You might have to try some fixes for your browser before you get it working correctly. There is a simple solution that can save you if you keep getting logged out. This option is the checkbox that lets you stay signed in.
We’ll show you how to enable this option, as well as give you more solutions to this problem.
Why Does Amazon Keep Asking You to Sign In?
Sometimes, you aren’t actually logged out from Amazon, even though it might seem like it. Amazon asks for your account information so that they can confirm your identity. This issue can occur while you’re making an order, or when you want to change something.
Also, this happens when you meddle with some sensitive account information, and it is a good safety measure. Nowadays, many hackers can steal your personal info online, and losing an Amazon account is no joke.
To keep things as safe as possible, Amazon can ask for verification quite often during important account events.
Keep Me Signed In on Amazon
You’ve surely seen this option, but sometimes, it gets overlooked. When you sign in to your Amazon account, there is an option to keep you signed in. Just click on the checkbox next to this option on the Amazon login page, and the site will remember this.
Then you won’t be logged out until you do it willingly, clicking on the log out button. Your session won’t last indefinitely, though. When this option is enabled, you will be logged about twice a month, approximately every two weeks. Also, you will need to enter your password when changing something on your Amazon account.
This option is not ideal if you share a computer or are prone to accessing public networks, and here is why. If you are sharing your Amazon account with a person you trust, like your significant other, that is fine. However, if you often sign in to your Amazon account on a public network, such as the college campus, library, or shopping mall, your password can easily get stolen, and someone might use your credit card to buy stuff. Keep in mind that people in your household will also have access to your browsing history and possibly see what you’re ordering from Amazon.
It is generally not advised to share your Amazon account with anyone, so don’t keep this option active unless you can trust everyone around you.
