3 Ways to Switch Between Multiple Discord Accounts

Lots of people have multiple Discord accounts, usually for privacy reasons but also productivity ones where one account is for work and the other for personal use.

This raises the question: is it possible to use multiple Discord accounts and switch between them?

Both iOS and Android Discord apps don’t allow switching between multiple Discord accounts. However, you can switch between accounts on mobile & desktop browser versions of Discord, or by using a free Android or iOS app to clone the Discord app and log into multiple accounts at once.

Why Discord lets you switch between accounts on browsers versions but not the apps themselves isn’t yet clear.

Most likely they are currently testing this feature and will release it some time in the future.

Until then however you will have to use some workarounds to use multiple Discord accounts at the same time.

Use Discord mobile browser for the alt account

Since you can’t use multiple accounts on the iOS and Android version of Discord, the simplest alternative is log into the Discord app with your main account, while logging into the Discord mobile browser version for your secondary account.

To do so, open your mobile browser (Safari, Chrome, Firefox, Samsung Browser etc.) and go to https://discord.com/login .

NOTE: It’s possible Discord mobile browser version might open up the app version. In this case, try opening https://discord.com/login in incognito mode.

From there, log in to your secondary account.

While you’re there, you’ll notice the mobile browser version of Discord allows you to switch between accounts.

It’s unfortunate the browser version of Discord has more features than the app version, but that’s just the way things are for now.

Now that you’ve logged in, you can switch between your main account on the Discord app and the secondary account on the Discord mobile browser.

It’s not as ideal or as user friendly as having it all in one place, but it does its job well enough for most situations.

If you want a more powerful and feature rich alternative, check out the solution below.

Use cloned / parallel apps on iOS and Android

A super neat feature that both iOS and Android phone support is app cloning, sometimes called parallel apps.

As the name implies, this feature allows you to run two parallel copies of the same app.

Using Discord as an example, you can run Copy 1 which logs you into your main account, while Copy 2 lets you log into your secondary account.

However, cloning apps allow you to be logged in to multiple accounts for every app, not just Discord!

For both iOS and Android, you will need to download a separate app to perform app cloning.

However, some Android phone makers such as Samsung, OnePlus or Xiaomi support this feature natively.

Fortunately, these apps are mostly free and pretty easy to use and require no jailbreaking on iOS or rooting your phone on Android.

Here is a list for iOS cloning / parallel apps:

And now the same list for Android cloning / parallel apps:

While each of these apps has a different UI, the workflow is similar for all of them:

  • Open the cloning/parallel app.
  • Add the app you want to clone (in this case Discord).
  • From within the cloning app, open the Discord app.
  • Log in to your secondary account on the cloned Discord app.
  • To switch to your main Discord account, switch between the cloning app and the actual Discord app on your device.

That’s pretty much how it works. Do note that some cloning apps are better than others.

Some are more stable, others have a better UI, some have ads while some don’t, some allow 2-3 clone apps on the free version while others allow just one.

It can take a while to find the right cloning app for you, so it’s best to do this when you have 20-30 minutes available.

How to use multiple Discord accounts on desktop browsers

To switch between Discord accounts on Desktop, simply do the following:

  1. Click on your profile name in the bottom left corner.
  2. Click “Switch Accounts”.
  3. Choose the account you want to switch to.

Fortunately, switching between Discord accounts on desktop browsers is straightforward and doesn’t require any complex steps or apps.

Use server profiles for extra anonymity

There are many reasons to use multiple Discord accounts, but if you’re concerned mostly about privacy then another neat feature worth checking out is Discord’s personalized server profiles.

As the name implies, this feature allows you to customize your nickname for a particular server.

To activate server profiles, tap on Profile -> Profiles -> Server Profiles.

The limitations of this feature is that users who click on your profile can still see your real Discord profile and username.

Do note that this is more of a “paid” feature, since it requires either you or the server to have Discord premium.

In any case, custom server profiles are useful if you want some sort of separation between the profiles you have on different servers.
