Default Device(Kindle Touch) Not Maintained
« on: March 03, 2018, 05:47:36 AM »
I download books from Amazon's website.  It seems that periodically I have to reset my default device.  The only device i use consistently is my Kindle Touch.  Every so often I will download a book and find that it has gone to the Fire tablet, which I very seldom use.  Then I have to reset the Touch as the default device.

What causes my account to switch default devices?

This is a common problem - a lot of people have reported it happening, including myself - although it hasn't happened to me so often lately. It's more of an irritation than anything else, but as far as I know, no-one has pinpointed the cause.

Anyone?

Thanks!  At least it is not unique to me.

Happens to me too. I figure it's just one of those somewhat irritating technology things, like FaceBook not being able to remember that I want to see the most recent posts rather than the top stories.  ::)  (Who decides what are my top stories anyways?)

I think . . . . . when you have sites set to 'stay logged in' that sometimes they sort of log you out anyway. You know, for your own protection? ::) Or maybe because their servers get reset or something. And that's when things like default kindle on the Zon and FB most recent vs top stories get reset. (Though with FB I can never get it to stick with top stories any more.) Anyway, then when you go back it seems like it opens quick, but that's only because your browser is also smart and knows all the passwords to send.

or not.  Just a thought. :D
