Our goal is to improve information display, make interactions more consistent, support devices such as tablets, and deliver a customizable experience. You will see these improvements and visual updates rolled out across our services over the coming months. For a summary of changes, see What’s New in the AWS Console.
Q: Can I provide feedback?
Yes! Click the Feedback button at the bottom of the console. We’re eager to hear about your experience with the new console.
The app supports viewing EC2 instances and CloudWatch alarms. You can also see CloudWatch metrics for your EC2 instances, Service Health, and your Account Activity. The mobile app does not support the AWS GovCloud (US) Region. For a full description, see our AWS Console for Android page. We plan to add new features to the mobile app. Tell us what you need using the feedback link in the app.
Q: How do I sign in?
The app supports “Owner” accounts and “User” accounts. An owner account is the AWS login that created the account. The user account is someone that has been created by an administrator through the IAM service. Note that Users need to also provide their account alias, which can be found at the top of the web console sign-in screen.
Q: What does the Cancel button in the sign-in screen do?
Use the Cancel button to reset the sign-in process or to reinitialize the application.
Q: Is MFA supported?
Yes. We recommend using either a hardware MFA device or a virtual MFA on a separate mobile device for the greatest level of account protection.
Q: Can I create resources?
Not in the current version, however we’re considering this for future releases. Please use the feedback screen in the app to tell us what you need.
Q: Can I terminate an EC2 instance?
No. The mobile app currently supports the stop and reboot actions for EC2 instances.
Q: Can I view my current AWS service charges?
Yes, you can view your estimated charges in the app. Simply visit your Account Activity page and click the link to enable monitoring of your AWS charges.
Q: What time period and services does the Service Health section cover?
The Service Health section covers all AWS services in all regions for the previous 36 hours.
Q: What versions of Android are supported?
Q: Does the app support tablets?
The app is currently optimized for Android phones. Tablet users also have the option of using the AWS Management Console via the tablet's web browser.
Q: What Android app permissions are required?
-- Network communication
-- Full internet access (used to contact Amazon Web Services)
-- View network state (used to gracefully handle network loss)
Q: My app is having trouble. What should I do?
From your phone's home screen press the menu and select settings. From the settings options, go to Apps, select AWS Console, and press the "clear data" button. The next time you start the app, the app will reset.
Q: I lost my phone. What should I do?
We strongly recommend that in addition to signing out of the app when you have completed your tasks and using a password lock on your phone, you use an IAM user to manage AWS on your phone. If you lose your phone, you can remove the IAM user's access.
Q: Do you plan to support other mobile platforms?
We plan to support additional mobile platforms this year.
