Making a Comeback: How to Undisable a Discord Account

Lindsay Hayes

If your account was disabled by Discord, you'll have to go to their support page and then send them a request to get it back. They usually disable profiles when users repeatedly break one of their rules, so there's a chance that they might reject you.

But if you've self-disabled your account, getting it back is easier. You can reactivate by simply logging back into your account again.

My little brother learned that Discord doesn't always accept requests the hard way. He got his profile disabled after he kept raiding servers, and they refused to restore it. I had to tell him that there was nothing he could do other than make a new account.

If you'd like to know more about this, and more information that I ran him through, you can read ahead.


How Do I Enable a Disabled Account on Discord?

There are 2 ways to re-enable a disabled account. Both of them depend on how you got your Discord account disabled in the first place. If you did it yourself, possibly because Discord was a distraction, you just have to log into your account to get it back (there's a 2-year time window for this, though)

On the other hand, if the Discord team disabled you from their end, you'll have to send them a special request.

Method 1: Re-enable Self-Disabled Account

It's relatively easy to get your account back if you disabled it. All you have to do is go to the login page, and try and log back into your profile. You'll be hit with a message saying that your account has been disabled and will be asked whether you'd like to restore it.

Everything so far is super easy, but things get a bit tricky if it's been over 2 years since you disabled your account. Discord may have permanently deleted your profile - there's a time limit to this. Even if you contact the Discord team, they won't be able to get it back.

If you're good to go, here's a breakdown of how you can get your account back:

Method 2: Re-Enable Account Disabled By Discord's Team

If Discord disabled your account from their end, you'll have to send them a request asking to get it back.

Now, they don't just disable users, unless they've done something wrong. So, there's a big chance that they might refuse to let you back in.

But if you're alright with that, here's what you can do:

Once you send the request, you won't hear back from them immediately. It can take a couple of days.

What Can Get Your Discord Account Disabled?

As mentioned, Discord's support team doesn't just disable users. You would've had to repeatedly break their guidelines.

Here are some community guidelines that you can potentially break and have your account disabled - bullying other users, making false complaints about others, stealing other users' passwords, and raiding other servers.

Another user probably screenshotted you breaking these rules and then reported you to Discord support. These screenshots can be from a direct message and not a text you sent on a Discord server or pictures on social media platforms of some of your Discord messages.

How Can You Self Disable Your Account?

You'll have to go to your account's User Settings to disable it. As you can imagine, the process to follow is a bit different depending on if you're on the Discord mobile app or the website version of the platform.

Here's what you can do on the Discord mobile app:

Here's what you can do on your computer:

Keep in mind what I said about how disabled accounts get permanently deleted after 2 years. Yes, this is a relatively big time frame, but it's still something that you should consider if you're planning on taking a long break.

Also, the process to disable Discord accounts is the same on both iOS and Android and works the same on mobile phones and tablets too.


Answered below are some popular questions.

1. How Do You Delete a Discord Account?

If you were to follow my before method on self-disabling your account, you'd notice that there's a 'Delete Discord Account' button right under 'Disable'. You can click on it to get rid of your account - you'll be asked to verify your details, and then you'll be good to go.

Once your account is gone, it's gone forever. So, there's no trying to get it back. This means that you will lose all of the data on it, so save all the pictures that you want beforehand.

Final Thoughts

There are 2 different avenues that you can take if you are trying to re-enable your Discord account. If Discord disabled your account themselves, you'll have to reach out to their team and request for them to restore your account. Other Discord users might have reported you for breaking rules, which got you disabled in the first place.

Now, if you self-disabled your account, restoring it is easier. You only have to go to the login page, and then enter your account credentials. But keep in mind that Discord users have a specific window (two years) to log back in before their account gets permanently deleted.

Hopefully, you found everything that was discussed useful, and are able to get your Disabled Discord account back!
