How to Sign Out of Amazon Kindle App Tutorial



How to Sign Out of the Kindle App

Three Methods:

Kindle’s mobile apps for iPhone/iPad and Android do not have a “Sign Out” or “Logout” button. Instead, users must “Deregister” their device. Deregistering your device disconnects it from your Amazon account—you will no longer be able to make purchases through this account or view content purchased through this account. Once you’ve deregistered your device (the best equivalent to logging out), you can sign in and register the device with a different account or the same account. You can even deregister Android devices through your Amazon account, a feature that will prevent others from accessing your account if your device is ever lost or stolen!

Steps

Deregistering the Kindle App for iPhone/iPad

  1. Launch the Kindle app.You can do this one of two ways:
    • Scroll through your apps pages to locate the Kindle app, which has the black silhouette of a person reading against a blue background.
    • From your home screen, Slide your finger to the right to open your search function. Tap on the search bar, type Kindle in, and tap on the app when it appears in the menu below.
  2. Press the Menu icon.Find this icon (three vertical lines) in the very top, left-hand corner of your screen.
    • If you are using an iPad, skip this step.
