HBO Max offers a large library, which includes great content from DC Entertainment, Warner Bros., Cartoon Network, Turner Classic Movies, Crunchyroll, and more. In 2021, it’s also streaming the entirety of Warner Bros.’s theater slate, the day the movies hit theaters. With so much to choose from, it’s a good thing that HBO Max makes it easy to create user profiles to generate recommendations for everyone using the account. (After all, you probably shared the password.) While profiles are a great way to make sure everyone has their own personal experience, there may come a time when you need to give up a profile or two. You can only have five profiles at a time, you know. If you need to do so, here’s how to delete an HBO Max profile.

HBO Max tailors your viewing experience by providing recommendations based on the content you want to watch, while also allowing you to create a personalized watchlist. But what happens if your choices don’t match the tastes of others who share your subscription? Profiles allow you to choose who is using your HBO Max account, creating separate locations and recommendations for each user. In addition to standard adult accounts, you can choose to set up child accounts, which have restrictions on viewing based on ratings of content.
