Much of my time has been wasted trying to figure out how to change Amazon Prime Video accounts from the Roku app. So I thought I’d write this post up to save others the trip.
Switching Family Profiles
If you’re just looking to switch to a different family profile under the Amazon Prime Video account, select the person icon in the upper-left corner of the Home screen.
Signing Completely Out
- From the Home screen, select “Settings” > “Sign out“.
- On the prompt asking if you’re sure you want to sign out of Prime Video, select “Sign out“.
- You’ll be prompted again for it you want to sign out. Select “OK”
- Now from the Home screen, choose “Sign in“, and proceed with logging in with a different account.
Signing Out of Older Versions
It would be wonderful to add multiple accounts, but the older app only allows you to use one account at a time. If you want to switch accounts, the only way is to unregister the device. Here’s how.
- Open the Amazon Instant Video app.
- Choose the “Help & Settings” option.
- Select “Unregister Device”.
- Select “Unregister”.
- Press “Home”.
- Open the Amazon Instant Video app again. You will be prompted to login. Use the credentials for the Amazon account you wish to use.
Once signed in, your Roku is now ready to use with the new account.
