How to change your Discord tag

Besides having a username on Discord, you are given a tag right next to your username on Discord. Your Discord tag is a unique, random, 4-digit based number that sets you apart from other users. In fact, users on Discord regard it as part of their identity on Discord. The good news is that Discord allows you to customize your tag number. Here’s how to change your Discord tag with a few simple steps.

Changing your Discord tag number (Step-by-step)

To change your custom tag number on Discord, you will need to be a Discord Nitro/ Discord Nitro Classic user (It is a premium service offered by Discord) or a Discord partner to take advantage of this!

Keep in that you are allowed to change your tag number between 0001 and 9999, depending on its availability. For example, if it’s already in use of another user, you won’t be able to avail it.

Let’s get to it right away!

Step 1: Go to or launch Discord app on your PC. Make sure you’re already logged in to continue.

Step 2: Click “User Settings” shown as gear icon next to your username and microphone controls, in the bottom left corner of your screen.

Step 3: You can see “My Account” tab with your username and email. Tap on that “edit” button next to your username.

Step 4: Click on your tag number, and create a new 4-digit tag number by replacing your current one. Remember you can choose any number between 0001 and 9999.

Step 5: Type in your email and current password, and hit “Save” button to confirm.

Step 6: A confirmation window will appear informing you that once your Discord nitro ends, your tag will be reset or randomized. Tap on “Change Discord Tag” to confirm your action.

And that’s it! You can now enjoy the perk of having a brand new tag number.

Change your Discord tag number without Discord

If you don’t want to use Discord Nitro to change your Discord tag number, you can change it with the help of a bot. However, bear in mind that it will only randomize your tag number to a new one. Let’s break down this process in simpler words.

Your Discord tag changes when you change your name to a user who has the same name as yours. For example, if your name and the tag is jacksparrow#0005 and the other user has the same name as jacksparrow#0004, then your tag changes to a new one.

Follow the steps to learn how you can execute this without using Discord Nitro!

Step 1: Firstly, make sure that you’re already login into your Discord account. Secondly, you must have a server to which you’ll add this bot to.

Step 2: Go to and click on “Invite to Discord” button to proceed.

Step 3: Now, select the server in which you want this bot to be added to, and hit “continue” button.

Step 4: You might be asked to give permissions to your new bot, you can choose any from the permission options.

Step 5: Tick “I’m not a robot” Captcha, and you will be redirected to its landing page.

Step 6: Go back to Discord, and go to your server where you just added a bot to.

Step 7: In the chatbox type in “!discrim” and send it.

Step 8: The bot will show you the members who are online, and have got the same tag as yours. If it shows you as the only account online with the same tag, it simply means that other users are offline. So be patient!

Step 9: As soon as you see a user with the same tag as yours, copy that user’s name.

Step 10: Now, navigate to User settings (gear icon), and click “edit” to change your username.

Step 11: Replace your username with the one you just copied.

Step 12: Fill in your email and current password, and hit “save” button to change it.

And you’ve successfully randomized your new tag. You will be able to change your username after a bit as Discord allows you to change your password every 2 hours.
