We will be covering the steps for all the devices in the most straightforward method. However, you need to know a few things before you delete your Discord account.

What to Know Before Deleting Your Discord Account

When you delete your Discord account, all the associated account data will also get permanently deleted with an option to retrieve it within 14 days. However, after the 14-day grace period, you won’t be able to revive your Discord account.

In addition to that, you will have to either delete or transfer ownership of the servers you own to someone else. You will only be able to delete the Discord account if you have sorted out the servers you own. Once done, you can move on to the next section.

Quick Tip: If you can reactivate and disable it again, you will have another 2 years to think about coming back to Discord.

How to Recover a Disabled Discord Account
