Echo & Alexa User Discussions and Support Forums

When a person is not breathing, permanent brain damage begins after 4 minutes and death in 6 minutes after that. Can you count on help arriving before that time? Learning proper CPR techniques is easy and you can learn it in 30 minutes at CPR Test Center.

Please call Amazon and have the representative send a ticket to Amazon protesting this new policy:

I'm so upset about Amazon's update on the alexa app. Now I have to sign in on my ipad everytime I want to use the app, I have a strong Amazom password for protection so it takes effort and time to sign in on the ipad "keyboard." I'll have to make my password easier for sign-in which certainly defeats the security purpose since my Amazon website needs more security than my Alexa app. I feel like dumping my three Echo's in the garbage!

LOL I think it's another Apple problem. You are better off throwing your iPad. Yes I loathe anything Apple.  8)

I have no problems with my Android phone.  The problems I read here from Apple owners mostly happen after update. Nice to know it's not only windows that messes everything up every update.

I have no problem with my iPad and the Alexa app, and I certainly donít have to sign in each time. Not sure whatís going on there.

To OP, why such emotion and drama over this?. I. too, have no issues opening Alexa app within iPhone and iPads. Maybe the new iOS upgrade is the issue  --  I have not installed it yet.  Anyway, once the alexa devices are set up, who needs to use the alexa app very often?

Another Vote for less drama... My iPad is doing fine with the new updates... and the latest update on the Alexa and AMAZON apps... All updated in the last week or so if I remember right... but I check pretty often for updates on everything, so I think maybe you have a settings issue or a User issue going on there...
My Alexa environment includes :
1 Full Sized Echo
3 Echo Dots 2nd gen
2 Echo Dot 3rd gen, One with Clock
1 Echo Spot
Several Hue Lights with a single bridge
5 Fire Tablets (1 as a control panel in Kitchen)
One Ring Doorbell Pro
Also 4 cell phones with Alexa app installed!
