Amazon makes it extremely easy to change your account password. You can do this from both the Amazon site and the mobile app. We will show you the steps for both of these devices.
Change your account password on the Amazon website
On a Windows, Mac, Linux, or Chromebook computer, use the Amazon website to change your account 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 site Amazon. Log into your account if you are not already.
In the upper right corner of the Amazon site, click on the “Accounts & Lists” option.
On the “Your account” page that opens, select “Login and security”.
Amazon may ask you to enter your current account password. In this case, click on the “Password” field, type in your password and click on “Login”.
You are now on the “Login and Security” page. Here, next to “Password”, click “Change”.
You will see a “Change Password” page. Here, click on the “Current Password” field and type in your current Amazon account password.
