In the gaming world, there is hardly anyone who does not hear the name of Minecraft. It is a very popular & addictive game. As of August 2021, there are over 141 million active players worldwide. It is the 6th most popular game on Twitch, and over 31.5k viewers are watching the streams of Minecraft every day.

Minecraft is known for its freedom to explore and build. Like every popular game, Minecraft also has mods. If you don’t know what mods (modifications) are, then mods are tweaks or graphics overhauls made by players to improve overall gameplay quality. 

Technic Launcher (also known as Technicpack) is a huge third-party library of Minecraft mods. Many Minecraft veterans use this library to enhance the overall gameplay quality.

The main question that comes to mind for every beginner is is whether Technic Launcher is safe to install. Due to the popularity of this topic, we’ve written this ultimate article to clear your all doubts.

What is Technic Launcher?

Technic Launcher is an open-source tool that functions in tandem with the famous game Minecraft. Once you’ve downloaded and run the launcher, you’ll have in-game access to the Technic Platform, a collection of Minecraft mods.

The program’s main advantages are its simplicity and time-saving feature since you can browse for a mod you want and click to install it without searching for or installing anything yourself. The site has also been enhanced with social integration to keep you in touch with other participants.

Is Technic Launcher safe, or does it have a virus?

Yes, Technic Launcher is totally safe to use given you have downloaded it from the official website.

If you download from any other sources, they may contain viruses or malware. So, you should be careful before downloading and installing the launcher. Still, I would highly suggest using a premium anti-virus to prevent attacks from ever happening.

The ultimate decision of using the launcher depends on the player, but it is a safe mod for Minecraft created by a team of well-known developers and designers.

For veteran players

If you have experience reading code and exploring other Minecraft mods, it should not be a problem for you to use it. If there is malware or viruses, then you could easily detect them.

There is nothing to worry about as the launcher is being used worldwide by many veteran players. Players will be notified if a breach ever happens.

For novice players

If you are a novice and don’t have any knowledge or experience in coding, I would highly suggest you refrain from installing now. 

If you were to get hacked, you would not be able to notice the attack. So, the suggestion is to stick with the official Microsoft launcher.

Technic launcher is illegal to use in Minecraft because goes against Minecraft’s terms of use and is considered a form of piracy. If you live in a region where the application of piracy rules is strict, then I would suggest not using it.

There are consequences for using Minecraft Technic launcher too. When you use it, it bypasses the original Minecraft launcher. As a result, you might be sued by Microsoft too. So, I would suggest using the official launcher from Microsoft. 

Why does Technic need my Mojang account?

Technic requires you to log into your Mojang account so that you can access Minecraft and the multiplayer servers. The credentials are sent to the Mojang servers to authenticate the user and log them into their Minecraft account.

As per the developers, Technic will never send your login credentials to their own servers or store them. 

Can I trust the Technic launcher?

The decision is totally up to you. If you are in for mods, then you can trust it. Moreover, a huge community is using the launcher. So, I don’t see any reason to distrust it. They have assured users of some clearances.

In addition, the devs assured us that they will ONLY send the users’ credentials to the Mojang server.

Does Technic Launcher still work?

The Technic Launcher still works like a charm, although the last update occurred around 7 years ago. You can install it on Minecraft and enjoy using a range of amazing mod packs.
