How to use set up multi-user support in tvOS

tvOS 14 has multi-user support, which makes it easy to switch between family members so everyone gets their own personalized entertainment experience.

Users see their unique Up Next list and receive TV and movie recommendations based on their tastes. What’s more, the new Control Center also provides users with quick access to key Apple TV features, including system sleep and audio routing.

Use these steps to add a user.

On your Apple TV set-top box, go to Settings > Users and Accounts > Add New User.

Select Continue, then select Enter New.

Let the new user enter their iTunes Apple ID and password. Then click Sign In.

You can switch between user accounts to access your personal content in the Apple TV app, Apple Music, and the App Store. To do so:

Press and hold Apple TV App/Home on your Siri remote to bring up Control Center. Select the user account you want to switch to.

You can remove a user or leave an Apple TV at any time. Here’s how:

On your Apple TV, go to Settings > Users and Accounts > Current User. Then choose the user account you want to remove. Click [User’s] Account > Remove User from Apple TV.

To leave an Apple TV, in your Home app, turn off Show Me on Apple TV.
