If that’s the case then you will be glad to hear that in this article we are also going to talk about this issue.
It is because I saw many people out there who are asking this question but the problem is there is no suitable guide available for this. In this way, I start searching for this and found several other questions that many people are asking but no one still knows the actual answer or the one who answers is very confusing.
This is why I then collected different question related to deregistering Fire Stick like can I re-register it again or will it delete my content or apps? These are a few questions that have been asked but no one is providing a proper answer but after reading this article I am sure you will understand everything.
However, in case, you don’t want to miss any information here then don’t forget to keep reading this article until the very end. I will be providing you with these answers and will also share a method to deregister the account. So, if you miss anything here this may still create some confusions in your mind.
If I Deregister My Firestick Can I Re-register It
Before we moving towards the method to deregister Firestick there is a question that should be answered first. Like many people wanted to know If I deregister my Firestick can I re-register it again? This is a simple and easy question and the answer is Yes you can re-register with another Amazon account if you are deregistered with the old one.
Now if you are still confused then let me tell you something which will clear every confusion from your mind. Since the Fire TV Stick is made by the Amazon which comes registered when you purchase it online. Because they use your account details and register the device with the account you used to order it.
However, if you purchase it from any local store then this is completely different because it won’t be registered automatically. In this way, you will be required to sign in with the account or create a new one. Although if you don’t use the account then you won’t be able to use this device either.
Fire TV Stick uses the account which helps to download the apps from the Amazon Store, helps in-app purchasing, or is used to provide Prime Video. This is how you can simply re-register Firestick even after you de-register it with the old account because you will be forced to sign in or either Firestick will be useless.
Does Deregistering Amazon Firestick Delete Content
Now coming to the next question that could be confusing for many people which is does deregistering Amazon delete content too? Well, this answer is quite simple which is No deregistering Firestick won’t delete anything from the account whether it is downloaded apps or downloaded movies, music.
It is because de-registering Firestick doesn’t mean you are factory resetting it and this way all content will remain on your device but cannot be used until you sign in again. However, there is something that you need to know as if you deregister Fire TV Stick and register it with the new account.
Then it will remove all login credentials from the apps that you are using like Hulu, Netflix and some others. It is just for the security which is a really awesome feature and I loved it. In this way, if you are giving your device to your friend but don’t want to share the Netflix account then just deregister device and then it will ask him/her to use their account.
