How to Add and Manage Amazon Prime Video Profiles

Just like Netflix, Amazon Prime now has a profile feature so that every person on the account can have their separate feed. You no longer need to worry about weird recommendations and lost saved shows. You can share your Amazon Prime subscription now with 5 other people and enjoy binge-watching. But first, you need to learn how to add and manage Amazon Prime Video profiles.

How to Add New Profile in Amazon Prime Video

No longer your recommendations would be affected due to your friend’s watch history. With the separate profile feature, each one of your friends will enjoy their own personalized feed. You can now create up to 6 profiles and along with Kid’s profiles. From a single account, up to 3 users can stream videos at the same time. Prime Video also remembers your profile from which you last logged in and opens it for you.

  • Open the Amazon Prime Video website on your browser and tap on the ‘profile’ icon at the top of your screen.
  • From the dropdown menu, click on the ‘Add New’ option.
