Why Can’t I Log into my Amazon Prime account?
If you’re having trouble logging in, recheck your username and password properly or you may need to reset your password.
Here are some things to check if you’re having trouble logging in
- Email Address: Check your email address if it is in the correct format as firstname.lastname@example.org etc.

- Check your phone number if you created your account with a mobile phone number, Make sure to include your country code in your mobile phone number.
- Password: While typing password check CAPS Lock and NUM Lock on your keyboard. Passwords are case sensitive, so “PASSWORD” and “Password” are different passwords. If you’re sure you’re using the correct email address or mobile phone number, you can try resetting your password.

To reset your password:
