Creating individual profiles enable you to keep track of all of your favorite shows and movies regardless of what other viewers in your household watch. Each profile created within the same Hulu account will have its own personalized Watchlist, recommendations, and viewing history, allowing everyone to get the most out of their Hulu experience.
You can also create profiles for your kids, where families can go to watch kid-friendly content without worrying about mature shows or movies being recommended to them.
When adding a new profile, you’ll have the option to create it as a Kids profile, which will feature only the family-friendly content found in Hulu Kids.
Our license agreements for our content allow for one stream per account, so you can use your Hulu subscription on as many devices as you please, but you can only stream to one of them at a time.
How to use profiles
We’ll use the name and other information on your account to create the first profile for you automatically. Then, you can create additional profiles – up to 6 in total.
To add a new profile:
On Hulu.com – You can create a new profile from the Profiles menu on your account page or by hovering over the profile name and selecting Add Profile from the drop down menu.
On Hulu.com – Click or hover over the account name to display a list of profiles associated to your account, then select the profile you want to switch to.
On Hulu.com – Visit your account page, select the Profiles tab and then choose the profile you want to edit.
There are two restrictions that you should keep in mind:
You can’t delete your primary account profile.
Deleting is a one-way action! You can’t recover a deleted profile.
To delete a profile:
On Hulu.com – Go to your account page and select the Profiles tab, or click or hover over the account name to display the Profiles option. Then, select the profile you want to delete and in the Edit Profile pop-up window, select Delete Profile and confirm your choice.
You can have up to six total profiles. Hulu uses the name and other personal information on the account to automatically create the first one for you – and then you can create five additional profiles.
While your primary account profile cannot be deleted, you can edit the profile name, gender, and even clear your viewing history if you want to start fresh.
