About Amazon Households

Amazon Household allows you to share Amazon benefits with another adult, teens, and children in your household. Both adults share select Prime Benefits, digital content using Family Library, and can manage the profiles of teens and children in the Household. Teens in the household can share select Prime benefits too.

Amazon Household can contain up to ten members:

  • Two adults (ages 18 and over), each with their own Amazon account.
  • Up to four teen profiles (available for ages 13 through 17), which allow teens to have their own Amazon login to shop or stream content while still keeping their parents informed.
  • Up to four child profiles (suggested for ages 12 and under), which can be used on Amazon experiences geared towards children like Amazon FreeTime; child profiles are not enabled to shop on Amazon.

Sharing Prime Benefits

To share Prime benefits and digital content between adults, both adults must link their accounts through Amazon Household and agree to share payment methods. Both adults will keep their own personal account while sharing Prime benefits. To share Prime benefits with your teen, just add the teen to your Amazon Household. For more information on how to do this, go to Create a Teen Login.

For a list of benefits that can be shared with adults and teens in your household, go to Share Your Amazon Prime Benefits. Prime benefits are not shareable with child profiles. Prime Student members, customers who receive shipping benefits from another member, and members with certain discounted Prime offers can’t share their Prime benefits.

Digital Content

You can link two adult Amazon accounts to share eBooks, audiobooks, apps and games on your Amazon devices, and media apps. Please see About Family Library for more information.

Teens are unable to share digital content with others in their Household.

Children can access digital content that their parent allows on their child’s device. Please see Amazon FreeTime for more information.
