    @Stelard multiple user accounts is a thing for company computers or public computers...not for home computers. In most family situations it's simply not worth the extra time or resources to setup multiple users and log into all of them every time you reboot.

    Besides it doesn't address mobile users at all

    @Assimilater I disagree, my family had our own windows accounts on shared computers for as long as Windows has supported it. It's a good idea for security and privacy, and MS is still pushing it. It could stand to be made a little more user friendly, perhaps.

    I will concede mobile support for multiple users is not really there yet, but that's because the presumption is that a mobile device will not be shared.

    @Audhumbla I think we might actually be arguing for the same thing, after reading what you said. Allow me to take a step back and clarify.

    What I want is a way to be simultaneously logged in to multiple accounts, so that you can see all the servers and friends of all logged in accounts, and messages coming in on any of those accounts show up. Ideally it would let you change the colour scheme of the app to match whichever account you're about to send a message with, to prevent any accidents. And if they made it easy to log some of those accounts in and out to suit the 'hey mum I just need to send a message to Jon real quick' use-case, so much the better. This would suit me, and I think most of the people in this thread.

    What I do not want is for Discord to give us a way to log out and then log in to a different account slightly faster, and then call it a day. We already have ways to do this, albeit not an ideal way; Windows accounts, launching Discord as a different user login, password managers, etc etc. If you're okay with cutting off account A to check on account B, then you can do that. If you want to keep 2 or more accounts open at once, that's difficult to do on Windows and impossible on mobile (unless you use Android islands, which only lets you do 2 accounts at once and involves installing Discord again, and your keyboard app, and other stuff).

    @Audhumbla Obviously, this isn't a solution, but if your workplace contacts you via discord often, you may want to look into a app cloner for whatever OS your phone is running. Should Discord ever sort out a proper means themselves, you can always change to it then!

    I have a personal account and a company account. I'd like to log into both simultaneously, with one set to active at a time. Please consider a UX update to the native desktop app that would allow me to sign in to multiple accounts (saving the passwords too) and allowing me to switch within 2 clicks to one of those accounts at any time.

    Thanks.

    My solution was using the app

    https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.oasisfeng.island&hl=en

    I still want discord to support multiple accounts but i will use this app for divide work and personal

    I have solved this by having both the standard Discord installed and Discord Canary installed with a different account.

    But a native solution would definitely be better.

    Thinking about this, it could be easily abused. I've seen larger servers get new users that are only there to spam or post obscene images, when they get banned they just join under another new account. This feature would make it easier for them to do that. Would do you need multiple accounts for? I suggested a "view server as user" feature which would allow you to view a server as a user with certain roles and such to test permissions, which is my reasoning for having a second account.

    @MarsMehlo You guys should really have your own Windows accounts rather than sharing one. Security reasons aside, this would let you each have your own desktop background, icon placement, folder settings, window colour schemes, every single app you use could be left logged in as you and know who you are, etc etc.

    The only downside is when you turn the computer on it would ask which person to log in rather than just going to the desktop. Oh, and I guess it takes a moment to log in the other person the first time, but once you're both logged in swapping between desktop sessions is really quite fast.

    its the idea to discourage it!

    @Assimilater Fast user switching would be nice, but it's not as necessary as multiple simultaneous users in one app, because fast user switching is already build into computer and mobile OSes.

    @Audhumbla Mostly the family thing. I'm of the opinion that no person should share an account with anyone else, including family members. That includes Windows login accounts. If someone wants to use their discord you can just log out of Windows, or let them log in while you're still logged in, it's a feature that's existed for a long time now. However one person with multiple accounts really needs to be a feature of Discord to work in a satisfactory way..

    Again, in an ideal world we'd have both features, but I don't think they're going to do both. I think they'll implement fast user switching into Discord (if they do anything at all) and call it a day, and that would really suck because it's a feature we already have built into our computers and mobile devices.

    (Also, if you think what I'm suggesting sounds like a different idea, I agree. But my own suggestion was deleted because it was a 'duplicate' of this. Yes, I am upset about it.)

    i was about to suggest this.

    but there is a way you can still do it , you can install discord canery (it is a super beta version of discord) for now i use canery to use my other account!

    but i have 3 accounts and i don't want to log out or launch an incognito tab to log in

     

    ok back to the suggestion, i think it sould be in the settings tab in discord or right clicking on the user picture where the mute button is (examples i made in 5 minutes because why not https://imgur.com/a/Iiq7oW0)

    Can't you just open two tabs but log into a different account on one of them? Works for me.

    If it requires a significant back-end change then the project wasn't designed with enough modularity in the first place....

    I see discord is just like every other website/program/app in ignoring feedback from their users for extended periods of time 0_o
    How many upvotes do you need before you implement something that should take all of 2 minutes to do? If it takes longer you have incompetent developers

    Does discord seriously think that with behavior like this their product is worth $100 / year?! With good service that price is laughable

    Imaginary? Rockstar? Hell, I could do it if I was familiar with discord's code-base. It's not that special a feature....you just need to store multiple authentication tokens instead of a single one in the app, and have a rudimentary gui to switch between them

    You can use https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.oasisfeng.island to duplicate the app into the work profile essentially having two copies

    That seems unsafe in the first place:

    They can just access your account without anything stopping them from just switching to your account. 

     

    Not sure why you have to personally attack me but you do you mate.
