How to find your Discord ID

Learn on how to find Discord IDs - User ID/Server ID/Channel ID and Message ID - by enabling the Developer Mode on Discord on web and mobile

Discord is a chat application(text, audio and video) used by gamers globally. It is not just a simple plain chat message application, and it offers several features that are essential for gaming - like custom communities called servers, dedicated channels, and personalisation options for your community.

Discord utilizes Twitter's snowflake format for uniquely identifiable descriptors (IDs). These IDs are guaranteed to be unique across all of Discord, except in some unique scenarios in which child objects share their parent's ID

One of Discord’s unique features is that it allows multiple users to have the same username for example - vadootv, differentiated by a 4-digit numerical code attached to the end of each username. For example, users with a similar username - like Vadootv - can be differentiated by a unique signifier - such as Vadootv#0014 and Vadootv#0641.

Discord creates logs of your activities for future reference and processing. Similarly, Discord also has unique IDs for messages, channels, and servers.
