Minecraft guide: How to migrate your Mojang account to a Microsoft account

Minecraft developer Mojang recently began encouraging players to migrate their Mojang accounts to Microsoft accounts. The primary reason for this is that Java Edition users will need to migrate to a Microsoft account to gain access to Bedrock Edition in the Minecraft Launcher when the Microsoft PC Bundle releases in 2022 (you can get it early through Xbox Game Pass on Nov. 2, 2021). Another reason why migrating accounts is a good idea is because Microsoft accounts have better security.

The process of migrating accounts sounds like it might be complicated and difficult, but thankfully, it’s actually very quick and simple. In this Minecraft guide, we’ll show you how to migrate your Mojang account to a Microsoft account.

  4. In a separate tab, check your Mojang account email for a code email. Copy the code.
  5. Back on the Minecraft website, paste the code into the box.

  7. You will be prompted to create a Microsoft account. Select Create account.
  8. Fill out your personal information in the fields and select Next on each page.

The migration process is now complete. Note that you’ll now need to use your Microsoft account credentials instead of your Mojang account credentials when signing into the Minecraft Launcher.
