Open Discord in a browser like Chrome or Firefox;
Open DevTools pressing F12 or ⌘ command+option+J;
Copy the deleteDiscordMessages.js script and paste it in the Console, then press ENTER;
A window will be opened, fill the variables and click the START button.
- Open the dev tools (F12), open the Network tab. (You should clear all requests for better readability if you see some.)
- Delete one message manually. In the request log, you will see a request with a DELETE method.
- Click on the request to open the details, and on the Headers tab, copy the 'authorization' token. It's a long text > with dots like

DO NOT SHARE YOUR
Sharing your authToken on the internet will give full access to your account! There are bots gathering credentials all over the internet. If you post your token by accident, LOGOUT from discord on that same browser you got that token imediately. Changing your password will make sure that you get logged out of every device. I advice that you turn on 2FA afterwards.
If you are unsure do not share screenshots, or copy paste logs on the internet.

This is probably due to system messages.
Eventually they will fill up the queue and not be able to be deleted. So it will keep querying and only getting the same system messages in return.
