If I use an email for registering for minecraft.net to buy Minecraft, Will my email address be my username?

For example, if I register using the email address [email protected], will my username be johnapple?

How can I choose my own username?

No, it won't. You will be able to choose the username you want, if it was not already taken.


Your email will not be your username. You will be prompted to enter your Username later.

  • No problem :) Ask anything else if you want.
