Is there a way to change the email associated with your Minecraft account? I had a friend set up my account but he registered it to his email, and I need it registered to mine. I know I can change the email associated with my forums account, but I want my actual Minecraft one changed.

Register or log in to remove.

Sorry bud but I don't think Mojang will change your email. Most likely for security reasons because you have literally NO PROOF that you are the real owner of the account. For all they know you could be trying to steal someone's minecraft account.

Actually if you go to minecraft.net and go to the support site... It says very clearly.. No. You cannot change it.
Did your world disappear from minecraft? Is it corrupt? Lags? Can't move? "Saving Chunks" Crash? Crashes when you open chests? It can be saved!

wannabedeveloper, you can indeed prove that it is my account by sending my friend who made it a confirmation email asking if it's okay to change the email associated with it. If he accepts, then it proves that it's okay.

Most of the people I've seen requesting an email change are doing so because their current email has been 'hacked'. So in that scenario, it would mean the person controlling your email account could transfer your Minecraft account to another email, and there would be nothing you could do even if you recovered your email account.

There isn't really any secure, non-exploitable way to implement an email change without Mojang storing more information about its users, at the moment as far as I know they have a login, password, email address and transaction ID.

They only way to change the email address on with your Minecraft account is to hack into their user database and change it. Which is sadly what someone did to me and now i am unable to recover my account.
