How to Access Age-Restricted Servers on Discord

Title: Accessing Age-Restricted Discord Servers: A Comprehensive Guide on Verification Process and Solutions to Common Issues

Discord’s age restrictions can limit your access to certain servers that house valuable communities and exclusive content. This comprehensive guide walks you through the methods to help you join age-restricted Discord servers by verifying your age effectively.

To gain access, Discord offers two primary verification methods: ID Verification and Email Confirmation.

  1. ID Verification: For identity and age validation, provide a clear image of a valid government-issued ID such as a passport, driver’s license, or national identity card. Make sure the image is legible and unobstructed. When submitting your ID for verification, ensure all four edges are visible, and no important information is covered.

  2. Email Confirmation: Verify the email address linked to your Discord account for security purposes. This process can be done directly from the Discord application or through an email sent by Discord. If you haven’t already linked an email to your account, follow these steps:
    a) Log in to the Discord website (
    b) Click on the user settings icon (the gear) at the bottom left corner of the screen.
    c) Select "Appearance" from the left-hand menu and then click on the "Verify Email Address" button.
    d) Follow the instructions to confirm your email address through a verification link sent to your inbox.

Common issues during the verification process include server not found or age-restriction errors.

Try these solutions:

  1. Check your Discord region settings. Servers are often regional, so ensure your account’s region matches the server you wish to join. To do this, go to "User Settings," then select "Region" under the "Appearance" tab.
  2. Clear browser cache and cookies. This can help prevent any saved login information or temporary data from interfering with the verification process.
  3. Use a different web browser. If the issue persists with your current browser, try using an alternative one such as Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, or Microsoft Edge.

Joining age-restricted servers expands your network and provides access to exclusive communities shared by individuals like a 25-year-old gamer who values these unique experiences. As part of a verified community, you’ll gain the opportunity to engage with others while maintaining an appropriate environment for all members.
