Discord is a popular VoIP program with a bunch of communication and management focussed features. However, since the developers have put out the Discord API to help third-party developers make bots for the program, it has several developer features embedded in there as well.

Every profile, server and even message on Discord has a unique ID. You can use the program without ever knowing these things, but you might need to know some of these if you’re developing something.

In this article, we’re going over how you can find your Discord user ID.
