Teens get their own Amazon accounts (if their parents let them)

Amazon now lets teenagers shop via separate logins attached to their parents' accounts

To streamline the process further, teens can also add personalized notes to each product they select for approval, allowing them to offer their parents a bit of justification for the products they want or need (such as important school supplies). Parents who want to avoid the approval step can set a preapproved spending limit on Amazon.

Afterwards, the teen will log into the Amazon App using their own username and password. Parents can then allow or deny the attempt with a simple "Y" or "N" reply to the automated message.

However, even in the cases where teens are allowed to place their own orders, parents can receive itemized notifications for every order and they're able to cancel or return items, as usual.

Amazon launched Households in 2015 in order to install more control over the ways people were sharing their Prime accounts with friends and family, and this is an evolution of that move. Two adults and up to four teens and four child profiles may link in a Household.

The new monthly program totals about $65 a year, but Amazon doesn't require a yearlong commitment.

By the time they're 13 to 17, they're advanced enough internet users that keeping them out of their Amazon accounts in probably the least of parents' concerns-does Amazon have any suggestions for keeping teens from ordering drugs on the dark web? "We've listened to families and have built a great experience for both teens and parents", Michael Carr, vice president of Amazon Households, said in a statement. The catch: parents will be notified of each purchase via text or email, and will, by default, have to approve or deny each one. Amazon is trying to replicate that feeling for the digital generation.
