How to change your Amazon Password

As the popularity of Amazon increases, we should all assume the attacks against our Amazon accounts will grow as well. With that in mind, today I changed my Amazon account password and decided to pass on the steps – more as a reminder than anything.

After you’ve logged into your Amazon account, click the down arrow under Your Account and click Your Account.

Change Amazon Password - Click Your Account

Scroll down to Settings and Click Login and Security Settings > Password > Edit


Choose a strong password

OK slow down partner! Before you choose a new password, please please please read this groovyPost article where I cover you can remember. A weak password is about as good as no password at all. Amazon only requires a six character password, so it’s important you read my article first and come up with a good quality password for both Amazon and other online accounts.

Ready? Do you have a strong password or passphrase in mind? Perfect, enter your current password along with your new uber, super strong password and click Save change!


Questions? Problems? Come up with a great new password? Share it in the comments and join the discussion!

Just kidding!  😉

      Yeah you bet. This is a quick one but a good reminder to keep all your PW’s changed regularly.

      Oh – and never use the same password on two websites. That’s a tip I should have included.

      Have a great long weekend!

    It is a pity that there is no two factor authentication..
