Discord's free text, VoIP, video and chat platform offers more than meets the eye. Its unique features include Twitch integration and many other must-haves for streamers, content creators, and regular users. Whether you own a business or just want to chat, to experience the full benefits of Discord, you need to go through a verification process.

In this article, we'll show you how to verify your account, server, or bot. For business owners, our FAQ includes things to avoid if you want to maintain your server's verified 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 you start the server verification process, make sure you meet the following minimum requirements:

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

Discord looks for the following to decide if a server is in the public interest and meets the vetting criteria:

  • Authenticity. Your server represents a trademark, registered business, or public interest person.
  • Originality. Your server is the unique presence of what it represents. Only one official server will be verified per brand/company, although there may be some exceptions for region or language specific servers.
  • Familiarity. You, your company or your brand have a strong social media presence and an official website. Paid or promotional content is not considered a source of review.
  • Your server will need to meet the Discord Community Guidelines requirements.

Verification is at Discord's sole discretion. Once verified, you will receive a unique and personalized URL, "Invite Splash" and a verification badge as proof that your server is legitimate.



However, if at this point your server does not meet the verification criteria, you can still show its authenticity by sharing your server invite from a Twitter account or your official site.

Alternatively, if you are a streamer or content creator, you can request your server to become a Discord partner. Visit the official Discord Partners webpage for more information.

Server check app

To launch your server application:

  1. Navigate to the discordapp.com/verification page.
  2. Click "Apply Now".
  3. Log in to your account to complete the request.

How to Get a Verified Discord Bot

Discord requires bots added to 100 servers to be verified. Once the 100 server mark is reached, you will no longer be allowed to add your bot to other servers without verification.

Once the 75 server mark is reached, you will receive an email from Discord including a link to the "Developer Portal" where you can request bot verification in advance.

To start the process:

  1. Click on the link in the email received from Discord or go to the Developer Portal website.
  2. At the top of the page, a "Verification Required" banner will appear, with a link to the app.
  3. Once a scanned copy of your government-issued photo ID has been approved, you will need to fill in the required information 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 clicking "Submit", a "Processing Verification Request" banner will appear on the screen confirming successful submission.

Once your bot is verified, it will receive a 'Verified' checkmark indicating that it is legit.



How to verify your personal account in Discord

You can verify your account by email or phone. Email verification is essential, while phone verification is optional.

When you first create your account, a verification email is automatically sent to your inbox. If you need to resend the email, follow these steps from your mobile or computer:

  1. Log in to your Discord account.
  2. Select “Settings”.
  3. Select the "Account" tab.
  4. A "Verify your email" banner will appear at the top of the screen. Select the "Check" button.
    • On the 'Verify your email' page, you can either 'Resend email' or 'Edit email'.
  5. To have the verification email resent to you at the same address, select "Resend Email". You can also choose "Edit Email".
  6. Now check your inbox. The subject of the message will be "Verify email address for Discord". If the email is not there, try the junk or spam folder.
  7. If the message doesn't show up after about 10 minutes, try resending it to Discord.
  8. Open the email, then select "Check email".

Your Discord account is now successfully verified by email.


Additional FAQs

Why did I lose my server verification status?

According to Discord's Terms of Service, a server's verification status can be revoked at any time. Reasons for removal may reflect behavior on and off the Discord platform, including:

Discord verified

The Discord platform includes a plethora of essential features to enhance user experience and help content creators and business owners build their communities.

To ensure that the platform is being used in a legitimate manner, account holders, bot and server owners are required to go through a strict verification process. Once bots and servers are verified, they're marked with a 'Verified' checkmark so everyone knows they're the real deal.
