If you’ve lost or forgotten the passcode for your Amazon Kindle Paperwhite, don’t worry. In this article, we’ll guide you through the process of resetting your device’s passcode and setting it up again.
Before we proceed, please keep in mind that resetting the passcode will wipe all data from the Kindle Paperwhite. So, if you were previously signed in with your account, you can pull all your books down. However, if someone else was signed in, you’ll need to ask them to sign back in.
To reset the passcode, first, type in a series of numbers: 111222777. Once you’ve done that, click “OK.” This will initiate the process of wiping the device. Please exercise a little bit of patience as it may take a few seconds to get going.
Now, it’s time to set up the Kindle Paperwhite again. Select English as the language and click “Get Started.” Connect to Wi-Fi and enter your password. If you wish, you can deselect “Save password to Amazon” and hide the password while typing it in. Once entered, click “Connect.”
If you already have an existing Amazon account, select “Use existing Amazon account” and enter your email and password. Click “Continue.” You’ll have the option to sign up for a free trial, but you can skip this step by clicking “No, thanks.” You can also set up Bluetooth later.
The device will provide some instructions on how to navigate around, and you’ll be back at the home screen. If you wish to add a new passcode, go to the three dots, click “Settings,” go to “Device Options,” and then “Device Passcode.” Here, you can choose a new passcode for the device.
It’s that simple! We hope you found this article helpful. Remember, setting a secure passcode is important to ensure no unauthorized access to your Kindle Paperwhite.
