Whether you’re a business owner or someone who just wants to have a chat, to reap the full benefits on Discord you are required to complete a verification process.

How to Get Verified in Discord

In this article, we’ll show you how to verify your account, your server, or bot. For business owners, our FAQs include the things to avoid if you want to retain your server verification status. And for regular account holders, we’ve detailed what to try if you haven’t received your verification email.

How to Get Verified on a Discord Server

Before starting the server verification process, ensure you meet the following minimum requirements:

  • In addition to being the server owner, you are an official representative of a brand, business, or person of public interest.
  • Your other relevant social media accounts have been authenticated to help Discord verify your application is legit.
  • You have a formal email address linked to your business or brand to demonstrate your official position.

Discord looks for the following when deciding whether a server is in the public’s interest and meets the verification criteria:

  • Authenticity. Your server represents a brand, registered business, or public person of interest.
  • Originality. Your server is the unique presence of what it represents. Only one official server will be verified per brand/business, though there may be some exceptions for the region or language-specific servers.
  • Familiarity. You, your business, or your brand has a strong social media presence and official website. Paid or promotional content is not considered as a source for review.
  • Your server will need to meet Discord’s community guidelines.

Verification is at Discord’s sole discretion. Once verified, you’ll receive a custom, unique URL, “Invite Splash,” and a verification badge as proof that your server is legit.

However, if at this time your server doesn’t meet the criteria for verification, you can always show its authenticity by sharing your server invite from a Twitter account or your official website.

Alternatively, if you’re a streamer or content creator, you can apply for your server to become a Discord Partner. Visit the Discord Partners official webpage for more information.

Server Verification Application

To kick-off your server application:

  1. Navigate to the discordapp.com/verification page.
  2. Click “Apply Now.”
  3. Sign in to your account to complete the application.

How to Get a Verified Discord Bot

Discord requires that bots added to 100 servers are verified. Once the 100-server mark is reached, you will not be allowed to add your bot to more servers without verification.

Once the 75-server mark is reached, you’ll receive an email from Discord including a link to the “Developers Portal” where you can apply for bot verification in advance.

To start the process:

  1. Either click on the link from the email received from Discord or go to the developer’s portal website.
  2. At the top of the page, a “Verification Required” banner will display, with a link to the application.
  3. Once a scanned copy of your official photo ID has been approved, you’ll need to complete the information required in the boxes below. There must be at least 100 characters per box, or once you click “Submit,” the application will not be submitted.
  4. After hitting “Submit,” a “Verification Request Processing” banner will display across the screen confirming successful submission.

Once your bot is verified, it will receive a “Verified” checkmark showing it’s legit.

How to Verify Your Personal Account in Discord

You can verify your account via email or phone. Email verification is essential, whereas phone verification is optional.

When you first create your account, a verification email is automatically sent to your inbox. If you need the email re-sent, do the following from your mobile or computer:

  1. Sign in to your Discord account.
  2. Select “Settings”.
  3. Select the “Account” tab.
  4. A “Verify your email” banner will display at the top of the screen. Select the “Verify” button.
    • On the “Verify your email” page, you can either “Resend Email” or “Change Email.”
  5. To get the verification email re-sent to the same address, select “Resend Email.” Alternatively, choose “Change Email.”
  6. Now check your inbox. The subject of the message will read “Verify Email Address for Discord.” If the email is not there, try the junk or spam folder.
  7. If the message hasn’t shown up after 10 minutes or so, try having Discord resend it again.
  8. Open the email then select “Verify Email.”

Your Discord account is now successfully email verified.
