Error: Bad login

A bad login error is sometimes encountered when trying to connect to a multiplayer server. Because it happens after you've already logged into Minecraft, it is not related to your account login. This error can happen for a few reasons, but it's usually related to a problem in communication between your computer/network and the server that you are trying to connect to.

Possible solutions are:
  • Check that your network connection is enabled, and that no programs are blocking outgoing connections.
  • Try disabling any existing firewall program, or changing its configuration options.
  • Restart your modem/router.

It is also possible that this can occur when the Mojang servers are having difficulties processing requests. If you have tried the above solutions, please wait a bit and try your server login again later.

If issues continue, you may want to contact your network and/or server administrator.
