    This is literally driving me crazy; you can't imagine how much time I've put into this before deciding
    on bothering you folks with this.

    From my desktop pc, when I open up Amazon, it asks me for a Password.
    This is fine, and exactly what i want.

    But, when i open up Amazon from my iPhone, it "automatically" starts without asking for a password.
    This is bad, and scary, as I worry about losing the phone and someone have a great time ordering items.

    I've looked at just about every menu in the Amazon site on how to change this such
    that it always asks for a password, but no luck.

    I also looked at all the Password and Secuity items in \Settings on the iPhone, but no luck either.

    Have I looked everywhere; might it be a Browser (I use Safari/Firefox) setting ?

    Nothing seems to do it.
    There does not seem to be a simple check box with something along the lines of: "check box to have
    Amazon request a log-in Password each time"

    How do I do it, please ?

    Don’t you have your iPhone password protected? Worrying about amazon orders seems to be the minor point than

    You can also delete under settings > passwords & accounts

    It should be asking you to verify by touchid or faceid

    You should have your phone protected by passcode touch/face ID then its a non issue. But if you don't, make sure you log out of amazon every time you use it and make sure your phone isn't storing your password.

    The thread title caught my eye as it’s an issue I’ve been having and wonder if it’s just me.

    I sign into my Amazon.co.uk account on my iMac, I know the password so no trouble at all. I then do the same on my phone (iOS 12 Safari), again no problem. Now when I try signing in from my iPad Pro (iOS 12 Safari), it says my password is wrong. I’m 100% certain that it’s not, after all I’ve just used it on two other devices - none of them left signed in.

    Has anybody else experienced this?

    In the middle of several books.
    When using the Amazon app, it should ask you for your password as well as a one-time passcode, unless you have ticked the box to trust the device each time.

    Look in keychain to make sure all of the Amazon logins are accurate. If you aren't using the app, try that. It works much better than the website access.

    a. My Keychain doesn't seem to show the amazon log in password.
    Shouldn't it, as I don't have to enter it each time (my problem I'm asking about) ?

    b. How do I officially log-out of the amazon App.
    I can go elsewhere on the iPhone, but my guess is that I'm not officially logged out.

    Go to settings > password and accounts > auto fill password and turn it off

    I’m not using the app as I find it more convenient to use one app, Safari, to access everything instead of lots of different ones. (Besides how would you have multiple pages/tabs open within the app, is it even possible?)

    My Amazon password isn’t stored in my keychain as I always enter it myself and don’t save it. The iPad used to sign into Amazon, now it doesn’t and I’ve no idea why not. There is no two factor authentication on the account, as can be proved by signing in on other devices, and the iPad isn’t new, it’s been signing into Amazon for over a year. Maybe one day it will just start working again, in the meantime I can use the iMac or phone, it’s just a weird anomaly that I wondered if anyone else has experienced.
