Amazon limits sharing your Prime account

Amazon limits sharing your Prime account
Amazon

Amazon Prime is already one of the best deals online.

For $99 a year, you get free two-day shipping, a massive library of streaming video and music, the Kindle lending library, plus exclusive deals and early access. It's an even better deal when you share the costs and benefits with five or six buddies. But it won't be so easy to do that anymore.

Now, Amazon is limiting the number of people you can share your account with through several new policy changes.

With the new policy, Amazon is only allowing you to share your Prime account with one other person. They will be able to login to their own account, link to yours and get many of the same perks you do as the Prime account holder like shipping benefits, Prime Instant Video (streaming only), Kindle Owners' Lending Library, Prime Early Access and Prime Exclusive Deals.

Of course you can still give out your account information (only to those you trust) and buy things for another person. But besides the one adult you list on your account, all others will not be able to link to your Prime account.

To edit your account sharing settings, log in to your Amazon account. Next, navigate to your Manage Your Content and Devices page. Click on the Settings tab >> Households and Family Library >> select Invite an Adult.

Do have an Amazon Prime account or share it with someone? Tell me how you use Prime and if this will change anything by commenting below.
