The Amazon Kindle is a portable e-book device. It features wireless capabilities that allow its users to download e-books, newspapers, magazines and other digital content. In order to download e-books and other content, the Kindle must first be registered with its serial number. The Kindle's serial number is printed on the outside of the Kindle box; if the box is missing, it is also accessible from within the Kindle's "Settings" menu.

Step 1

Turn on your Kindle device and wait for it to power up. Press the "Home" button.

Step 2

Press the "Menu" button. Use the Kindle's five-way controller button to underline the "Settings" item on the screen. Press the controller to enter the "Settings" menu.

Check the bottom of the screen for the serial number. Your Kindle's serial number begins with "B00" and is 16 digits long.
