Been getting the failed to verify username minecraft error recently?
This annoying bug has been messing with gamers recently, preventing them from loading up servers.
Here are some methods to solve the issue…
Failed To Verify Username Minecraft Error And Effects
Minecraft is the open-world survival blockbuster game released in 2009 in beta form by Swedish developer Notch under Mojang. Although it has been out for almost 14 years now, the game is still very popular, having been bought by Microsoft back in 2016 for 2.5 billion dollars!
But through the constant updates and tweaks that are rolled out monthly, there are always bound to be a few bugs.
A recent error has caused players to be unable to connect to the official servers, as when logging in, the message “failed to verify username” appears.
This prevents players from playing online and accessing their accounts.
Failed To Verify Username Soloutions
But we do have some fixes that mayt just work so here are our soloutions:
- Check Minecraft’s Server Status – Before assuiming you are the problem head on over to the Mojang website to check to see if the servers are up and running.
- Log Out and Log On – The tried and true turn it off and on again method. Simply close the game, log out on the launcher and open it back up again. This may resolve the issue with little to no hassle.
- Update Minecraft – Another simple issue could be that your Minecraft version is just outdated. Simply go to the cog next to your username and click Force Update.
- Update Java – Again same issue as before but to update Java click the Windows log and type Configure Java. Launch it and hover to the Update tab and click on the Update Now If an update is available download it.
- Edit Host Files – It may be that your host files are conflicting with what is on the server. A fix for this is by deleting these entries. Open Notepad and click File > Open. Hover to C: Windows/System32/drivers/etc. Change the file type dropdownto All Files and double-click on the Hosts. Expand the Edit menu and select Find. Search for Minecraft(or Mojang) and delete all the entries. The entries are sometimes located at the bottom and look like website addresses. Save the file and close it then reopen Minecraft
Hopefully one of these methods fixes the issue and gets you back in Minecraft.
