We asked parents how easy they thought it would be for a child to pretend to be older in order to sign up to Discord, and whether they had to verify their phone number or email address. Based on these answers, Discord has received a neutral rating for its sign up process.
Here are some of the things parents said:
- “I just put in the username I wanted, an email address and password, and clicked create.” - Mother of a 17 yr old girl
- “Seemed a very straightforward process, verification was optional.” - Father of an 18 yr old
