How to Log Out of Discord on Desktop and Mobile

Hitting the close button on an app doesn’t really close it down entirely. That stands true even for Discord. When you hit the close button, the app minimizes and continues to run in the background. And if you share your computer or phone with someone, that can put you in a spot.

Imagine doing the same on your university computer or someone else’s PC and forgetting to log out from Discord. To prevent unauthorized access to your Discord account, here are two ways to log out of Discord on desktop and mobile.

Logging Out of Discord from All Devices at Once

There might come a time when you need to log out of Discord on all your devices simultaneously. Perhaps your device got missing, or you’re not sure you logged out of a friend’s device. To everyone’s surprise, Discord doesn’t offer a single button that lets you sign out of all devices at once – the reason best known to Discord. There are ways you can log out of those devices using indirect methods.

Method 1: Change Your Password

The easiest way to log out of Discord on all your devices at once is to change your password. After that, the app automatically signs out from previous devices with your details. Here’s how it works:

Step 1: On your PC, click on the Start menu and search for Discord.

Step 2: Click on the Discord app from the results.

Step 3: When the Discord app launches, click on the gear icon at the bottom of the window to launch User Settings.

Step 4: On the new window, click on My Account.

Step 5: Under the Password and Authentication banner, click on Change Password.

Step 6: Provide your old password and your new password on the pop-up window.

Step 7: Click on Done to save your changes.

Starting from Step 3, you can apply the same method above to change the password from your mobile. However, instead of clicking on the gear icon, you will be clicking on your profile image.

Method 2: Enable or Disable 2FA

Enabling or disabling two-factor authentication for Discord on a desktop or mobile app will also help you to log out of Discord on all devices at once. The 2FA feature also adds an extra level of security since it requires you to add a special 6-digit code every time you want to log into a device.
