Welcome to our community!

Hack The Box is an online platform that allows users to test, train and enhance their penetration testing skills as well as to exchange ideas and methodologies with other members of similar interests.

Connecting your accounts

Once you've joined the Discord server, you will need to link your Hack The Box account to your Discord account.

This will not only set your name on Discord to the same one you have on the Platform, allowing other members and staff to easily reach out to you but will also display your Hacker Rank on your profile and provide you with access to all of the member-only channels on the server.

In order to get verified and link your account to Hack The Box, first, navigate to the #rules channel on Discord and carefully proceed to read all of the items listed there. Breaking any of the rules will result in a ban on the Discord server. Note that all bans on the server are directly mirrored on the platform, thus disabling your user accounts on Hack The Box.

Then, please proceed to the #welcome channel where a message from our moderators will explain how to verify your Discord account against your Hack The Box account. In order to do so, click on the #bot-commands channel link mentioned in the message, scroll down to the bottom of the chat, and type in the command ++verify.

This will prompt 3 new private messages to your Discord inbox from the Hack The Box bot. The subsequent steps will be mentioned in detail in the conversation with the bot.

Warning: Do not share your unique account identifier token with anyone. Hack The Box staff or moderators will never ask for your unique account identifier token string under any circumstances.


If you prefer a more classic, slower-paced method of communication with the community, you can visit our Forums.

Both hints for challenging tasks and new ideas related to the cybersecurity industry are shared between members. It's easy to navigate as all of the posts are placed in their own category and it's directly accessible from the platform itself.

Please take note of the fact that accounts on the Forums are separated from accounts on any of our other products, such as the main Platform, Academy, or the CTF platform. If you decide to delete your Hack The Box account on the main platform, you will be required to make a deletion request to the Technical Support team in order to proceed with the deletion of your Forum account as well.

We have a separate article detailing how to register on and use the Forums.
