How to Change Your Discord Tag Without Nitro

A Discord tag is a hashtag with four numbers beside your username.

For example, if your username is “lhw”, your username with the tag will be “lhw#6335”.

If someone wants to add you on Discord, they need to enter your username along with your tag.

Otherwise, they won’t be able to add you.

Discord tags are randomly generated after you’ve set a username.

If you have Nitro, you’ll be able to change your tag by navigating to your account settings.

In your account settings, you can edit your username and change your tag.

However, if you don’t have Nitro, you need to use another method to change your tag.

In this guide, you’ll learn how to change your Discord tag without Nitro.

How to change your Discord tag without Nitro

To change your Discord tag without Nitro, you need to go to your account settings and edit your username.

Next, change your username to your tag, then change it back to your previous username immediately after.

By doing this, your tag will be changed to a random one.

This method does not allow you to edit the tag, but it changes your tag until you get one that you like.

Hence, if you happen to get a tag that you don’t like, you need to repeat the steps again.

However, you need to repeat the steps in intervals.

If you change your username too often, you’ll be temporarily blocked from doing so.

So, make sure to change your username in an interval of 30 minutes or more to avoid this.

Here’s how to change your Discord tag without Nitro:

  1. Go to your account settings
  2. Change your username to your tag
  3. Change your username back to your previous one
  4. Repeat steps #1 to #3

1. Go to your account settings

To begin with, you need to go to your account settings.

In this guide, we’ll use the Discord mobile app.

You can also use Discord on a desktop for this, but the user interface will be a little different.

Firstly, download the Discord app on your mobile device if you haven’t already.

Then, log in to your Discord account.

Once you’re on Discord, tap on your profile icon on the bottom navigation bar.

This will open the settings page.

On the settings page, tap on “Account” to go to your account settings.

After you’ve tapped on “Account” your account settings will open.

On your account settings, you’ll see an “Account Information” header.

Under the “Account Information” header, you’ll see four options.

This includes your username, email, phone, and password.

Tap on “Username” to edit your username.

2. Change your username to your tag

After you’ve tapped on “Username”, the “Edit Username” page will open.

On the page, you’ll see your current username and tag.

Your tag is located next to your username.

Firstly, you need to change your Discord username to your tag.

For example, if your tag is “#7350”, change your username to “7350”.

After you’ve changed your username to your tag, tap on “Save” to save your changes.

After you’ve tapped on “Save”, the “Verify your password” page will open.

On the page, you need to verify your password to change your username.

On the “Password” field, enter your Discord password.

Then, tap on “Done” to change your Discord username to your tag.

3. Change your username back to your previous one

After you’ve tapped on “Done”, you’ll be directed back to your account settings.

On your account settings, you’ll see that your Discord username is changed to your tag.

You’ll also see that your tag has changed.

Instead of “#7350”, your tag is now changed to “#6335”.

Whenever you change your username to your tag, your tag will be changed to a random one.

In this case, your tag has been randomly changed to “#6335”.

Now, tap on the “Username” option again.

After you’ve tapped on the “Username” option, you’ll land on the “Edit Username” page again.

On the page, change your username back to your previous one.

For example, if your previous username is “lhw”, change it back to “lhw”.

Then, tap on “Save” and verify your password again to save your changes.

4. Repeat steps #1 to #3

If you’re satisfied with your tag, you don’t have to do anything else.

However, if you’re not satisfied with your tag, you need to repeat steps #1 to #3 again.

Repeat steps #1 to #3 until you get a tag that you like.

As tags are randomly generated, you may have to change your username multiple times until you get a tag that you like.

However, you need to avoid changing your username too often.

If you do, you’ll get temporarily blocked from doing so.

To mitigate this, you need to change your username in an interval of 30 minutes or more.

You’ve successfully learned how to change your Discord tag without Nitro!

Conclusion

Changing your Discord tag is tedious as it requires you to constantly change your username.

To avoid this, you can get Nitro to make the changing of your tag simple.

Once you have Nitro, you can edit your tag by going to your account settings.

Then, tap on “Username” and edit your tag by changing the 4-digit number on the hashtag field.

Keep in mind that you can only change your tag 5 times per hour.

If you change your tag or username more than 5 times in an hour, you’ll get a “You are changing your username too fast. Try again later.” error.
