What Are Discord Tags And How To Find Them?

Discord tags are special IDs given to every user on Discord.  These tags are crucial for telling users apart and making communication clear in Discord communities. Knowing about Discord tagging is important for chatting with friends, joining servers and handling your profile. In this blog post, we’ll explore what Discord tags are, why they matter, and how you can find yours easily.

What is a Discord Tag?

A Discord tag is a unique identifier for every user on Discord, combining a username and a four-digit number. When you create a Discord account, you choose a username. To ensure uniqueness, Discord adds a “#” followed by four random digits, creating a tag. 

Here’s why Discord tags are used:

  • Allow Duplicate Usernames: Without discriminators, many users could have the same name. The discriminator ensures each username and discriminator combination is unique.
  • Case Sensitivity: Discord usernames are case-sensitive. This means “CoolName#1234” is different from “coolname#1234”.

How Do I Find My Discord Tag?

  • Open the Discord app on your device or go to the Discord website.
  • Log in to your Discord account using your credentials.
  • Once logged in, locate the user settings icon. It looks like a gear and is usually found at the bottom left corner of the screen near your username.
  • Click on the user settings icon to open the settings menu.
