Whether you’ve changed your phone number or you’d like to use a different number in your account, Amazon makes changing phone numbers in your account as easy as changing your password. We’ll show you how to do this from your desktop and your mobile phone.
When you change the phone number, Amazon sends a verification code to the new number. You need to enter this code on the Amazon site or the Amazon app (whatever you’re using to perform the process) to confirm the number belongs to you.
On your desktop computer, like Windows, Mac, Linux, or Chromebook, use the official Amazon website to make changes to your phone number.
To do that, first, launch a web browser on your computer and open Amazon. Sign in to your account if you haven’t already.
After signing in, in Amazon’s top-right corner, click “Account & Lists.”
On the “Your Account” page, choose “Login & Security.”
On the “Login & Security” page, next to “Mobile Phone Number,” select “Edit.”
You’ll land on a “Change Mobile Number” page. Here, beneath “Mobile Number,” click the drop-down menu and choose your phone’s country code. Then, in the given text box, type your new phone number.
Continue the process by clicking “Continue.”
In the prompt that opens, choose “OK.”
You’ve received a code on your new phone number from Amazon. Note this code and type it in the “Enter OTP” field. Then click “Verify.”
Amazon will ask you to enter your password. Click the “Password” field and type your password. Then select “Save Changes.”
And that’s it. You’ve successfully linked your new phone number to your Amazon account.
