What to do if you lose access to Two-Factor Codes?

With Discord, you can easily communicate with your teammates or friends in the form of text, image, video, and audio. It is a really useful freeware app that is specially designed for video gaming communities.

DiscordWhen you create an account on Discord, then like most of the services it offers you to set up Two-Factor Authentication.

Two-Factor Authentication gives you an extra layer of security and in-case your account gets compromised, no one will be able to access your account unless they provide the Two-Factor Authentication codes.

Sometimes bad luck can hit you, and you get logged out of your Desktop app and also lose access to your phone. In that case, it may be impossible for you to provide two-factor authentication codes. So, what to do if you lose access to Two-Factor Codes?

What to do if you lose access to Two-Factor Codes?

  1. Double check that if you are logged into your Discord account from Desktop App or Browser. If you are logged in, luckily, you will be able to see all of your backup codes with your current password.
  2. If that isn’t the case, then you have only one option left and that is to search your computer for “discord_backup_codes.txt”. Search your PC for this file and if you happen to find it, then you are in luck!

These two are the only ways by which you can access your account if you ever lose access.

If you do not have access to your backup codes, then it will be impossible for you to access your account. Discord is unable to remove Two-Factor Authentication or provide you with new backup codes.

You will have to create new Discord Account.

  1. Screw discord for doing this and then not having an option to recover the account. My phone was stolen and I lost everything
    My discord was 5 years old and now I’m locked out of it.
