Just like Gmail, Twitter, and Instagram, Amazon lets you add and switch between multiple accounts without the need to sign out. One can switch Amazon accounts both on the Amazon app for iPhone and Android as well as Amazon’s website. The need to switch accounts on Amazon can arise on various occasions. For instance, if you need to manage stuff such as your order history, wishlist, Prime membership, or Kindle subscription for some other account. Or if you want to redeem a gift card on a different Amazon account than the one you’re already logged into.
Whatever the case may be, Amazon customers usually have multiple accounts and they tend to switch between them. This quick guide shows how you can switch between Amazon accounts both on the Amazon app and website.

How to switch accounts on Amazon Prime Video app
If you are looking to add another account in Amazon Prime Video app on your smartphone or Fire TV Stick then that’s not possible. That’s because there is no option to switch accounts since you cannot have multiple accounts on Prime Video.
You can, however, switch profiles on the Prime Video app for Fire TV, iPhone, and Android devices. The app allows users to create and manage up to six user profiles on a single Amazon account.
Here’s how you can add, edit, or delete a profile in the Prime Video app on your iPhone.
- Open Prime Video and tap the “My Stuff” tab at the bottom right.
- Tap your profile picture at the top left.
- Tap New to create a new profile or select Edit to edit and remove an existing Prime Video profile.

- Go to the Prime Video app and open the “My Stuff” tab.
- Tap the gear icon at the top right to get into Settings.
- Select “My Account”.
- Tap the “Sign out” button.
