How to Add and Manage Profiles on Discovery Plus

When you want to share your Discovery Plus streaming account with your loved ones or even friends, it is not advisable to give them your account username and password directly. One reason is for your security. Doing so will only add a risk of unwanted access to your account.

Another reason is for you to preserve your customized content library of movies and TV shows on your account. If someone else uses your Discovery Plus primary profile, there will be changes as to the recommended titles and your Continue Watching list.

Instead of sharing your Discovery Plus account details directly, there is a safe and easy way to handle this. Like most streaming service, you can set up and add user profiles to your Discovery+ subscription account. Discovery Plus allows you to create up to five (5) profiles on your account. These profiles will give each user privacy and customized library based on their viewing history.
