Luckily, you can resort to this quick guide to find someone on Discord.

Using Discord’s Add Friend Function

If you have the aforementioned unique ID and their username, finding a user on Discord is pretty simple just by using the Add Friend function.

First, open Discord, go into Home, and click on Add Friend.

You will need to enter the username and the ID number. Example: DiscordUser#0000. After that, click on Send Friend Request. Once they accept your request, you will be able to talk or even invite them to your server.

Alternatively, if the user is already on your friend list, use the search function in Home on the Discord app.

Searching Through Server Members

If you don’t know the username or the ID number, finding a specific user is not that simple.
