Migrating from Minecraft to Mojang

If you log in with your email address, you already have a Mojang account and do not need to migrate.
 
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?
  • Ability to change your email address and Minecraft username
  • All of your Mojang games in one place
  • Use your Minecraft username for other Mojang games
  • More account security, such as security questions
  • Access to Minecraft Realms
  • Ability to change your Minecraft skin and cape at Minecraft.net
 
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?
If you log in with your email address, that means your account is already a Mojang account. Mojang accounts were introduced in late 2012, so if you created an account after this time, you automatically have a Mojang account and you don't need to migrate.
