Amazon makes it extremely easy to change your account password. You can do that from both the Amazon site and the mobile app. We’ll show you the steps for both these devices.
On a Windows, Mac, Linux, or Chromebook computer, use the Amazon website to change your account’s password. If you haven’t decided on a password yet, check out our guide on how to create and remember strong passwords.
To get started, open a web browser on your computer and launch the Amazon site. Log in to your account if you aren’t already.
At the top-right corner of the Amazon site, click the “Account & Lists” option.
On the “Your Account” page that opens, select “Login & Security.”
Amazon might ask you to enter your current account password. In this case, click the “Password” field, type your password, and click “Sign-In.”
You’re now on the “Login & Security” page. Here, next to “Password,” click “Edit.”
You’ll see a “Change Password” page. Here, click the “Current Password” field and type your current Amazon account password. Then click the “New Password” field and type the new password you want to use for your account. Click the “Reenter New Password” field and type your new password again.
Lastly, beneath the “Reenter New Password” field, click the “Save Changes” button.
And your Amazon account now uses your newly entered password! If you’re securing accounts, don’t forget it’s also easy to change your Gmail password.
If you shop from your iPhone, iPad, or Android phone, use the Amazon app to change your account password.
Start by launching the Amazon app on your phone. In the bottom bar of the app, tap the user profile icon (the second icon in the row).
You’ll see a “Hello” screen. Here, at the top, tap “Your Account.”
On the “Your Account” page, from under the “Account Settings” section, select “Login & Security.”
Amazon might ask you to type your current password. Enter the password and continue.
On the “Login & Security” screen that opens, next to “Password,” tap “Edit.”
You’ll now see a “Change Password” screen. Here, tap the “Current Password” field and enter your current account password. Tap the “New Password” field and type a new password for your account.
Finally, at the bottom of the “Change Password” section, tap “Save Changes.”
And your Amazon account password is now updated!
In addition to changing your password, there are a few more things you can do to secure your Amazon account.
