How to create profiles on Amazon Prime Video

If you are more than one person using the same Amazon Prime Video account, creating different profiles is a good idea: here’s how.

Do you have a subscription to Amazon Prime Video but, perhaps within your family, are there many who use it? It may therefore be a good solution to create different profiles, one for each person who uses the subscription. This function can also be very useful if the Amazon Prime Video subscription is also used by children because the Parental Control function can be used.
