The procedure for signing out of Amazon on all devices varies depending on the device you are using. Once logged into your Amazon account, you will remain logged in unless you specifically log out, even if you close an app or turn off a device. If you use a computer or other device that may be shared with other people, it can be critical to properly disconnect Amazon from all devices after each use to protect your information and data.

The process for disconnecting Amazon from other devices varies based on the device you are using and the Amazon service or app you are on. Are you thinking that getting out of Amazon is easy, right?
