Edit a Friend

Select a Friend to Edit

Click the edit (pencil) icon for a friend to edit that entry.

A window will appear to allow you to edit that friend.


The General tab shows the email address for the friend's account and also allows you to remove the friend.


On the left, you'll see a list of Plex Media Servers associated with your Plex account. For each Server, you can choose whether or not to share content with the friend.

You can leave All Libraries selected or you can unselect it to choose only individual Libraries to share.


Restrictions allow you to more finely control access to content you share. You can choose whether or not the friend is able to sync shared content, use Camera Upload, or access channels. You can also select specific content ratings from your Library to share as well as content that you've set with a specific Label.

Tip!: Restrictions beyond Allow Channels require an active Plex Pass subscription for the main Plex Media Server account.
