Failed to Verify Username Minecraft
Minecraft is a sandbox game developed by Microsoft's Mojang Studios. In the game, players can interact with blocks in a 3D world. Features in the game include exploring the world, collecting resources, synthesizing items, and survival adventures.
The game allows players to run a multiplayer game mode through the server. However, some people report that they have encountered error "Failed to connect to the server. Failed to very username" when logging into the server.
Why does the Minecraft failed to verify username error occur? The most common reasons are as follows:
- The server is down.
- You are running the cracked version.
- Outdated Java and other reasons.
How to Solve Failed to Verify Username Minecraft Error
Fix 1. Log out and Back in
Sometimes, this error may be temporary and many people report that this error disappears after they log out and back in the game. This method is simple that I recommend you to try it first.
- Close your game.
- Log off your account from your launcher.
- You will then be asked to type in your email and password again, please do.
- Once logged in, you can then start your game and join the server.
Fix 2. Check the Server
If the above method doesn't work, please check the server status on Mojang website. If the server is down, what you should do is to wait until the server is back online.
Fix 3. Activate the Cracked Version
The cracked version cannot authenticate with most Minecraft servers. If you are using the cracked version, please activate it.
If the server is online still and you are using the official version, you can then try the following methods.
