Migrating from Minecraft to Mojang

Last Updated: Aug 29, 2014 10:51AM CEST
Mojang accounts are the next step in Minecraft accounts, and are your single sign-in resource for all Mojang games. If you log into Minecraft with your username, you can migrate your game to a Mojang account at account.mojang.com/migrateIf you log in with your email address, you already have a Mojang account, and do not need to migrate.


What are the benefits of migrating a Minecraft account to a Mojang account?

  • More features, including Twitch.tv integration and changing your email address
  • All of your Mojang games in one place
  • Use your Minecraft username in other Mojang games
  • More account security, such as security questions
  • Account actions are logged, making it harder to take over an account
  • Username changes, coming later this year!


What changes if I migrate to a Mojang account?

If you migrate a Minecraft account to a Mojang account, you'll now use your email to sign into all Mojang services, including Minecraft, Minecraft.net, Mojang.com and more. Minecraft will become a game profile on your Mojang account, similar to a Scrolls or Cobalt game profile.


I already log in with my email address, but haven't migrated. What's that about?

All new games purchased through Mojang currently use the new accounts system. These accounts are automatically Mojang accounts, so you won't need to migrate.

If you'd like to migrate, and your Minecraft email address is invalid or no longer accessible, you may need to contact customer support. Please visit our article on account migration issues for more information.
