What information do I need in order to add an Authorized User to my Discover Card account?

It is our practice to verify the identity of all cardholders on a Discover account. To do so, we require you to provide the first and last name, address, date of birth and social security number for all new Authorized Users added to your Discover card account. 


Can I request additional cards for the authorized users?

Yes. When you add an authorized user online, you will be able to specify if you want the user to have a separate card.


Is there a limit to the number of users I can add to my account?

You can add a maximum of 5 users to your account.


What can/can't authorized users do on my account?

Authorized users can make purchases, report any lost or stolen cards, obtain account information, initiate billing disputes, request statement copies, make payments and inquire about fees. Authorized users cannot close the account, add another authorized user, change an address, increase the credit line or request a lower annual percentage rate (APR).

Can authorized users create or change PINs?
