So I have a mojang account and suddenly whenever I try to log in to minecraft.net or play the game it won't let me. I get "Oops, unknown username or password. If you are logging in with a Mojang account make sure to use your e-mail address as username." or it just says invalid name/password even though my account still works and I was playing the game last night. What's up?

Register or log in to remove.

I just started having the same problem. I've tried restarting my computer and even reinstalled my game and it still won't let me play it keeps saying invalid username/password combination even though I can log in on the mojang website.

Yes, I have a Mojang account and it's telling me my password/username combo is wrong. My friends without a mojang account don't seem to be having this problem. Is this some sort of mess up on Mojang's end to do with Mojang accounts?

Possibly, yes.

I am having the same problem too.  I was on earlier today just fine, then I just wanted to check in, but it keeps saying "failed login" or "invalid username/password combination" (with Technic Launcher) even though I can log in on the Mojang website.  Re-installing failed to do anything.  It must be some tech issue with Mojang.  I'm just happy I'm not the only one who's having this issue.

I have just tried to use the launcher and it said 'Play offline, cannot connect' even though I had an internet connection. So I went onto Minecraft.net and it says 'Unknown Username/Password' (I have a feeling that Minecraft is being hacked again.)

Calm yourselves. The developers are probably on it already. I am checking Twitter now.

EDIT: I have checked @jebs_ and @notch on Twitter. They haven't posted anything on it. I sent jeb a tweet about it.

Phew, I'm glad to know I'm not the only one with this happening. I guess we'll just have to wait til Mojang gets around to fixing it.

I cannot login to either the client or minecraft.net, however I can get into my account at mojang.com.

Is anyone still having this problem? I was just able to login a few hours ago, but now it keeps saying login failed, but I can log in on mojang.com.

The problem will be gone within at least an hour. If not, you can shoot me :D

Yup I'm having the same problem. Seems to be with only migrated accounts because my alt which isn't migrated works fine.

Thanks for the link! I told you guys it would have taken at least an hour.

Website is back up. Login says 85 minutes left.

I'm having this issue, and I just bought minecraft. Kind of disappointing for this to happen right after purchase. Hopefully it will get fixed soon.

EDIT: The launcher was just fixed. I'm able to get on again.
