Why is Amazon asking me to sign in frequently?

In most cases, after you sign in once or twice, Amazon will keep you signed in for an extended period of time. Unfortunately we do not have control over this, and you may be asked to sign in more often.

You can check Amazon orders without signing in at all—just use the new “Amazon - by tracking link” option. If you go to Amazon’s “Your Orders” page in Safari, you can use the Share button and then choose “Add to Deliveries” for a list of shipments you can add. Or you can copy the link of any “Track package” button on the “Your Orders” page and paste it into Deliveries. The “Amazon - by tracking link” option will track a specific shipment, rather than the whole order. In most cases these links are available soon after the order is placed—you don’t have to wait until it ships.

If you’d prefer to track your deliveries by order number, here are some things that may help:

  • Make sure you have Deliveries 8.0 or later for iOS, or Deliveries 3.0 or later for Mac. These updates include important fixes.
  • When you sign in to Amazon, you should see a “keep me signed in” checkbox below the sign in form. Make sure this is checked.
  • If you have multiple Amazon accounts, you can only update orders from one account at a time. You can use the “Amazon - by tracking link” option to track shipments from other accounts.

If you don’t see the “keep me signed in” checkbox, or you’re asked to sign in multiple times a day, use the button below to clear your cookies, then sign in again. (Note: this requires Deliveries 8.0 for iOS or Deliveries 3.0 for Mac.)
