What is Launcher Fenix for Minecraft?

The LauncherFenix is one of the most downloaded and installed within the Minecraft community due to its ease of use and simplicity, which offers a number of very useful features to be able to play in a Non-Premium and even Premium way, it also adds a type of use that they call “LauncherFenix”.

There’s even a little confusion about the name, many minecrafters look for it as “yofenix”, but that’s not really the correct name of the program, it’s the name of the administrator user of the also called “launcherfenix”. So you know, don’t look for yofenix, because there is no such program.
