Yes we all get brain farts once in a while, so I wrote this post to help you access to your Kindle if you’re having problems remembering your security password.

Kindle Fire

After 4 failed attempts at entering your password, you’ll be asked to restore your Kindle to factory default settings.  Unfortunately, this will delete all content on your Kindle Fire and you’ll need to register it again before downloading items from your Amazon account.  You can then create a new password for your Kindle Fire.


Amazon Kindle Cloud Reader

Did you know that even without owning a Kindle, you can still have access to thousands of books (paid and free)?  In this post I’m going to show you two easy ways to start reading Kindle books using your computer and free apps:

Method 1:  Kindle Cloud Reader

It might sound complicated but the Kindle Cloud Reader is basically the browser in your computer.  Kindle Cloud Reader runs in your web browser but looks and acts just like an app and you can continue reading even if you lose your internet connection.

The Cloud Reader is the easiest way to read Kindle books because it doesn’t requires any Kindle device.
