On Plex, everyone in the family can have their own account with their preferences and media libraries, which is something known as “managed users.”
The only caveat is that every time anyone launches the app, users have to go through the sign in experience when they’re the only ones streaming videos in that particular device. However, it’s possible to sign in managed users automatically, you just need to know the proper instructions, because the option isn’t available in the managed users settings.
How to sign in users automatically on Plex
To sign in managed users automatically on Plex, use these steps:
Sign in with the administrator account (the one with the crown icon).
Click the user menu from the top-right and select the Account option.
Under the “Plex for Windows” section, in the left pane, click the General option.
Check the Automatically Sign in option.
Click the user menu from the top-right and select the Switch User option.
Sign in with the managed user you want to sign in automatically.
Once you complete the steps, when you restart the app, the user should login automatically.
