Other questions I found that are similar but didn't answer my question:
- How do I make a second minecraft account for my son?
- How to play minecraft against my son with 2 PCs
I want to play Minecraft locally with my son (from two computers), but (a) he doesn't have an email address, (b) I don't want to set up an email account for him (and he's too young for that to be legal in the U.S. anyway). I am fine on paying for two copies of Minecraft but I want to make sure I get it set up right.
I explored the Minecraft site but didn't find an answer to this question.
Can I just install Minecraft on both computers using one single account? Or what should I do in order to play with him without setting up a second email?
I do have more than one email address of my own, but my secondary concern is, when he gets old enough to have/want his own email, I'd like him to be able to retain whatever account access he has (e.g. any worlds he's built) and not have it be dependent on me. So, secondary question: is there any way to ensure he'll have this access in the future, apart from setting up an email address for him now?
