I have a 4th generation Apple TV, and listen to Apple Music on my watch (with bluetooth) and my iPhone.

I want to prevent anyone who uses the Apple TV from playing or saving music that changes my "For You" playlist on the TV. (this seems to be a curated list of songs that is based on my past listening history).

How can I separate users on a shared Apple TV? ... or is Apple TV supposed to be used for a single person?

  • Have you tried ensuring that users sign in to their own individual Apple IDs when using the ATV4? – Monomeeth Mar 19 '17 at 2:15

You can set up multiple Apple ID's on the Apple TV and have each user switch every time they use it.

You may opt to create a separate/new account that you leave signed in, so that somebody doesn't accidentally use yours (requiring you to sign in and out of your account every time).

How to add multiple accounts to Apple TV

Before you can use multiple accounts, you need to log into any and all additional accounts you want available.

Launch Settings from your Home screen. Click on Accounts. Click on iTunes and App Store. Click on Add new Apple ID. Enter the additional Apple ID username. Click on Continue. Enter the additional Apple ID password. Click on Sign In.

How to switch between multiple accounts on Apple TV

While you have multiple accounts you can only use one account at a time. That means switching!

Launch Settings from your Home screen. Click on Accounts. Click on iTunes and App Store. Click on the account you want to use.

You'll now be able to download or re-download any apps or content available on that account.

Family Sharing

Multiple accounts work with Family Sharing, so kids can switch to their accounts and "ask to buy" just like on iPhone or iPad.
