Then you’ll need to swipe the switch next to the Developer Mode to enable the mode. After you switch it on, you’ll see the switch turned green with a small tick mark on it.

Step 2: Open the User’s profile

After turning on the advanced mode, you need to open the user profile of the person whose discord ID you want to know.  On the profile page, you’ll be able to see the username of the user.

How to Find Someone on Discord without Tag Number:

If you don’t have the tag number of any user, you can still find them on Discord. You can use the simpler way of adding someone without their numbers. Discord has a quick feature i.e. the Nearby scan. This feature works only on the mobile app of Discord.
