How To Find Someone On Discord Without Username

Your Quick Answer:

To find someone on Discord without their username, you’ll need to upload the contacts of your device to see if you can find the profile.

Discord allows users to link accounts to mobile numbers. If the user has his account linked to his mobile number, then you can find his account by his phone number very easily.

You need to log into your account and then click on the Friends icon. Click on the cell phone with a plus sign icon. Click on Get Started. Enter your name. 

It will show you the list of Discord accounts linked to the contacts of your device. 

You can send them friend requests if you want. 

You can even use the Nearby Scan feature of Discord to find the accounts when you don’t have the username. However, it can only find accounts that are within 30 meters.

If you don’t know the username, search for the user on social media and then ask for his Discord account username by sending a message. 

You can even try to guess the username to see if you can find the account or not. 

How to find someone on Discord without their username:

Follow the below methods:

1. Find Account from Uploaded Contacts:

On Discord, usually, to send a friend request to a user, you’ll need to know their username and their tag numbers to find the account. However, there’s another way to find accounts too. Discord allows users to link their accounts using their phone numbers. If you have got the linked phone number saved on your device, you can just upload the contacts on your Discord profile to find the accounts of your friends easily. In that case, you won’t need the username or the four-digit tag number either. 

Remember that the phone number of the user whose account you’re trying to find has to be in your phone book and the account needs to be linked with it so that you can find the account on the app. If the number is not saved but it’s just in the call log, it’s not going to get uploaded. Therefore save all the important contacts before uploading them on the Discord profile.

🔴 Steps To Follow:

Step 1: Open the Discord application on your mobile. You need to be sure that it’s updated. 

Step 2: Get into your account by logging in. 

Step 3: Next, you’ll need to click on the Friends icon from the bottom panel of the screen. 

Click on Friends icon

Step 4: Then, you need to click on ‘Find your friends’ that’s at the top of the screen. 

Click on Find Friend using Phone number

Step 5: Click on Get Started. Then click on Allow to provide permission to the app to access your contacts. 

Click on Get Strarted

Step 6: On the next page, enter your name on the box and then click on Next. 

Click on Next

Step 7: You’ll be displayed with the Discord accounts that are linked with the numbers of your device’s contacts.

Step 8: You can select the ones to whom you want to send friend requests and deselect the rest and then click on Next to send friend requests. 

2. Use the Nearby Scan Feature:

Another method to find users on Discord without the username or tag number is by using the Nearby Scan feature. From the name itself, you can get the fact that this feature of Discord scans for the nearby Discord account to find the users and display their accounts on the screen. 

However, this feature only covers a maximum distance of up to 30 meters. Users or accounts beyond 30 meters won’t be scanned by this feature. You also need to know that when this Nearby Scan feature is working, the Bluetooth and the data connection/ wifi of your device has to stay enabled. If you disable either of the switches in the middle of the scanning, the scanning process will fail to find nearby accounts. 

Even the other person whose account is being scanned should also be connected by a data connection or wifi and Bluetooth so that Google’s Nearby can work to find the account. 

Steps to perform this method:

🔴 Steps To Follow:

Step 1: Open the Discord application on your mobile. 

Step 2: Next, you need to log into your account. 

Step 3: Then, click on the Friends icon from the bottom panel. 

Click on Friends icon

Step 4: Click on the Add Friends icon that’s at the top right corner of the screen. 

Click on the Add Friends

Step 5: It will take you to the Add Friends page. You’ll need to click on Nearby Scan.

Click on the Near By

Step 6: Immediately it will start to scan for nearby Discord accounts. It will show Scanning the airwaves on the page. 

Step 7: The results would display the list of accounts that are found within 30 meters.  

🔯 Alternative Methods:

1. Search the User on Social Media & Ask:

If you don’t know the username of any user but still want to find him, all you need to do is find his username and the four-digit tag number of his account. That’s not a very hard task to do as most users these days are on social media from where you can ask the user for his Discord username. 

On platforms like Facebook, you don’t need to link your account with a username. You can just search for the person by his name and then find his Facebook profile. Send a message to him asking him for his Discord username and the tag number of his profile. 

If you happen to know his Twitter or Instagram profile, you can just search for the user’s profile and stalk it first to see if you can find the username and tag number of his Discord profile in the posts. You can even send a message to the user asking him the same. 

There’s a good chance that you’ll be able to get it, after which you can just input the username and the tag number on the Discord application to find the profile. Here’s how you need to do it.

Step 1: Open the Discord app and log into your account.

Step 2: Next, click on the Friends icon

Guess the username and tag number

If you can’t find the exact username and the tag number, you can just guess the username of the profile and then search for the profile.

The usernames are mostly related to the person’s actual name, therefore, just type the actual name and input some random numbers to see if you can get the account or not. The tag numbers are not set by the account owner but it’s given to the user by Discord during the time of account creation. Therefore, there’s no possible way for you to find out the tag number of any user by any indirect method.
