Discord is a great place to simply talk to your friends, hang out with them, even watch movies and play games. It also provides you options to change your personal settings any way you want but, it does not provide you with the direct option to change your age on Discord. Even though it doesn’t, you are still able to do so.
In Discord, the minimum age requirement to create an account is 13. But, Discord provides thousands of servers and communities that you cannot join until you turn 18 because they are NSFW (Not Safe for Work). So if there are any cases when you entered the wrong date of birth and want to change it to your appropriate age, you have to fulfil a series of requirements in Discord.

How to Change your Age on Discord without Verification?
There is only one way to change age on Discord without verification and that is by creating a new Discord account. For safety reasons and to make sure that children are not able to access the NSFW (Not Safe for Work) servers, this age policy of Discord is very strict. So, if you do not want to change your age through verification, you can create a new Discord account in such cases.
To do this, you will also have to create a secondary email address to link with the account and set your age as appropriate. Even when you submit a request and do everything, discord may find those things faulty and not update your age. In those cases too, you can do this.
What happens if you try to access NSFW servers despite being Underage?
The children between 13-17 years are not allowed to access NSFW servers by Discord for safety reasons. If you do so and become a part of any such community and anyone who finds it reports your account then, Discord may disable your account. If you are not reported, Discord may not find it out but in case you are, your account will get locked. Then, you will have to go through the age verification process to gain complete control again.
In this way, you can change your age on Discord through both phones and computers. The step of adding your photo with documents is optional but, it is required in order to verify your age. After you have submitted your request, it may take 1-3 business days for Discord to change your age and once it is done, you can easily be a part of many Discord servers.
