How to get rid of Minecraft realms error 403?


Fix 1: Check your login credentials

The username and password that you’re entering for your Minecraft account should be properly entered without any mistakes.

This means that you should take care of the lowercase and uppercase lettering of the user name as well as the password, and you should also take care of the special characters that you add to the password.

We can understand that in this digital age, you have many passwords to remember, and sometimes you might forget the important passwords.

In this case, you should click on the forgot password link and ask for the reset of the password, instead of entering the wrong credentials again and again as this can lead to suspicious activity marking on your account leading to a ban on your account.

Reset the credentials and then enter them to try to log in again. If this was the issue then it will be cleared and you will be granted the authorization to enter the Minecraft realm.

For this, you can contact the player forums for Minecraft on different platforms like Reddit, Facebook, Tumblr, Twitter, etc. Usually when the server is down then the players have an active discussion about it and you are informed about the server outage.
