Can I link my Mojang account to my Microsoft account?

Answered by Tom Adger

Unfortunately, at this time, it is not possible to directly link your Mojang account to your Microsoft account. These are two separate accounts that serve different purposes.

Mojang is the company that developed and owns the immensely popular game Minecraft. When you create a Mojang account, it is specifically for accessing and managing your Minecraft game. This account is used to purchase the game, access online multiplayer, and customize your Minecraft experience.

On the other hand, Microsoft accounts are used for a wide range of Microsoft services, such as email, Xbox Live, Skype, and Windows 10 devices. These accounts provide access to various Microsoft products and services, but they are not directly linked to Mojang or Minecraft.

While it may be convenient to have all your accounts linked together, Mojang and Microsoft have not implemented a feature to directly link these accounts. Therefore, if you want to purchase Minecraft or manage your Minecraft account, you will need to create a separate account on the Mojang website.

However, you can use the same email address that you use for your Microsoft account to sign up for a Mojang account. This way, you can easily remember your login details and keep your accounts organized. Just keep in mind that the Mojang account and the Microsoft account are still separate entities.

To create a Mojang account, you can visit the official Mojang website and follow the registration process. It typically involves providing an email address, username, and password. Once you have successfully created your Mojang account, you can use it to purchase Minecraft and access all the features associated with the game.

While you cannot directly link your Mojang account to your Microsoft account, you can use the same email address for both accounts to make it easier to remember your login details. However, it is important to note that a Mojang account is specifically for Minecraft, while a Microsoft account is used for various Microsoft services.
