    Your family can have their Kodi their way. It's as easy as setting up some new Kodi profiles.
    Your kids want to watch something on your Kodi system, but you're not so keen on filling up your add-ons list with child-friendly channels. That's fine, because just as you can with popular services like Netflix, you can create profiles for your kids to keep their stuff separate.
    The process for creating Kodi profiles is not immediately obvious, because it's not exactly user-facing. But it's also not very difficult, as long as you know where to look.

    I love Kodi, and have used it since the original XBMC days on hacked Xbox hardware; but the "profile" feature is half-baked, at best.

    You might think that the #1 use of profiles would be to track what someone has watched, but Kodi doesn't do that on a per-profile basis. Instead, it will show you what any profile has watched... in addition to limiting its usefulness, there's some pretty significant privacy issues.

    Over the years, many XBMC/Kodi forum users have tried to hack together their own solutions by manipulating the database and configuration - and some have been pretty effective - but once you go down that road, you face significant challenges with every upgrade.
