Discord has multiple verification levels members must complete to attain extra account security and access more features. Five (5) verification levels exist on Discord, but you’ll only be requested to provide a verification code text during registration.
You need to use the Discord verification code sent as an SMS text or email to verify your account. Verifying your account with this code grants you access to several servers you won’t be allowed in with unverified accounts.
In this article, you’ll get details on what a Discord verification code text is. You’ll also get information on how to verify your account with a Discord verification code.
