How to Register a Kindle Device?

The new Kindle that you purchase from your own Amazon account is registered to your account by default. However, if you purchase a Kindle from a different retailer, such as Staples or Best Buy, you may be required to register it with your account!

Open your Kindle device’s “settings” menu to register it. After that, select “Register.” Create a new Amazon account or enter the username and password for your existing account. Next, select “Register.” You can also share the serial number with Amazon customer support to get your device registered.
