Adding multiple profiles to Kodi

Hello again everyone, thanks for checking out this Adding multiple profiles to Kodi guide   .

This Adding multiple profiles to Kodi guide is perfect if there are multiple users of Kodi on one device. For example if you have kids, you can customize a profile so it has only got kids add-ons and a nice cartoon wallpaper.

Meanwhile you can have your own profile with a badass wallpaper and add-ons all of your own. The profiles can even be password protected if you wish to do so.

 

Right, let’s get this show on the road, launch Kodi and go to,

 

  • System
  • Profiles

 

 Once you are here on “Login” move on to the right and make sure to click the “login screen” button so it’s blue which means it’s enabled.

1

 

Now back on the left click “Profiles” and now you can see “master user” and “add profile”

 2

 

Go ahead and click “add profile” and then type in whatever you want to call the profile and click done.

 3

 

You will now see the below “browse for folder” screen, just move right and click “OK”

 4

 

 You can give the profile a picture by clicking “Profile picture”

5

 

Now find where you have your pictures stored on the device and just simple click the picture then click “OK” on the right and that is now set

6

 

If you want to password protect a profile click “Lock references” and it will ask you to set a password for the master account 1st so click “yes” then click “master lock disabled” and it will give you the options of password formats you can use so choose one and create your password for the master account and then click “OK”

7

 

Then you will be here so click “Profile lock” as now we are creating the password for the profile we have just created, again it will ask you to choose a password format so just repeat the process you did for the master account and set a password. The password for this profile can be the same as the master account if you want it to be.

Once you’ve set the password and are back on the below screen just click “OK”

9

 

Now click “copy default” then another box will pop up just go ahead and click “copy default” again.
