Switch account region from Amazon USA to Amazon UK (or vice versa)

Welcome to My Private Network

We provide VPN services with servers in over 44 countries to protect your security and privacy, and allow you to bypass geographic restrictions.

Read more about how our VPN works here.

This page will guide you through switching your Amazon's Account region to one of your choice. Whilst we usually recommend the use of two different email addresses associated with two different Amazon regions, you might prefer to only use one email address for both the Amazon's USA and UK regions.

However, if you're looking to install Amazon's Instant Video app instead, kindly refer to the guide below:

Amazon Instant Video App Installation Guide for Android

Don’t Have a VPN yet? Give our Free Trial a go by clicking the button below for 3 full days of unlimited access to both our VPN and MyTelly services.


To switch your Amazon's account region, follow the steps below.

(This guide will teach you to switch to Amazon USA from Amazon UK but the steps remain the same when switching back)

Step 1: Get Started

Log in to Amazon.com.

Once you've logged in to Amazon.com, hover your mouse over Your Account.

In the drop-down menu that appears, click on Manage your Content and Devices.

Step 2: Manage Your Content And Devices

Click on Settings and look for Country Settings.

At this point, the country should be displayed as United States.

Click on Change and select United Kingdom.

You will be prompted to enter a UK address into the fields below.

Simply enter any random UK address and click on Update.

Note: If you need help finding a random UK address, there's a great resource at Fake Name Generator that may be helpful.

Once you have added the new UK address and saved the changes, you will be prompted with the banner shown in the image below.

Kindly click on Learn more about updating your default Kindle Store to Amazon.co.uk to proceed.

You will now be shown another screen which explains the changes that'll happen to your account if you switch your Amazon account region.

Click on Transfer your Kindle account to Amazon.co.uk to finalise the region change.

You should now notice that you have been automatically switched to Amazon.co.uk as seen in the image below.


Congratulations! You've now successfully switched your Amazon account region to the UK and you'll be able to shop on the UK Amazon store.

Don't forget to use it with My Private Network's VPN and MyTelly services to access your Amazon content where ever you are!
