    Unable to install on my devices; Sign into a device with Microsoft account


    I'm attempting to play Minecraft with my friend. When I look at Minecraft in the Microsoft store, it tells me that I own Minecraft and that I can install it on my devices. However, when I click that option, it tells me that I must first sign into a device with my Microsoft account. I am signed into the same account on my laptop, looking at the page in Google, yet it seemingly does not recognize it as a device.

    :)

    Can't sign in to my device using Microsoft account

    Hi Cressa,

    There are several factors why you're unable to sign in to your account. It can be due to invalid password or your two steps verification was turned on. To isolate your issue, we'd like to gather more information:

    • Have you made any recent changes prior to this issue?
    • Did you get any error messages when you tried to sign in to your computer using your Microsoft Account?
    • Is your two-step verification turned on?

    Meanwhile, we recommend that you follow the steps in this article by clicking on this

    link
    . It will let you reset your password, turned on/off your two step verification, you're using a new device, you're trying to sign in to your computer with a local account, not a Microsoft account.

    Let us know if you need further assistance.

    Hello Flemmingk, Unable to install on my devices; Sign into a device with Microsoft account :)

    Could these other devices be from friends that you may have signed in to your Microsoft account on for something?

    Either way, you can remove these devices.

    Afterwards to be safe, I would recommend to change the password of your Microsoft account, and enable two-step verification if you haven't already.

    Unknown devices on my Microsoft account


    Thanks Brink
    I get different reactions every time I try to delete a device, but the result is that I cannot remove the devices.
    I'll go back to local accounts and delete the Microsoft account.
    I changed to Microsoft account because I wanted to use the Continue on PC feature. This feature doesn't work so I think that I'll just forget about it.
    Thanks for your interest.
