How to change your nickname on a Discord server

Discord’s nickname option allows you to have a different name for yourself on any Discord server you’ve joined. This means that you can be called “Mahesh” on one server and “Harry” on another. Here’s how to do that in Discord on desktop and mobile.

Note: To change your nickname on a server, the server owner or administrator must have the “Change Nickname” permission enabled. Even if you changed your nickname, people can find you with your original username.
