Multiple profiles for Amazon Prime Video on iPad

Amazon Prime Video finally supports profiles. Just like Netflix, you can now easily share your Prime Video subscription with five other users, keeping your feed clutter-free. Here’s how to add and manage profiles in Amazon Prime Video.

How to Add New Profile in Amazon Prime Video

One of the biggest annoyances of sharing your Prime Video account with someone was the fact that all their watch history would start to affect your recommendations. Now, with separate profiles, that issue is gone.

Amazon Prime Video lets you create up to six profiles, and it supports kids’ profiles as well. Up to three users can stream video at the same time from a single account.

Unlike Netflix, Prime Video remembers the profile you were using the last time you logged in and opens it directly on your next visit.

Create Profiles from the Desktop Website

To create a new profile, open the Prime Video website in your browser and click on the Profile icon.

Tap on Prime Video profile

Here, click on the “Add New” button.

Click on Add New

Give the profile a name (check the kid’s option if it’s a profile for a child) and then click on the “Save Changes” button.

Click on Save Changes

Now, to switch between profiles, go back to the top toolbar, click on the current profile, and select a different one.

Using this method, you can delete all profiles other than the main account holder’s profile.
