Minecraft Switch won’t keep me logged in to my Microsoft account

I just bought minecraft for two separate Nintendo switch devices so that my daughter and i could play together. Much to our disappointment, the game will not keep our Microsoft Xbox accounts logged in, so none of our marketplace purchases will sync and we cannot find each other to play a game. 

anybody else figured out how to solve this?

Any luck with this?  Logging in to Minecraft on Switch is completely broken.  We cannot access or realm and the login process is not smooth at all.

Let me know if you find a solution. I too am have the same issue. Every time I close the App I have to go through the authentication process of      accessing the web, entering a code, and logging into the Microsoft account.

You should be able to have the same account on two switch units not sure on how that works with what is considered to be DLC though.  If you are trying to share game saves or have the SAME account logged in on two units at the same time that likely will not work.

Can I link my Nintendo Account to more than one Nintendo Switch console?

You can link your Nintendo Account to multiple consoles. You can play digital games you've purchased on any Nintendo Switch console that has been linked to your Nintendo Account.

Please note that you can register one primary console per Nintendo Account. Once you've registered a primary console, your digital purchases can be played by anyone that uses the primary console. Other players will not be able to access your digital games on a non-primary console.

Can I play my games on more than one system?

You can play digital games that you've purchased with your Nintendo Account on any Nintendo Switch console.

Please note that you can register one primary console per Nintendo Account. Once you've registered a primary console, your digital purchases can be played by anyone that uses the primary console. Other players will not be able to access your digital games on a non-primary console.

Once you've set your primary console, you can change the primary console whenever you'd like through your Nintendo eShop settings.

Physical games can be played on any system you like. Save data for physical and digital titles can be transferred between systems using Save Cloud Data backup (available to Nintendo Switch Online members) or the on-device transfer process.

Can other people play my games on Nintendo Switch?

All user accounts on your primary Nintendo Switch console can play games you’ve purchased with your Nintendo Account.

Hope This Helped.

Same here. If I close the game, I have to relog into my account everytime with a code. Not to mention it says something about using a temporary microsoft account to use your purchases...
