How to change the device name of your Amazon Fire TV or Fire TV Stick

If you’re like me and have multiple Amazon Fire TVs and/or Fire TV Sticks, the default device names assigned by Amazon can start to get confusing. When purchasing a new app or managing your device from Amazon’s website, it’s nice to have a descriptive name to make it easy to determine which device you’re modifying. This guide will show you how to change those device names.

  1. View your device’s current name by navigating to Settings > System > About.
  2. Open Amazon’s “Manage Your Content and Devices” page by following this link.
    (If the link doesn’t work, you can find the page by selecting the “Your Android Apps & Devices” link under the “Your Account” menu on Amazon’s Homepage. Then select “Your Devices” from the navigation menu on the left.)
  3. Select the device you want to rename.
  4. Click the small “Edit” link next to the device name.
  5. Enter the new name and click “Save”.
