As an application, Discord allows you to create multiple accounts for different uses. You can have one for personal, gaming, or work use.
Many people also have several identities for various gaming platforms. If you want to use one account, you will have to log out then log back into the other.
That can be frustrating in the long run. But can you have two Discord accounts open at once?
Discord does not have a feature that allows users to run two instances of Discord at once. Furthermore, you can only create one account with one email address. However, that does not mean you cannot use two Discord accounts at once.
You can use private browsing or open the accounts on multiple browsers. Another option is to switch off cookies from your browsers and try to log in to your accounts.
Can I have two Discord accounts on the same email?
The Discord system only allows a user to register one email address. That means you cannot create multiple accounts associated with one email.
If you try to create a new account using the same email, you will get an error. All you have to do is log in to your original profile or request a new password if you forgot it.
Is it against Discord TOS to have multiple accounts?
It is not against the Discord Terms of Service to have multiple accounts. However, if you use the profiles to abuse any Discord feature, that would be against the TOS.
Note that the company will take action against you. That could mean getting your account suspended.
How to use two Discord accounts at once
Here are some of the methods you can use to run two Discord accounts at once on different devices:
If you have an iPhone, you can use private browsing to run multiple Discord accounts. Follow the steps below:
- Open Safari on your iPhone.
- Tap on the new page button.
- Tap on Private then Done.
- Go to discord.com/login.
- Log in to the account you want to use.
You can open as many private tabs as you want. Each window will allow you to log in to a different Discord account, which means you will run two profiles on the same Safari browser on your iPhone.
Another option is to download the Discord app for iPhone. You will then have to log in to your work account on the app and gaming account on the Safari browser. Both profiles will run on the device simultaneously.
2. Windows PC
You can open two Discord accounts on Windows using different methods.
Open multiple browsers
You can download as many browsers on your Windows computers as you want. The best browsers to consider are Microsoft Edge, Google Chrome, Firefox, Safari, and Opera. Once done:
- Go to discord.com/login on each of the browsers.
- Log in to each of your Discord accounts.
All your Discord accounts will be active on different browsers on your Windows PC. To switch accounts on Discord, the only thing you have to do is to switch browsers.
Use the Discord software for Windows
You will have to download the Discord software for Windows.
- Go to discord.com.
- Click on the Download button to get the Discord executable file.
- Install the software on your computer.

After logging in via the software, go to discord.com on a browser on the same computer. Log in to the other account. It will allow you to run two discord accounts on one device.
If you were wondering how to be in two Discord voice channels at once, then this is the ideal method to use.
3. PTB Discord on PC
PTB or Public Test Build is a beta version of the Discord Client. It gives users a middle ground between the Canary and Stable clients.
The application has many features that you cannot find on the Stable Client. You can use the PTB build on macOS, Windows, and Linux. It also has a web version that you can access at ptb.discordapp.com.
Here is how to use it to run two accounts at once:
- Download the Discord PTB setup file for your specific computer.
- Install the software.
- Log in to your Discord account.
Since you have downloaded the Discord Stable Client version, log in to your other account. That means you will be active on Discord PTB and Discord Stable on the same computer.
You can run two Discord accounts on Android simultaneously by following the steps below:
- Download the Discord app for Android.
- Install the application on your device.
- Open the app and log in to your first account.
- Go to ptb.discordapp.com. Use any browser on your phone.
- Log in to your second account.
If your Android browser offers private browsing, you can open as many tabs as you want. Each window will allow you to log in to different Discord accounts and run them at once.
How to be in two Discord voice channels at once
You can be in two Discord voice channels at once using a web browser on your device. The best applications to use are Shift or Stack browsers.
1. Shift browser
Shift is a desktop application that streamlines your accounts, apps, and workflows. You can use it to switch between Discord accounts without logging in and out. Here is how:
- Download and install the Shift desktop application.
- Open the software after the installation.
- Click on Add Application.
- Search for Discord.
- Click on Save.
- Sign in with your account.
If you want to go to multiple Discord voice channels simultaneously, repeat the above procedure several times. In each step, you will have to log in to a different account. Once done, access the voice channels.
2. Stack browser
Stack is a browser developed for internet users that prefer multitasking. You can use it to manage your social media, messaging, emails, and productivity apps from one platform. Here is how to use it to access two Discord voice channels at once:
- Download and install Stack on your computer.
- Open the Stack application and register for an account.
- Input your email address to receive a password.
- Paste the password back into Stack to continue.
- Open the Discord website using Stack.
- Log in to your account.
- If you want to access multiple channels, open a new window in Stack.
- Click on the three dots icon in the top-right corner.
- Toggle the Private Session switch ON.
- Open Discord in the new window.
- You will see a login screen.
At this point, you can sign in to your other Discord account. If you want to be in several voice channels, you will have to open several windows.
How to clone a Discord app
It is against the Terms of Service to clone the Discord app. That means you will be modifying the official client and using an unofficial one.
The best solution would be to use the methods described above to run two accounts simultaneously.
You can have two Discord accounts open at once on any device. To do that, you will have to use private browsing on your computer and download the Discord Client desktop software.
Alternatively, install the Stack or Shift browser on your PC. Once done, open several windows and log in to as many accounts as possible. If you are using a mobile device, install the Discord app and then open the PTB Discord web client and sign in to your accounts.
