A Discord email finder could come in handy to help users find an email address if they lose it. But an email finder may also become a tool used by spammers and hackers on unsuspecting Discord users.

The login code can be used to access your Discord account without requiring an email address. Discord currently runs this method at a test stage and may make it available to more users in the future.

Can Discord Plugins Leak Your Email Address?
Several bots or plugins can gain access to your email address through Discord if you allow them.
Some bots may use the email address tied to your account as a Unique ID. Such activity makes it easy for spammers, doxxers, and hackers to guess email addresses of Discord users.
However, it’s worth noting that the developers of such bots usually have no malicious intent against users. But it’s a wise choice to add these bots and disable its access to your email from your Discord account.
You need to check your Discord account and disallow all Access Email Permissions to bots added to your server. You can find these permissions on Discord > User Settings > Authorized Apps.
Also invest in strong passwords and two-factor authentication for your email and Discord accounts, just to be safe.
Removing such permissions from plugins added to your server makes it easy to restrict bots from accessing your email address.
