Switching Profiles on the Peloton App

If you don’t know how to switch profiles on the Peloton app, our following step-by-step methods will help you go through the entire process without much trouble.

Step #1: Creating a New Profile

The Peloton app does not have the “Switch user” option, so you have to improvise a little to change profiles. 

First, open the Peloton app on the bike, head to the Peloton website using a browser, and log in to your primary account. Next, tap the “Add User” option, which is located at the bottom of the screen next to your avatar. Now tap “Switch Rider” from the menu and select the “Manage Riders” option to initiate the new profile process.

To create a new profile, tap “Add a Rider”, follow the on-screen prompts, and tap “Create account”.

Next, use a new email and type in the username and password for the new profile. 

Go back to the main menu and repeat the above steps to add profiles for more riders if required.

Step #2: Signing Out and Into the Account

In the next step, tap the three horizontal lines with the “More” option written next to them, and tap “Sign Out” in the drop-down menu.

How Many Profiles Can I Have on Peloton?

Suppose you have purchased a subscription while buying a Peloton bike. In that case, you will have an All-Access membership that gives you and up to 20 of your family members living in a single residential address the option to create a separate profile on the same fitness product. 

Also, 5 All-Access members who bought a Peloton guide without investing in the bike can access the tutorials, features, and apps on a single Peloton bike and Tread in a household. However, they cannot access these features with a Peloton Bike and a Peloton Bike Plus combination in one residence. 

A Peloton app membership gives you access to available tutorials and features on the Peloton app, so you cannot use your privileges on any Peloton fitness product, including the bike.
