Have you replaced or just got rid of one of Amazon’s Fire TV devices? Struggling to work out how to remove it from the Alexa app? I was. After swapping mine for a rather splendid Apple TV, I thought it would be easy to do. After all, it is for their other own-branded products. Unfortunately, I was wrong.

How it works for other Amazon devices

If you head into the Alexa app, list your devices and then click into the details for say, an Echo Dot, you’ll see this at the bottom…

Click the “Deregister” option and it will remove the Dot from your account. Simple.

How it works for Fire TV

Well, needless to say, for Fire TV, that deregister option is missing. The same goes if you head to the Alexa website.

Instead, you have to do this via your Amazon account.

  1. Go to Your Account -> Manage Your Content and Devices.
  2. Click the “Devices” tab.
  3. A list of your Amazon devices will appear – select the Fire TV icon and a list of all your Fire TV devices will appear.
  4. Click on the Fire TV that you wish to deregister.

  1. Device information will now appear, along with a magic “Deregister” button on the right-hand side. Click on that and follow the prompts to remove the device from your account.

And that’s it! You’ve successfully removed your Fire TV device from the Alexa app, and it only took several more steps than should really be necessary.
