A Roblox user ID is a specific code that’s assigned to each account within the game. It’s like a digital fingerprint that distinguishes one player from another. For instance, a user ID could look like “8472109149”. While you have the flexibility to modify your display name by going to settings and selecting the “Edit” option next to “Display Name”, the user ID is fixed and cannot be altered. This ID number remains constant and is exclusive to your account.
If you’re using “GlobalDataStores” to store or retrieve player information, the user ID becomes crucial. It can be used as a unique identifier, serving as a key to access a player’s data within the data store. This ensures that each player’s information remains separate.
In this article, you’ll learn how to find your user ID in Roblox on your phone/mobile and desktop.

- Locate the User ID: Your user ID is the number within your profile URL. For instance, if your profile URL is “https://www.roblox.com/users/2784109194/profile”, your user ID is “2784109194” situated between “users” and “profile”.
- Browser Version: Keep in mind that you can’t find your user ID in the mobile Roblox app. This is because you can’t view your profile URL there.
- Use Browser: To see your profile URL and user ID, access Roblox through a web browser. On iOS or Android devices, open Roblox using Safari or Chrome.
Go to the Roblox website

- Click on the Official Site: Look for the first search result that corresponds to the official Roblox website. It should simply say “Roblox.” Click on this link.
