Do my HBO Max profiles and settings transfer?

Your HBO Max profiles, watch history, and your settings (including parental controls) are available in Max.

There are two things that don't transfer to Max:

  • HBO Max downloads: You'll need to download your shows and movies again with Max.
  • Custom profile pictures: If you had a custom profile picture in HBO Max, you'll see a generic profile icon in Max (Max doesn't support custom profile photos). If you'd like to choose a different profile avatar, go to Add and manage Max profiles.

You can add a Profile PIN to any Adult profile to keep other people in your household from using your profile (e.g., prevent your kids from accessing your profile). For more info, go to Add a Profile PIN.

Each of your profiles has a My Stuff area with your Continue Watching list and My List.
