How to delete a profile on Hulu

One of the great benefits of a Hulu subscription is not having to share in the cinematic or televised preferences of your kin and pals. Hulu allows you to add up to six different users under a single account, which means that everyone gets to pick and save their favorite movies and shows without butting in on the content of others. If the time ever comes to eliminate a profile, however, Hulu makes it fairly simple to get rid of a user.

In this step-by-step guide, we’ll teach you how to delete a Hulu profile using your home computer and/or mobile device. Keep in mind that once a profile is deleted, it cannot be retrieved, so make sure you’re committed to removing your in-laws from your account before ousting them to a lesser streaming service.
