Use Family Sharing to share iTunes Store purchases in Music on Mac
With Family Sharing, up to six family members can download each other’s iTunes Store purchases to their own computers and devices. Family members can also hide their purchases so others can’t download them.
To use Family Sharing, you need an Apple ID, and you must be invited to join a family group.
View and download other family members’ purchases
In the Music app on your Mac, choose Account > Purchased.
If you see Upgrade to Family, Family Sharing isn’t set up for you.
Click a name near the top-left corner (next to Purchased), then choose a family member to view their purchases.
To download an item, click its Download button .
To view only your downloaded items, click Songs in the sidebar on the left, then choose View > Only Downloaded Music.
Hide your iTunes Store purchases
Family members can hide their individual iTunes Store purchases from other family members.
In the Music app on your Mac, choose Account > Family Purchases.
Click a name near the top-left corner (next to Purchased), then choose your name to view your purchases.
Click a content type on the right.
A list of purchases for the selected content type appears.
Move the pointer over the item you want to hide, click the Delete button , then click Hide.
To see purchases you’ve hidden, choose Account > View My Account, sign in (if necessary), then click Manage to the right of Hidden Purchases (above Purchase History). To make a hidden item visible again, click the item’s Unhide button.
Family Sharing is designed to be used by a single family (adults and children). You can be part of only one family group at a time, but can switch to a different family group up to twice a year. Features may vary based on country or region.
Important: To share purchases, all members of the family group must be in the same country or region (as determined by the billing address associated with their Apple ID). If a family member moves to another country or region and updates their Apple ID information, that person might lose access to the purchases of other family members, and installed apps that were shared by other family members might not work. See the Apple Support article Change your Apple ID country or region.
