Change or Forgot Password

If you've forgotten your password, or need to change it, you've come to the right place. You can access Minecraft in the following ways, each using a different method to change your password.

  1. To reset your password for a Mojang account (used for Minecraft: Java Edition), visit the Forgot Password page on Minecraft. 
    1.  To reset the password on a Legacy account, please choose the "Mojang Login" option from the launcher and click on the "Forgot password?" link. You can also visit the this page
  2. To reset the password for a Microsoft account (used for Minecraft: Java Edition and Bedrock), follow these steps: 
    1. Go to Recover Your Account and enter your Microsoft account email address. 
    2. Tell us where you’d like us to send a security code (email or phone number). 
    3. After you receive your security code, you’ll be prompted to choose a new password and enter it twice. Passwords must be at least eight characters long and should contain a mix of upper- and lowercase letters, numbers, and symbols. 

Note: You must have your Mojang or Microsoft account email address to reset your password. If you’ve forgotten this email address, you’ll need to recover it from your email provider before you reset your password. If you closed a Microsoft account, you have 60 days from that closure to sign in and reopen it. After 60 days, your account and data expire. 

If you receive an "InvalidCredentialsException" error, please read the Login Failed. Invalid Username or Password article. 

If you have attempted to reset your password and do not receive the reset email, please visit Cannot Get Mojang System Emails

Remember that it is possible to have multiple accounts or account types. Minecraft accounts are explained on the Minecraft: Java Edition Account Types page. For the Bedrock version of Minecraft contact Microsoft Support, as they can manage your account. 

If you are unable to reset your password, please locate your transaction ID, and then contact Minecraft support.
