You can create profiles in HBO Max to keep your watchlist and stuff separate from other people using the same account. That’s a must-have feature for any streaming services if you ask us, which is why Amazon recently added it to Prime Video too. On this page, we will discuss how to change your profile on HBO Max, and how to select one when logging in.
How to switch to another profile
