How do I stop Amazon & Alexa info showing up on DD’s tablet?

I’ve been searching online for the answer to this but can’t seem to find anything clear & I am a bit of a struggling technophobe looking for help please!

Last year we bought my daughter an amazon fire tablet which I must have set up with my email address as she didn’t have one (she now has her own). I got an Amazon echo show for Christmas and have been trying it out with reminders etc.
DD has informed me that all my Alexa reminders are flashing up on her tablet. She can also see books I’ve bought via kindle on Amazon.

I realise this must be to do with the fact her amazon account is linked to mine but I don’t know how to change this. Can anyone help me please?

I had similar, managed to unlink my calendar and notifications (via the Alexa device menu for her Echo Show) for hers, but still struggling that my Photos are showing up on her Echo Show! It does the 'on this day' and all my photos scroll through....not that I have any risque photos but there are some of my skin which I keep to show my doctor for example...

Go into your Amazon account (on the website version) and go to manage your devices. You can then set parameters on the device, set age constraints and you should be able to unlink it from the Alexa from there as well. Been a while since I did this, but I'm pretty sure that's where I went to fix it.

Go to settings and wallpaper and you can select which albums show from Amazon Photos.

Until I sorted it out I was getting all the screenshots of WhatsApp conversations I’d ever taken and yep a couple of semi nudeys showing in the kitchen blush

Thanks, I’m still struggling to see how to do it. She actually has Alexa blocked on her tablet but my alexa notifications are still popping up on her screen.
I’ve found Amazon household & wondering if it’s something to do with this.
I can’t understand why I can’t find some guidance for this online, I imagine it must be quite a common issue.

@Chilver how exactly did you unlink the calendar & notifications. Do I go into devices via my Amazon account, the Alexa app on my phone or or via her tablet? I’m so confused!

Hi, I went via my Alexa app on my phone. I think its under Devices_'device name'_general_Sounds_Turn off notifications.

Not particularly intuitive as its not actually a 'sound'!!

@Chilver thank you, I’ve finally managed to get the reminders to stop appearing but it’s still showing all my lists😩
