  7. Find the person listed that you want to transfer primary ownership to.
    • ​Note: If you can’t find the person, you'll need to add them as an owner. After they accept your invitation, try again from step 1.
  8. Next to their name, tap the down arrow Down arrow and then Primary owner and then Transfer.

You can stop the transfer until it’s complete. If you decide later that you no longer want this person to be the primary owner, change their role or remove them from the account.
