When I tried to change my skin it gave an error. It said "Forbidden" I tried to change my skin many times at different times today but it kept giving the same error.The last time I changed my skin was 2-3 weeks ago. I tried to change 2 different skins thinking the skin might be causing the problem but it didn't work. I also tried to upload the skin using the website. Then I downloaded it and tried again. But still It was saying "forbidden"

- I use the latest version of Minecraft and the skins are compatible with the latest version.

- My internet connection is good.

- I use the PC version of Minecraft but my computer uses Windows 10 and I was able to change skins before.

- I can't reset my skin too, it says "Something went wrong when trying to reset your skin. Please try again later." when I click the reset button.

I was dealing with the same problem and I think I found a solution. Open your Minecraft Launcher on your desktop and at the top of the there should be a tab called "skins". Click that and then click "browse" choose your skin file, then save it.

Forbidden usually means that the server has forcefully blocked you from using a site. One thing I'm missing out on: how did you try to change it? Did you use the launcher or did you go to the website manually?

It could be that the server just glitched out, first start by restarting your game (the launcher). If that doesn't work try firing up a browser and go to the site manually using this link: https://minecraft.net/en-us/profile/. (always be careful with following links to profile pages!, that's why I pasted the full URL).

the server may be down, that happens to me occasionally, wait about 2 days and hopefully it will work
