Why have I been banned from Minecraft?


We want players to be able to have fun and be safe when playing Minecraft online with others, and as such, we have started to implement moderation features such as permanent bans for the most egregious violations of our Community Standards on Minecraft Bedrock. Specifically, our highly trained moderation staff is looking at the most egregious violations in public Featured Servers and Realms (please review the Realms End User License Agreement). Personal worlds will not be reviewed.

Players that have been found to be in violation of our Community Standards will find the message above when they attempt to sign in to Minecraft on any platform (non-Java edition). In this state, players are not allowed to play on servers, join Realms, host or join multiplayer games, or use the marketplace. They are also not allowed to access Minecraft Earth. Additionally, Xbox players will no longer have access to their worlds.

Currently, permanent bans will be issued to players found in the most sever violations of our Community Standards. We will be rolling out new moderation features in the months to come. Possible violations that may result in bans or suspensions include:

  • hate speech
  • sexual content and soliciting improper contact
  • real life threats
  • exposing the personal information of others
  • posting links to malicious software
  • impersonating staff
  • cheating/exploits (this includes anything that would negatively affect another person’s gameplay experience)
  • general commercial spamming

If your account has been banned and you have a Realms Plus subscription, you will need to cancel your subscription so you will not be charged for content you cannot access. 

Follow the instructions in this Help article to cancel.

If you have been banned and would like more information, please visit this link. Be sure to include the words "banned account" in your submission.
