"Failed to login: the authentication servers are currently down for maintenance." error message for months now



  • Yes, I've searched a lot about this question. Some of them tell me to wait, then I waited for a few months. And it didn't work. Some told me to change the Minecraft version, I tried from 1.7.10 to 1.17.1, none of them work. And I turned off my firewall. I tried a lot of things and this problem is still here. (The Minecraft log only shows [time] [Client thread/INFO] [bcx]: Connecting to {}, ...) (Mojang Service status always shows all servers are up.)

    UNTIL I used my old computer to play - that worked! That's very weird! These two computers connect to the same network and router. I have no idea why that worked.

    My OS is: macOS High Sierra 10.13.6 (17G14033).

    Here is a log of 1.7.10 (with Java 1.8.0_321):

  • Old versions of MacOS have some issues with certificate verification for Minecraft- Even if the root cert should be valid. Mojang only supports MacOS 10.14+. Sometimes macOS’s built-in updater breaks, check out this page for upgrade instructions: https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT211683
