DETAILED INFO

Learn about subaccounts

A subaccount is a Member ID email address set up under the account owner's primary Member ID. Only the account owner can create and manage subaccounts. For example, the account owner would have a primary Member ID email and their spouse or children would have subaccount Member ID emails.
  • You can have up to 20 subaccounts under your primary Member ID email. Only 10 can be active at one time.
  • You can't delete subaccounts, but you can disable them.
  • Subaccount users can manage phone features, get product support, and chat with an agent.
  • The Member ID email for a subaccount won't appear on the bill.
  • You're required to complete a few extra steps if you create a subaccount for a child under the age of 13.
