I'm not sure which is weirder - that Minecraft requires the correct date to connect to its server or that somehow my computer date got screwed up.  Regardless, that fixed the problem - thanks!

Yeah Just got home and having this issue.  Also played last night.  And my time is correct, and to make sure I did an update on the online time.

EDIT: Playing around setting my date back 1 day made it so I can login.  Kinda weird.

I have the same issue as BearFather.

I do have another idea though. Minecraft.net's security certificate expired, could that interfere with the login?

Hey Guys, The issue involves mojangs ssl certificate expiring for the their login system, this is not a problem with your date, it is a problem with Mojang, The temporary solution is to set your date to anytime before the 23rd of Jan, this will allow the certificate to think it is not expired on your computer.

EDIT: you just beat me firellius

I don't live in the USA. Change your time to the 23rd and it should work fine.

Haha, I didn't know for sure, I just noticed it when I tried to relog into Minecraft.net. IE warned me about the certificate.

But I know it works normally for some people. I wonder why.

I had the right time and date but when I changed it to the 23rd it worked so that may work for everyone saying they have the right time and date. Thanks!
