I'm trying to change my Minecraft username. I've logged onto my Mojang account, but can't find where to change my username.

When I log in, it should show me the games by Mojang that I own, as well as my username for them. However, it only shows me "My Gift Codes", and won't let me scroll up or down. I've tried videos, I went to the Mojang help site, and even my best friend isn't having this problem. Any ideas?

  1. Go to account.mojang.com
  2. Sign in to your Mojang account by clicking right next to the Mojang logo on the button where it says "Log In", then enter your email and password.
  3. Under the "My Games" heading, you should see the subheadings: "Game, Since, Profile Name, Download Game"
  4. Under "Profile Name", you should see your username in hypertext next to "(Change)" in parentheses.

It should look like this: SkyDoesMinecraft (Change)

  1. Click on "(Change)" and you should be redirected to a page under which the heading says: "Rename Profile"
  2. From there, enter in your desired new profile name under "New profile name:" in the box that says in very faint text: "Enter Desired Name" and click on the box next to it that says "Check availability".
  3. If the name is available, you will have to enter your password down below under the heading that says "Password" and click the button that says "Change Name". If the name is not available, you will have to either be content with your existing name or come up with another.

CAUTION: you have to wait 30 days before you can change your name again, so choose wisely!

    So that means that you can change your name every 30 days.

  • @Fennekin Yes, you are not allowed to edit the username only for 30 days. In short, you can change usernames once in a month but make sure you are not overdoing it. More info here: geekdashboard.com/change-minecraft-username Jun 25, 2019 at 6:28
