If you are here, you must be wondering how you can get started on Discord!
Get the app
If you don't want to download the app, you can use our web client to access Discord directly from your browser.
For an in depth list of compatible Browsers and Operating Systems, check the OS/system requirements guide here.
Create your account
You can create your account on the Discord registration page, or in the app.
Claim your account
You'll be able to enjoy all of the chat functions Discord has to offer, but it's important to claim your account by verifying your email address. This will ensure that you keep your username and Discriminator (those four digits next to your user name), as well as remembering all the servers you've joined!
To claim your account, simply check the email that you used to create your account. If you do not see an email, simply click the Resend button in the orange banner at the top of the app:
Click Verify Email in the delivered email, and you're good to go!
Note: Some servers are locked behind a security Verification wall that requires a verified account before you can access chat functions. Read more about server verification levels here!
Let's get down to business
Now that you have the app and your account, it's time to dive into some basics!
