How do I confirm my email on Discord?

Answered by Phillip Nicastro

Confirming your email on Discord is an important step to ensure the security of your account and access to all the features Discord has to offer. To confirm your email, you can follow these steps:

1. Open Discord: Launch the Discord application or visit the Discord website and log in to your account using your username and password.

2. Go to User Settings: Once you are logged in, click on the gear icon located at the bottom left corner of the Discord window. This will open the User Settings page.

3. Navigate to the My Account tab: In the User Settings page, you will see several tabs on the left side. Click on the “My Account” tab, which is usually the first one.

4. Look for the verification status: In the My Account tab, you will find a yellow box at the top. If your email is not yet verified, you will see the words “Resend Verification Email” bolded in that box.

5. Resend the verification email: To confirm your email, simply click on the “Resend Verification Email” link in the yellow box. This will trigger Discord to send you another email to the address you provided during the registration process.

6. Check your email inbox: Open your email account that you used to sign up for Discord and look for a new email from Discord. It may take a few moments for the email to arrive, so be patient.

7. Open the verification email: Once you find the email from Discord, open it and you should see a message asking you to verify your email address. This email will contain a verification link or a verification code.

8. Click the verification link or enter the verification code: If you received a verification link, simply click on it, and it will redirect you to a webpage confirming that your email has been successfully verified. If you received a verification code, go back to your Discord application or website and enter the code in the appropriate field.

9. Email confirmed: After clicking the verification link or entering the verification code, your email should be successfully confirmed. You may see a confirmation message on the webpage or within the Discord application.

By confirming your email on Discord, you not only secure your account but also gain access to additional features like joining certain servers, participating in certain events, and receiving important communication from Discord.

If you encounter any issues during the email confirmation process, make sure to double-check your email address for any typos and also check your spam or junk folder in case the verification email landed there.

Personal experience:
I remember when I first signed up for Discord, I had to go through the email confirmation process as well. Initially, I overlooked the verification email in my inbox, and it took me a while to realize that I needed to confirm my email to access some features. Once I found the email, I clicked on the verification link, and my email was successfully confirmed. It was a straightforward process, and I was relieved to have everything set up properly.
