Way to save and switch profiles quickly

    This feature was recently implemented in Twitter, you can have multiple accounts linked together now and easily switch between them without having to log in and out, and I think it is great since I use 2 accounts for most social media for different purposes. 

    Google has it. Telegram has it. To name a few. You see notifications for both profiles and can always be up to date, really, just look at - let's say - Twitter's system and adapt it, it will be perfect. 

    And judging from the amount of upvotes this post gets I think a lot of people think the same.

    I have two accounts, personal and work

    I can't use my personal in the work environment, i need to switch every time

    How many votes does an idea need before it becomes reality!?!?!

  • Sledgend

    I like this. I have a few accounts for different email addresses, and logging on and off to talk do different people about certain things is a pain. The problem would be the abuse. Bans/kicks wouldn't be nearly as effective. In fact, anyone who utilizes this feature would be able to get around a ban in seconds or minutes.

    I have an account for servers with people who know me IRL and an account where I try to minimize knowledge of my IRL identity. On my desktop, I can kind of manage by using the stable version and the beta version, but I can't do the same on my iPhone. And even on my desktop, I'd prefer being able to switch between accounts on the same application.

    @DanKGooGLy That doesn't change the fact that people need to have different profiles/accounts for different things. Mainly (as you can read in the bunch of comments) personal vs work profile differences. 
    The only way to achieve this right now is by multiple accounts.

    Secondly, as others have raised it's not just about one person having multiple accounts. It's also about one family computer having different family members having to sign in and out constantly. And what people want is an ease of life. 

    Your comment (ie their comment) doesn't change the problem nor provide a solution. And, given the amount of other platforms right now that have the ability to do this same thing it's not an unreasonable thing to ask.

    Even if you had it where one account had multiple "profiles", you still have the issue of multiple accounts in a family. If you have the ability to easily switch between accounts then having multiple accounts shouldn't matter

    This would be very helpful for those trying to test a server. So they can switch to an alt and check for bug.

    This feature is useful for switching between my personal Discord account and my business account.

  • bananacreamphi

    I desperately need this feature.

  • andre_ss6

    I use Discord both on work and personal. Web doesn't have all features of desktop (especially sharing screen) and having to login in and out of an account every day is very frustrating. Using PTB also isn't great as, well, it's PTB, it may have bugs (also they both have the same icon).

  • Vera Accalia

    This would especially be useful during the covid pandemic. With workplaces moving online, this would be EXTREMELY useful for people who have work accounts and personal accounts, being able to switch between the two would be helpful. 

  • Audhumbla

    Im here for my annual bump of this request. Also to second @void - the fact that I can actually call commenting again as an annual thing is sad.
    I still need it, I still want it, it's annoying there is no sign of life outside this post thread. The amount of upvotes and activity this has obtained, should be enough to at least validate an acknowledgement response saying they're looking into it. i don't care if it is difficult, just say it's difficult, give us some feedback! It seems like its getting ignored at this point >.>

  • JonathanK

    This is a critical missing feature. It's the make or break point on deciding to move our organizations from Slack and Teams into Discord. People don't want to use their gamer profile at work and switching between profiles is not seamless enough.



  • borninbronx

    Yes multiple identities on 1 account would be ok too as long as they are effectively treated as different discord IDs, but in practice the effect is the same.

    i started using discord for playing games with friends.

    My company adopted it, so I use it for work too.


    I want my friends to see which games I'm playing when i'm not working and see me online.

    I don't want my coworkers to see what I play in my free time or see i'm online.

    Then I've community servers related to my professional activity but not my company, i'm active there and even mod.

    To be reachable I had to give my friends and those community both my accounts and ask people to just ping both to avoid missing conversation.

    It would be so much easier if I could just have both accounts on my phone and PC and just switch between them whenever i want (but still receive notifications from both).


    It's like if you had to logout and re-login to your email every time you need to switch email account. Doesn't make sense.

    Commander GreyFox - Hard disagree. I shouldn't need to have two separate installations of different versions of the same application, or some additional 3rd-party "intermediary", or even a "work-around" to be able to use a feature that is already built in to many existing social media and communications platforms. Twitter, for example, makes it very easy for me to be connected to my various "presences" and still be at least moderately aware of activity in any/all of them at any given time. I can do this through both the desktop, web-based version and the mobile app with minimal effort. I simply log in to each account I want to "monitor" on the specific device and I can then see which of those account(s) has recent activity.

    I personally see no need to increase the number of servers to which I can connect - at least at this time - so my opinion would be that that is a superfluous request, whereas you deem this suggestion/request "useless". It's a matter of differing use-case scenarios. Each individual will use the service in a way that works best for them, and no one way is inherently "better" than any other.

  • Gentlefox

    Multiple accounts would be great. I can imagine most people with a username tied to their real name don't want publicly disclose every chat they're in.

  • Richard W

    Three words, "Work Life Balance".  Some of us are _required_ to have a "professional" discord account separate and distinct from our personal discord channel.  And then there are some of us that work for more than one employer that each requires a separate and distinct discord account.  That this is not already an option is myopic and speaks volumes.

  • Assimilater

    @Audhumbla I sincerely hope the discord team gets their heads out of their asses and read what you wrote...

  • AndyClausen

    Don't know if this has been mentioned before, but another use case is having work/personal account. We're considering discord instead of slack at work, but it's a hassle to log in and out of accounts on all devices.
    Mostly just for mobile though.

  • L'Ogre

    I thinck this is really useful for when you have two or more account and you don't want to mix professional and personal Discord's account.

    So I made a concept of this feature, It presents like that (https://media.discordapp.net/attachments/705125613312147537/705125703728890026/design_1.PNG) , 

    so you have access at discord when you go to "login", you can also add an account on the "+" (https://media.discordapp.net/attachments/705125613312147537/705125714416107640/design_3.PNG)

    After for each account record on this computer you have somme option when you click on the three point (https://media.discordapp.net/attachments/705125613312147537/705125708728500264/design_2.PNG),

    you have three options, "default user" when this option is check and if the next option isn't check you have access at your discord account when you start Discord, you have the next option "Request password" when this option is check you need to type just the password at each connection (https://media.discordapp.net/attachments/705125613312147537/705125717712699402/design_4.PNG),

    i think this option is helpfull for more security, and the last one "Delete account of this computer" this just delete Discord's account information of connection on this computer.

    There are a number of workgroups I'm involved with professionally either looking at or have implemented Discord, and I'm not engaging with them from my personal/gamer profile, I need to engage from a professional account.

    Having to log out and switch accounts all the time is really frustrating and impedes productivity, and if Discord wants to be successful in the professional space against Slack and the like, they're going to need to take this requirement seriously.

    (Cross-posted from the conversation on Reddit - https://www.reddit.com/r/discordapp/comments/j3ayjj/multiaccount_or_multiidentity_handling/)

    I guess I was bored because I took the time to make up a couple more rough mock-ups to throw out ideas:

    Here's a variation of the first where things are a little more visible without extra clicks:

    This one takes the alt accounts that were in the "pop-up" and puts them underneath the currently active account without adding too much clutter. The avatar images could even be resized down some to make them even less obtrusive.

    I forgot to add an "arrow" or something to provide a quick way to manage the logged in accounts, but that could easily be tacked on to the right of the avatar list.

    Here's another option that uses a "tabbed" interface:

    Taking from the design of most modern browsers, each logged in account has its own tab. I'm not sure I like this one as much, but I'm throwing it out there just to provide another design idea. In my head, the tabs could be configurable through UI options to show or hide the account name, depending on the user's preferences.

    Again, these are just my own personal ideas for how it could be designed/implemented. If Discord gives us something else entirely, I certainly wouldn't be disappointed.

    Reading back, Stelard your mockups do not pass the UX design checklist. Namely, colour must never be the only discernible difference, because some people are colourblind. This is why discord’s little dots indicating when someone is online/away/offline have different shapes in them.

    For the record, I do not want everything merged between accounts. To me, that would be a nightmare. I also don’t see how it would work when I am part of the same server with multiple accounts. I want accounts to be switched and separated, but I also want notifications for those accounts. Erudian has presented some great solutions that seem to me to be the best of both worlds.

  • ヤシュ ミッタル

    I think we cannot login to multiple account on web. On mobile sure we can login to multiple accounts like: Twitter and Instagram.

    I would love this, I personally have two discord accounts, one for personal and one for everything else, this would make using both SO MUCH EASIER, as of right now it takes forever to switch.
  • warlok

    This is a very needed feature. I coach an esports team at school and would very much like to have a work account and a personal one so that students can't see my details.

  • Ki

    Yes please!

    I have a work account and a personal account (this being my personal) and it would be very nice to be able to switch between them with ease or being logged in with both at the same time and just being able to switch sessions so linking them would be great.

  • mcgroarty

    This is an important privacy feature, which even Telegram, Twitter, Google, and Slack have as a first class feature on mobile. What we share is contextual. I don’t want to share my game identity with coworkers. I don’t want to share my work identity (we use Discord with our customers) with gamers. Being able to log into both accounts in my iPhone and switch between them would make life so much easier.

    I wouldn’t mind one bit if secondary accounts had to be premium for us to remain logged into two or more accounts at once. It would be worth it for the privacy and convenience, if this helps the Discord product team sell the idea internally. It could sell a lot of upgrades.
