Prime Video Direct uses your Amazon account for sign in. We recommend
that you don’t share your Amazon account information with others as they would also have access to your Prime Video Direct account. If you want to grant another person access to your Prime Video Direct account, use the Invite Users feature. In addition to adding and removing authorized people, you can set the role, or the amount of access, the other person has.
If you're entering Japanese characters during account setup on videodirect.amazon.com, this isn't currently supported. You will see the error, “We couldn’t process the text you just entered. Please make sure there are no unintended characters, and try again.”
