Saving Your Wi-Fi Passwords to Amazon FAQs

1. What's the benefit of saving my Wi-Fi passwords to Amazon?

When you save your Wi-Fi passwords to Amazon, we can help compatible devices connect to the Internet, so that you don’t need to re-enter your Wi-Fi passwords on each device. To learn more, see the Frustration-Free Setup FAQ.

2. Are my Wi-Fi passwords secure?

Once saved to Amazon, your Wi-Fi passwords are sent over a secured connection and are stored in an encrypted file on an Amazon server. Amazon will only use your Wi-Fi passwords with compatible devices associated with your account, and will not share them with any third party without your permission. Amazon handles any information it receives, including your Wi-Fi passwords, in accordance with the Privacy Notice.

3. Can I choose not to save my password to Amazon?

Yes, you can opt out of saving your password to Amazon the first time you enter your Wi-Fi credentials. If you opt out of this feature, your credentials will continue to be stored locally on your device (and/or in its companion app), to allow your device to connect to the Internet.

4. What should I do if I change my Wi-Fi passwords?

You can save your updated Wi-Fi passwords to Amazon by re-running any compatible device through its Wi-Fi setup process. Once reconnected to your Wi-Fi network, your updated Wi-Fi password will be automatically saved to Amazon.
