After creating an account, users of Discord have the option to delete it if they ever feel the need to take a break or if they are required to do so for some account. Here are the steps:
Discord has quickly become one of the most widely used communication platforms over the course of the past few years. At first, the platform was developed for players of multiplayer online games who wanted to remain connected while using a digital connection that had a low latency so that they could better plan their next move.
It is now used by a variety of fandoms as well as some working professionals all over the world. Users of the platform have access to a variety of features, such as two-factor authentication, the capability to change their profile picture, and more.
Users of Discord have the ability to disable and delete their accounts from the platform, similar to other online services. Users might sign up for Discord, but they might find that they don’t need an account after some time has passed.
Users have the time to change their account via the settings options, and they can choose to either disable their account temporarily or delete it permanently, depending on their preference.
The steps necessary to disable Discord account are the same regardless of whether you access the application through a mobile device or a desktop computer.
The section labelled “User Settings” can be found in the bottom-left corner of the desktop version, and in the bottom-right corner of the mobile version. All the user needs to do is open either of these users. Users are required to select “My Account” from the available menu options. Users need to scroll all the way down to the bottom of the page and select the option that reads “Disable Account” under the heading “Account Removal.”
When this is done, the user accounts of other people will be disabled, or in other words, put on hold. Users are given the option to reactivate their account at any time by simply logging back into it.
Delete A Discord Account To Remove It Permanently
To permanently delete a Discord account, go to the “User Settings” section and click or tap on the “Delete Account” option, which is next to the “Disable Account” option.
One clear difference between disabling and deleting a Discord account is that disabled accounts can be restored, but deleted accounts can’t be restored after a certain amount of time. If all a user wants to do is take a break from the platform, disabling the Discord account will be the right choice instead of deleting the account.
If users are tired of texting on the platform, they could use Discord’s Markdown to send formatted messages.
On the official support page for Discord, however, it says that these users will still get friend requests from other people while their account is disabled, which they can answer when they reactivate their account back on. Users can easily stop someone from sending them annoying messages by muting them.
Users can temporarily disable their account, but if they don’t use a disabled account for two years, it will be deleted on its own. Also, Discord accounts that have been deleted stay in a “pending deletion” status for two weeks.
