How to Change Your Amazon Password

Last updated: January 30, 2017 - 1:14pm EST

It might be a good idea to change your password every once in a while, just to make sure that your account is secure. After all, you probably wouldn't want anyone breaking into an account where they can get your financial details and spend your money without your permission, right?  It will almost never happen if you take some common sense steps to keep your information private, but changing your Amazon password is a precaution that you might want to know about anyway.

How do I change my Amazon password?

  1. Go to and log in.

  2. Move your mouse cursor over Hello, [Your Name]: Your Account in the top-right corner, and click on Your Account in the drop-down menu that appears.

  3. Scroll down to the "Settings" category, and under "Account Settings", click Change Account Settings.

  4. You may be asked to log in again; do so.  When you reach the next screen, click Edit beside the box labelled "Password".

  5. Click in the box labelled "Current Password" and type in the password that you're using for your Amazon account right now.  Then, click in the box labelled "New Password" and type in the password that you want to use for your Amazon account from now on.  Then, click in the box labelled "Re-enter New Password" and type in a copy of the password that you just entered.  (All three passwords will appear as bullet points to keep anyone else from seeing them.)  Finally, click Save Changes.

That's it!  You've successfully changed your password on Amazon!  Be sure to write it down somewhere so that you'll remember it, and keep it in a safe place so that only you know where to find it!
