While playing video games on a desktop/PC, players often need a solution for one single problem: how to communicate with the player they are playing with.
Discord is an app that aims to solve that problem. Discord is a voice, video, and text chat application now used by millions of people.
Gamers mainly use the app as it allows them to talk to their friends while playing their favorite games. However, even if you’re not a gamer, you can still use the app to communicate with friends or family.
While creating a new account on Discord, sometimes users may accidentally put the wrong birth date. Later, they may wish to correct their mistake but need help finding an option. Actually, there’s no option to change your age on Discord.
Can You Change your Age on Discord?
Once you set your age during the account creation process, you can’t change it back later for security reasons. So, is it possible to change age on Discord without creating a new account? The short answer to this question is ‘YES,’ but it’s not how you think.
To change age on Discord, you first need to email the Discord support them. They may ask you to verify your identity before updating your age on Discord. Then, follow our shared steps to change your age on Discord.
How to Change Your Age on Discord?
You can use the Discord web version, desktop client, or mobile apps to change your age. First, contact the Discord Support team and ask them to change your age. However, this would require providing your Photo ID to the support team.
Important: Before following the steps, you need to capture a picture of yourself holding your Photo ID (Driving License, Pancard, or any other card used for identity verification) and a piece of paper with your Discord username written on it. You can use your mobile phone to capture the picture; make sure the Photo ID and your face are clearly visible.
