Help with account setup.


New Member

My ex-wife and I both got our daughter a switch for her birthday.
I created an admin account for myself with a supervised user for my daughter. So far so good.

She will be receiving her second switch from her mother next week and I'd like to figure out the best way to setup the second switch so that she can play all her games from either switch at either house.

If her mom creates another admin account and another account for my daughter will my daughter be able to login to either account from either switch?

Is there a way to add her mom as a second admin on the family group I created so that my daughter can use the same account on both?

I basically have no idea what would be the best way to do this as my last Nintendo product was the Super Nintendo.. lol

Any advice is greatly appreciated.

Nope. You need a new account for each Nintendo Switch. So the mom is going to have to create this account. Once she is old enough, you'll need to create a new account for THAT time. So, my suggestion? Just create this new admin account.
