Authorize or Deauthorize Your Device

The devices you use to play Amazon Music must be authorized to your Amazon account, based on our license agreements with content providers. Deauthorize your device if you no longer want to use it, or if you want to authorize the device to another Amazon account.

To authorize your device:

  1. Go to My Music or launch the Amazon Music app on your device.
  2. Sign in using information for your preferred Amazon account.
  3. Start playing or downloading a song or album.
  4. Select Authorize in the pop-up window that opens.

To manage the devices authorized to your Amazon account, go to Your Amazon Music Settings and look for the Manage Your Devices section.

Note:

You can have up to 10 devices authorized to your account. Each device can only be authorized to one account at a time. If there are 10 devices authorized to your account, you can't authorize an additional device until you deauthorize one.

Deauthorize Your Device

You can manage the devices authorized to your Amazon account, from Your Amazon Music Settings in the Manage Your Devices section.

When a device is deauthorized, it takes 30 days for it to be removed from the Your Authorized Devices list. To immediately deauthorize all your devices at once, select Deauthorize All Devices. This can be done once every 365 days.

A device can only be authorized to one Amazon account at a time. You can deauthorize a device and authorize it to another account once every 180 days.

To do this, open Amazon Music for Web or the Amazon Music app, and sign in using the account you want to authorize. Then, try to play or download a title from My Music. If you're using the Amazon Music app for PC and Mac, you can also try uploading a title to My Music.

You are prompted to deauthorize the device from the previous account and authorize it to the new account.
