How to Manage HBO Max Profiles for Children and Adults

While HBO has built its reputation on adult content, its latest streaming service called HBO Max is one of the best streaming services for high-quality children’s content. Create profiles for family members with parental controls to limit access to content.

How to Manage Profiles on HBO Max

Creating separate profiles will allow you to limit content to children, but they are also useful for tracking who watched what and where they last left. To get started, open your HBO Max application or navigate to any browser to HBOMax.com. On the “Who Is Watching” screen, you can add adult or child accounts.

1

If you try to create a child account, you will be asked to create a PIN that will be needed to access the adult profile. At present, HBO Max parental control only consists of this PIN which you can place to limit what content can be accessed by your child’s account based on rank.

2

Next, assign a name to this user and choose one of the colorful rings at the bottom to indicate which profile you have. If you create a children’s account, you will be asked to enter their month and year of birth to provide more accuracy for content restrictions based on HBO Max ranking. Birth dates are not required for adult accounts. When finished, click “Next” to continue.

3

Now you can click on the circle above the appropriate rank to set which movies and televisions your account can access. If you don’t want your child to be able to freely change accounts at their leisure, make sure that the “Require PIN To Switch Profiles” box is checked. Click “Save” to create a profile.

You can find out which profiles are child profiles by having a lock icon on the bottom right of their circle. If the lock is closed, the child’s account requires a PIN to change profiles.

How to Manage Profiles on HBO Max

After you create a user profile on HBO Max, you can always edit it later. To edit an existing profile on HBO Max, you want to change the profile if you are logged in. To access the profile menu, click your name in the upper right of the screen, and select “Change Profile.”

6

Click “Manage Profile” at the bottom of the screen. You can delete a profile from here using the “Delete” button. You cannot delete a profile from the primary account holder. If not, click on a profile to edit it.

7

You can now change the name and icon for the profile. Click “Edit Age and Parental Control” to bring up a content restriction menu. You must enter your PIN before you can access this menu.

Like its competitors Netflix or Hulu, HBO Max provides a user profile so you can easily move inappropriate content from innocent eyeballs, or just separate your taste differences so you don’t see recommendations based on people’s viewing habits.
