Here, make sure you choose the ‘Trust & Safety‘ category. In ‘How can we help?’ choose the ‘Appeals, age update, other questions‘ option from the drop-down list. A new field will appear immediately below. Choose the option ‘Update my age information‘.
Keep in mind that you need to send this request with the same email you used to create your Discord account. If you registered with your phone number, provide it in the specific field.
Then, choose a new date of birth and click on the ‘Please confirm that you have attached the required materials‘ checkbox. The last step is to upload the photo of yourself with your ID and Discord username you’ve made in step 1, and click on ‘Submit‘.
Now, you only need to wait until Discord’s Trust & Safety team confirms your request. If it gets accepted, you’ll receive a confirmation email and your age will be updated on Discord.
How to Change Age on Discord Without an ID
If you want to change your age and it doesn’t match your ID’s birth date, you’ll need to create a brand new Discord account.
For this, you’ll need a secondary email and a different username. Simply head on to Discord’s registration page, complete the required information (including the desired birthday date), and create a new account.
And that’s it! Since Discord doesn’t demand age verification when you first register to the platform, you’ll be able to access all age-restricted content and servers by creating a new account.
