Fix: Change your name back!

You should not be changing your name in the launcher_profiles.json. Ever.

If you want to change your name do this:

  1. Go to Minecraft's official website

  2. Log in with your original name (The one you had before you changed it)

  3. Next to your name click on change

  4. Put in your new name, and then your password underneath

  5. Press change!

This will change your name to the new name that you want to use :D


If you have followed the steps above and your name does not change, log in and out of the Minecraft Launcher. It may take some time to process the change
