This question already has an answer here:

I logged in at minecraft.net and I opened my Minecraft launcher. After I logged in, it said "login failed". I am sure the username and password is correct but it says "login failed". Why?

There area few things that could be causing this:

  1. Your Internet connection is faulty.

  2. One or more of Minecraft's servers is down. You can check by clicking here or by clicking here.

  3. You are not logging in with your Mojang account. When you make a Minecraft account, you are actually making a Mojang account, and buying Minecraft for the Mojang account. Make sure you use your Mojang username to log in. Your Mojang username should be an E-mail address.

    Example:

    Username: JohnSmith@gmail.com
    Password: SecretPassword

    not

    Username: JohnTheMinecraftDude
    Password: SecretPassword

  4. You are not premium. Did you pay for Minecraft?

It is either your internet connection or Mojang's servers. Try again after a few hours.
