How to Switch Accounts on Discord Mobile in Easy Steps

Key Points

  • Discord is a popular app for communication and entertainment for gamers.
  • Switching between Discord accounts on the mobile app can be a nuisance.
  • One method to switch accounts is to log out of one account and log in with the details of the other account.
  • Another method is to use a cloning app like Dual Space to have multiple instances of Discord open at the same time.

Discord is an incredible app for communicating with friends and other gamers. You can create avatars and stickers, give yourself a nickname, and keep yourself entertained on channels and servers dedicated to your favorite topics. If you’re an experienced Discord user, you might even be using more than one account. This could be to separate business from pleasure, or one of your gaming identities from another. However, it can become a nuisance to try to figure out how to manage these accounts simultaneously. Although the desktop version of Discord has a handy option for switching accounts by clicking your profile name, unfortunately, this feature remains absent in the mobile app. Not to worry, though, as we’re going to reveal a couple of ways that you can switch between Discord accounts on mobile quickly and easily. Let’s get into it.

How to Switch Discord Accounts on Mobile Using the App

This method for switching accounts is the easiest to follow, but it does require a few steps. To get started, check out the first step below.

Step 1: Log Out of Discord Account

To begin, you’ll have to log out of your Discord account. To do this, tap the smiley face icon in the bottom-right corner and scroll all the way down until you see the “Log Out” button. Tap this, and then tap “Log Out” again to confirm. This will bring you back to the Discord login page.

Step 2: Enter Login Details for the Other Account

To finish switching accounts, simply tap “Log In”, and then enter the email and password associated with your other account. Finish by tapping “Log In” again, and you’ve successfully switched accounts.

How to Switch Discord Accounts on Mobile Using a Cloning App

Although the previous method is fairly simple to use, it’s a little cumbersome. Plus, you have to remember the login details for both of your accounts, which can get annoying. Instead, you can try using a cloning app from the App Store or Play Store (depending on whether you’re using iOS or Android, respectively). For illustrative purposes, we’re using Android. The app we recommend for this is “Dual Space”, but there are many good alternatives for both Android and iOS.

Step 1: Download a Cloning App

First, head to the App Store or Play Store and search for the cloning app. In this case, we’ve gone with Dual Space. Tap the “Install” button to begin the download and installation.

Step 2: Open the Cloning App

Once the app has been successfully installed, tap the icon to open it. You’ll need to agree to the terms and conditions, as well as allow the app access to your files. There will be a button to tap to prompt you to do this, however. After you’ve allowed access, you can tap the back arrow in the top left to go back to the app.

Step 4: Log In to Your Other Account

Now, you can simply open the cloning app and tap Discord to open another Discord window, where you can log in to your other account. This way, you can be logged into two accounts at the same time. For even more convenience, we suggest adding two instances of Discord to the cloning app so that you can open multiple accounts from within the same interface.

Wrapping Up

The Discord mobile app doesn’t have the switch account feature that the desktop version does, but you can achieve the same result on mobile in a couple of ways:

  • Log out of Discord, and then log in again using your alternate account’s email and password.
  • Alternatively, download a cloning app (i.e., Dual Space), add Discord to the cloning app, and then use the cloning app to log into your second account. This will allow you to be logged into both accounts simultaneously.

Frequently Asked Questions
