I recently downloaded the new 1.6.1 launcher. I tried logging on, but my old password wouldn't work. I went through the change process, and changed my password. But the problem is, that new password won't work either. Was I hacked, or does it take some time for the password to "officially" change?
Edit: I changed it via iPhone. Maybe that has something to do with it
Hey guys, make sure the DATE FORMAT/TIME is set correctly, if not it will give you that message, that helped me!
What date format / time are you referring to?
I am having this problem with the launcher right now on a freshly built laptop. Both of my accounts are saying incorrect password. My date & time are correct, as is the time zone. Both accounts can log in at minecraft.net with no problems.
Is the authentication server broken or something? Doesn't seem like it.
I deleted .minecraft, restarted the launcher, and still have same problem.
UPDATE: Not sure what was wrong. I just rebooted and now it works, so who knows?
I'm sure some of you have probably figured this out, but here's the solution:
I had this problem right after I merged my Minecraft account with my Mojang account. By merging accounts, your email and password for your minecraft account is now your email and password from your Mojang account. So enter your Mojang account info in the launcher and Play! Hope this helped.
**If you did NOT merge accounts, then try merging them, and complete the steps above**
I have the same problem but its the other way around, I cant login to mojang on the internet. I changed my password which worked on the launcher but it still wont work on the website and yes it is a migrated accound and im using the correct email.
