Facing Login Issues with Amazon? Here are Some Quick Fixes

Due to a technical glitch, network problem, or any other reasons, you might face difficulty in signing in to your Amazon account in one go. Do not worry, this can be easily fixed by knowing the reasons for facing the login error and troubleshooting it accordingly. 

Here are some solutions or tips that may help you out with getting rid of login issues with Amazon:

  1. First things first, ensure that you have a working internet and your device is connected to it. To be sure of the required internet connectivity, you can visit some websites on a browser or open any apps on your mobile device and use them for a while. This way you can ensure if you are not able to log in to your Amazon account due to a network glitch or if there is any other problem.
  2. Next, you must check if you are using the correct email address i.e., your Amazon login ID as you might be entering an incorrect email and that could be the reason for getting the login error.
  3. It is also possible that Amazon web or mobile services are down for some reason, hence, you are not able to access your account. To ensure if Amazon is doing fine, go to this link- Amazon Web Services Server Status; you will get to know if you are the only one facing this issue, or every other Amazon user is sailing in the same boat.
  4. If you are not allowed to log in to your Amazon account on a browser, you can switch to the Amazon mobile app and vice-versa.
  5. Entering the wrong password can be one reason you are not allowed to log in to your Amazon account; in that case, you are left with two options- either login by getting an OTP on your phone instead of your password or reset your Amazon password.

To log in through an OTP on your phone, you will need to use the Amazon mobile app, and if you want to reset the password for your account, here are the instructions you need to follow:

  • Go to or open the Amazon mobile app
  • Enter your mobile number or email address linked to your Amazon account.
  • Then on the password screen, click on the ‘Forgot Password’ option 
  • Confirm your email address or mobile number that you have used to create your Amazon account and click on ‘Continue’.
  • Then, you will be asked to enter the One Time Password sent to your email address or phone number; whatever information you have provided there. 


If you can’t access your email address, first you should reset its password and then go on resetting the Amazon account password.

  • Upon entering the code, you will be allowed to create a new password for your Amazon account.
