Frequently Asked Questions
Why can't I see username history anymore?
Mojang have removed the ability to view username history via the offial API due to "safety concerns". To read more about this change on the official Mojang help site, click here: View Announcement
Can I use this website to check a large list of usernames?
This isn't a place to check more than one username in one search, mostly due to rate limit restrictions on the API. If you need to search for lots of usernames at once, consider using a robust API with caching such as Electroid's mojang-api.
Can I "snipe" usernames using this website?
No. This website is only for checking username availability.
A name is shown as available, so why can't I change to it?
Some usernames are subject to a word filter and some are permanently blocked. Unfortunately there is no way to check this without attempting to change it on the Minecraft site. There is also a 37-day cooldown period that applies to recently changed usernames; this may apply to your current search.
Can I view my search history?
You can view a 90-day search history from your current IP address here: /history
Since we don't use user accounts or store personal information, we are unable to provide anything further than this.
Can I have my search history removed?
Search history is not publicly available after it disappears from the main page and contains no personal information, and since an IP address is not considered personal information, there is nothing to be removed. If you still have privacy concerns, feel free to contact me using the email address on the privacy page.
Are there more detailed search statistics available?
There is currently no way to access more detailed statistics. If you would like to request additional data, I may consider releasing it on a case-by-case basis if you drop me an email. contact info →
Can you help with my Minecraft/Mojang account?
We are not affiliated with Mojang or Microsoft, so we are unable to help with account issues.
