Sign Out vs. Deregister Device on Amazon Prime Video

There is no big difference between signing out and deregistering devices on Amazon Prime Video.

When you ask someone using your Amazon Prime Video account to sign out, the person can always login back into your account using your email address and password. After signing again, Amazon will restore the purchase history and Recently Added titles to your account. This is because your device continues to appear as a registered device with your Prime Video account.

When you deregister a device from your Prime Video account, it will also remove all your data from the device, including your purchase history and watchlist titles. And after logging back in, Amazon will restore all your data and preferences. But after you deregister, the device name will no longer be visible in your Amazon account. You can use this feature, especially when you exceed the maximum devices allowed limit for your account.
