How to Find your User ID on Discord

Users, channels, messages, and even Discord servers all have a unique ID number associated with them. These IDs are used, primarily by developers, to reference individual items in a Discord server, or the server itself.

There are other cases though where a non-developer might need to find one of these ID numbers. Thankfully, finding IDs, like User ID, is actually pretty easy in Discord. You just have to make sure you enable Developer mode first!

In this article, we’ll show you how to find user, message, and server IDs in Discord on both desktop and mobile.
