Discord acts as a popular community and hotspot for avid gamers across the world and due to its scale, there is an abundance of mature and graphic content. As a result in order to keep younger audiences safe from inappropriate content Discord enforces strict control for its users, setting a minimum age limit of 13 years as well as restricting users under the age of 18 from viewing or joining any servers marked NSFW tags. This means that if users input an incorrect Date of birth upon account creation they may be locked out of a lot of content on the platform.
Unfortunately, While users may be able to easily change their usernames and emails etc. changing the birth date isn’t as straightforward of a process and is instead deliberately more tedious for safety purposes
