The Amazon app on your iPhone makes it easy to search for and purchase items. You can also see helpful information that is part of your account, such as the order history and your wish list.
But you can only be signed into one Amazon account at a time, and it’s possible that the one you are using is not the one that you need.
Whether you only have one Amazon account with Amazon Prime, or you need to find something in your order history that’s on a different account, it’s entirely possible that you might need to sign out of your Amazon account on an iPhone.
Luckily this is possible, although the Sign Out option can be a little tough to find the first time you go looking for it.
The steps in this article are going to show you how to sign out of the account to which you are currently signed in on the Amazon iPhone app.
How to Log Out of Amazon on an iPhone
- Open the Amazon app.
- Choose the menu icon at the bottom-right of the screen.
- Select the Settings option.
- Touch the Sign Out button.
- Tap Sign Out to confirm that you wish to sign out of the account.
This article continues below with additional information and pictures for these steps.
How to Sign Out on the Amazon iPhone App
The steps in this article were performed on an iPhone 11 in iOS 13.3.1. Note that you will need to know your Amazon email address and password if you wish to sign back in with the account that you’re signing out of.
Step 1: Tap the Amazon icon.
Step 2: Touch the icon with the three lines at the bottom-right corner of the screen.
Step 3: Select the Settings option from the bottom of the menu.
Step 4: Tap the Sign Out link.
You may need to scroll down a bit, as it’s near the bottom of the menu. There is also a “Switch Accounts” option if you are to alternate between accounts frequently.
Step 5: Touch the Sign Out button again to confirm that you want to sign out.
You should now be able to sign into a different Amazon account on your device if you would like to make purchases from there as well.
Note that signing into an Amazon account for the first time on an iPhone may require a one-time password (OTP) so be sure that you have the phone where that passcode is going to be sent.
The steps above are specifically meant to log you out of Amazon if you are using the Amazon app. If you are signed into Amazon through a browser, then this method won’t work.
You can sign out of Amazon in Safari, Chrome, or any other browser on your iPhone by going to amazon.com, tapping the three lines at the top-left of the screen, then choosing the Sign Out option at the bottom of the menu.
