When you create a Discord account, you’re assigned a token. Your Discord token is separate from your username, tag, and password, and allows whoever has it to log into your account. Knowing what it is will allow you to better protect yourself and safeguard your account. Here’s how to get your Discord token.

QUICK ANSWER 

To obtain your Discord token, log in on the Discord website via your desktop browser, such as Google Chrome. Click the three dots, choose More tools, then Developer tools. Go to the Application tab, click the down arrow next to Local storage in the Storage section, find and click on the Discord URL. In the Filter field, type token, and click Toggle device toolbar. Your Discord token will appear; copy and paste it using (CTRL+C, CTRL+V) or note it down.

What is a Discord token?

Your Discord token is an encryption of your Discord username and password that’s generated when you create your account. Comprised of a series of numbers and letters, your token is an authorization code for accessing Discord’s servers. It “authenticates” every action that you take, and can also be used to log into your account.

If someone else knows your token, they can hack into your account and will have full access to all of your Discord account information.

How to get your Discord token

  • Go to the Discord website using your desktop browser and log into your account. Here, we’re using Google Chrome
  • Click on the three dots located in the upper right corner of your Google Chrome.
  • From the dropdown menu, choose More tools, and then select Developer tools.

FAQs

It’s never, ever safe to give your Discord token to anyone. This is a unique identifier for your account, and it bypasses two-factor authentication (2FA) and could be used to hijack your account. If someone obtains your Discord token, they can send messages, join servers, and access any information or settings available to you.
