For MineCraft users, this means they need to be transferred from the existing one account in Mojang, which was bought by Microsoft in 2014 for $ 17,8 billion.

"It simply came to our notice then games will require a Microsoft account to play, including the Minecraft version for Java", States the post on the MineCraft blog.

As mentioned in the FAQ, Mojang stated that the change is for security and protection reasons:

"We decided to move away from the old accounts to better protect them players to increase the overall security of the account and to introduce new security features. Because we can't do this with old-fashioned accounts, we decided to use Microsoft accounts instead of creating new ones from scratch. The biggest added benefit to migrating your account is the option to enable two-factor authentication. We will develop additional features security for the players over time. "

The post notes that enhanced security features include parental controls and "block chats and invitations."

"Once you complete the steps, you will use your Microsoft account to sign in to Minecraft," the post explains. "You will no longer be able to log in using your Mojang account."
