Changing your username in Minecraft is an incredibly simple process! We'll walk through the process in just a few short steps:

Note: This process only applies for the Java Edition of Minecraft

Picking a username
All Minecraft usernames need to abide by the following rules set by Mojang:
- Your name must be between 3-16 characters
- You cannot use spaces or any special characters within your username (with the exemption of`_` however!)
- You can only change your username once every 30 days

Changing your username

Now that you have picked a new username, proceed with the following steps:

Login to the Minecraft website with your account and navigate to your profile page
Scroll to the bottom of the page and find Profile Information
Next to your current username, click Change
Enter your new username, and press the Change Profile Name



After your name has been changed, please note that you may need to completely close out of your game, and launch it again in order to see the update.
