How to Share Amazon Prime Videos with Family

Written by Ashley Rowell

As more and more streaming services raise their prices, you may have to pay more when you want to watch your favorite shows. Also, Netflix is starting to have stricter account restrictions such as password sharing and so on. That means you can no longer share the same account with other members of your family or your friends by sharing passwords. While Amazon Video has yet to release such restrictive initiatives, if you’re sharing your account with someone who doesn’t live with you, Amazon could potentially cut you off, since it’s not strictly allowed. So how do you share Amazon videos with family members who don't live together?
