If you’ve reached Hulu’s six profile limit and need to create space for someone else (or simply want to take a profile off of your account), you can do so by accessing the service’s settings menu. This article will teach you how to delete a Hulu profile in a web browser, on a mobile device, and on a TV-connected device such as Roku.

When you first sign up for Hulu, a primary profile is created. While you cannot delete your account’s primary profile, you can edit it as needed.

How to Delete a Hulu Profile on Smartphones, Roku, Apple TV and More

You can delete a Hulu profile on most devices that support the app, including smartphones, set-top boxes, game consoles, and more.

On iOS and Android: Launch the Hulu app on your Android or iPhone and tap Account in the bottom-right corner. Tap the name of your account to access the profile menu and select Edit. Tap the name of the profile you’d like to delete, scroll to the bottom and tap Delete Profile.

On TV-Connected Devices (Roku, Smart TV, Apple TV, Game Consoles, Set-Top Boxes, and Streaming Sticks): Since Hulu is available on so many different platforms, you may find the deletion process a bit different depending on which device you use. That said, each platform should follow the same basic steps:

  1. Open Hulu on your device.

  2. Select Manage Account > Profiles.

  3. Select the profile you wish to remove and press OK.

  4. Confirm the deletion by pressing OK again.

Deleting a profile not only deletes all settings associated with that profile but its watch history as well.

  1. Hover over the dropdown menu in the top-right corner and select Account.
