Usernames are used to uniquely identify each player, and people will make mistakes or want to introduce a change in their usernames at some point in their lives. Players owning the Java edition of Minecraft are fortunate enough to be given the opportunity to change their in-game usernames once every 30 days. To change a Minecraft username, players will need to access their account page and request a username change. Without further ado, let’s dive into how players can change their usernames.
This can only be accomplished on PC and Mac versions of the games as the usernames on Xbox and Playstation are linked with the respective console usernames and can only be changed once the Gamertag Xbox or Sony PSN ID changes.
How to change your username?
If you have made your account within the last 30 days, you cannot change your name, and you cannot change your name more than once every 30 days. You would also change your name to one that hasn't already been taken by anyone else. Only underscores, letters, and numbers are included in your name, which must be longer than two characters. Minecraft players can change their in-game usernames by changing their Minecraft profile name. Once you understand the limitations, access the official Minecraft website on a web browser. After that, players must log in with their account details.
Players can navigate to the bottom of the web page after signing in and viewing their account profile page. A player's current profile name will be shown, and they can change it by simply clicking the change button.
Players will be asked to provide a new profile name after clicking on update. From here, all a player has to do is choose a new name and click the "change profile name" button. Players' profile names can be successfully updated if the username they chose is unique.
A player may need to log out of the launcher and then log back in after successfully changing their profile name. Players that do not follow these instructions can have difficulty accessing online servers.
Congratulations! You have now learnt how to change your username, but not that you won’t be able to do so for the next 30 days. Make sure to keep this when changing your name, the next time, lest you regret it later.
