  • i cannot log into my main account on discord because someone tried logging into my account and it’s not my location so when i tried to just verify it so i could just change my password so they can’t get back in apparently it expired yet was sent not long from when i saw the message it’s really stressing me because i had tons of friends on this account which is making me well upset

    I can see why some people would want this feature, but in my circumstances it causes problems.

    I think this feature should remain, and be switched on by default, but there should be an option to switch it off.

    I am quite capable of making my own decisions about the security of my account. Why am I denied the option to turn this feature off?

    I actually quite like it. It always gets delivered to my mail and can protect from random people logging into your account.

    i’m having the issue that i’m not receiving the actual email - i’ve been locked out of one of my accounts for months because both the password reset and new location emails are not coming to my inbox or spam. i’m certain i’ve typed the right address, and i still receive discord emails on my other addresses/accounts. it’s kinda frustrating as there is literally no way i know of to fix it. anyone got suggestions???

    Such an annoying feature...and can't even check email due to not updating my phone number on my email account as it also wanted me to verify who i am...

    4 Years later, I don't think it has been fixed now but if you are logged in on mobile, you can use the QR Scanner feature to log in without the new location feature until they patch it, I guess.

    "New login location detected, please check your e-mail".

    4 years later, still not fixed. According to many posts on Google, it looks like the email is actually never sent, which is the bug I'm having too.

    This is the 2nd time they're effectively banning me due to their login system not working.

    The weird thing is the support website is working fine, I can login. But I can't use Discord and talk to people on there anymore. And Discord doesn't detect that I'm already logged on the support side. They're using 2 separate systems.

     

    EDIT : I created a support ticket for this and they solved it in 10 minutes by fixing the email system. I got the email and was able to login after that.
