Do I Need A Prime Video PIN?

While everyone can set a PIN on their Prime Video account, this won’t do much to protect your account if you live in an area where a lot of people and/or other hackers have access to PIN numbers.

There can be problems if multiple users are on a single account. For instance, if one user is playing a game, and another is just in an IM conversation and they each make purchases, the user won’t get a new code.

Kids can’t get to the PIN screen without you, so you’ll always know just how much time they’ve spent on their screens and whether they’re following the rules.

Where Do I Find My Amazon Prime Video PIN?

Prime Video was launched in over 190 countries, which means you can access it in all of them.

It’s in the Parental Controls page. If you have your mobile device, you’ll find it through the “Settings” menu.

Once you’ve pressed the red button, you will then unlock the Prime Video app and it will begin downloading your subscription video.

You can also change the PIN to the same number you use to control your Prime Video and/or Prime Music accounts.

You can also use separate, different PINs for Prime Video and Prime Music accounts.

Can You Put A PIN On A Prime Video Profile?

At the moment, it is not possible to restrict a profile to a specific child/adolescent. This means that children/adolescents can still access the profile if their parents allow them to.

Since Netflix does not censor their kids’ programming, they are at risk of allowing them to learn about sex, drugs, and violence that may not be appropriate for them.

If you forgot your Amazon Prime Video PIN and need to cancel it, don’t worry! Amazon makes it easy to change it.

Fortunately, you don’t have to know your Amazon password to set a new PIN. You just need to know your Amazon account.

With that, you can log in to Prime Video and change your PIN if you need to. And any new PIN changes you make will apply to your other devices.

How Do I Turn Off A Prime Video PIN?

To disable Parental Controls, click the button next to the Parental Controls bar and uncheck the boxes next to all of the categories that you want to allow.

While the restrictions are there, the default setting for the highest maturity rating is 15+, so you’ll probably be fine without selecting 18+.

Now that the restrictions are removed, you can start watching your favourite movies and shows again.

What Do I Do If My Prime Video PIN Is Not Working?

The error code you are seeing might be caused by an error in your PIN, try entering your PIN again.

If you want to keep your account private and private data secure, you will need to update your phone’s PIN and screen lock.
