AWS will improve the way you sign in to your AWS account.

Whether you sign in as your account’s root user or an AWS Identity and Access Management (IAM) user, you will be able to sign in from the AWS Management Console’s home page. This means that if you sign in as an IAM user, you will no longer be required to use an account-specific URL. However, the account-specific URL you use to sign in today will continue to work.
