I know tons of people who share Amazon Prime that are not related or not living in the same address. Maybe they'll crack down eventually, but the only realistic way to do this is if they limit Amazon Prime to one physical address per account.
It has indeed changed for folks who started sharing after last summer.
Amazon previously allowed anyone with an Amazon Prime subscription to share shipping benefits and a few others, with up to four other “household” members. But with a change to its policies at the end of July, Amazon now only allows a Prime member to share their Prime benefits with one other adult.
What’s more, anyone sharing an account has access to each other’s credit cards to make purchases. That’s obviously not a problem for spouses or significant others who live together and share their financials, but it does put a damper on sharing your Prime benefits with extended family members, or with your friends or roommates, for example.
