How can I add my son to my Audible Account?

When I had primes he was on it but I just found out Once the Prime Ended ALL of the apps Vanish from his PC Not sure what Prime had to do with him being on the accounts. What he needs on his PC is Music, Movies & Audible Mgr

I looked under Audible which said I could add him IF he had his own account or as a child IF I Pay the FreeTime fees But I don't see any other ways.

in advance

Barbara, I'm going to ask the obvious. Why not just tell him your email and password so he can sign in with your credentials?

Can you not add him to your family library? That's what it's there for. He will need a compatible device though. A $50 Fire tablet will work. He will also need to open a Amazon account but it's free to do so. The family library allows one extra adult account. I have my hubby on mine and no you don't need Prime.

That would be dishonest, and a breach of Audible's terms of use.

My sister has an Iphone and I put the Audible app on it and logged in so she can listen to my books. She's my sister and I trust her implicitly, to the extent that I have some money in her name, but I won't give her any of my passwords because that can breed distrust. The Audible app on the Iphone doesn't allow making purchases.

As for that being dishonest and against Audible's TOS, I called them and asked if that was okay before I did it and I was told it was fine. I value my connection with Amazon. I depend on them and I don't want to do anything to risk it.

At the time that I did this I had hundreds of audiobooks in the account connected to Amazon. Since then i've bought probably a hundred more books with large discounts because I've also bought the Kindle book. I get the audiobook also if it's one I think my sister will enjoy.

Sharing books with family is not dishonest. It's simple decency. Amazon and Audible recognize that to the extent that publishers allow them to.

You can share Audible books with other members of an "Amazon Household" only, with the restrictions that that carries with it.

I suspect that is not completely true. Here is what Audible says about multiple devices
================================
My family has multiple Audible accounts, can I listen to their audiobooks on my Alexa device?

Absolutely! To switch Amazon/Audible accounts, say "[Wake Word], switch accounts" for Echo, Echo Dot and Echo Show. If using the Amazon Tap, simply press the microphone button and say "Switch accounts."

Note: The account being switched to must also be an Amazon account or an Audible account that uses an email address. If you sign into Audible with a username (e.g. John123) you would need to merge that account to an Amazon account in order to listen to those audiobooks.
========================================

It appears that Audible is fine with the idea of sharing accounts as long as you don't go over the number of device limits and you are good with letting that other person know your email and password. I maintain two different accounts, one for myself and one for my niece and nephew. Two different email addresses, but I'm the one who pays for both of them.

Switching accounts is not the same thing as sharing audiobooks between accounts, which is what I was referring to. Obviously you could set up a dozen different accounts, should you so desire, and switch between them. That doesn’t make it OK, though, to give the login credentials for an account to all and sundry.
