Sharing one’s Netflix password isn’t exactly a well-kept secret, and neither is the practise of numerous users banding together to purchase a membership that they can then share across multiple devices. Netflix recently disclosed that this practise has actually had a negative impact on the company’s revenues over the long term, and the streaming service indicated that it may soon begin charging a fee for sharing Netflix passwords or accounts with others.
As long as that isn’t the case, you’ll have to get used to sharing your Netflix account. Keeping tabs on everything, however, may get challenging when more and more individuals are accessing your Netflix account using their own credentials. This makes it more difficult to monitor what’s going on. As a result, in today’s episode of ExpressBasics, we’ll demonstrate how to check on who has been using your Netflix account and how to log out all undesired individuals in a single swift motion all at once.
How to determine if else is watching Netflix with your account
You will need to log in to Netflix using a desktop or laptop computer in order to check on other devices that are using your credentials. Visit the Netflix website using a web browser of your choosing, such as Chrome, Firefox, or Safari, and then click here.
In order to proceed, you will be required to provide either your email address or your phone number as a username, in addition to a password. After entering your credentials, be sure you hit the “Sign In” button. After you have successfully signed in, you will need to select one of the user profiles (if you have more than one profile set up), as shown in the following example.
To access your own Netflix profile, navigate to the main page and choose the dropdown menu that is located in the upper right corner of the screen. You will see a drop-down menu below, and one of the items that it contains will be labelled “Account.” Simply clicking on it will take you to the page where you may configure your account.
You will locate the Settings section toward the bottom of the page. Directly beneath it, you will see a number of options highlighted in blue. Find the option that’s labelled “Recent Device Streaming Activity,” then click on it.
You will be able to view further information on the device that has been login into your account when you navigate to the new page. You will also be able to view the location from which they have been checking in as well as the time of their most recent login.
How to delete any and all unwanted logins to Netflix
You have identified the person who has been using your account, and there are very likely some gadgets in there that you are not familiar with. At this time, the only choice available to you is to sign out of all of your devices, change your password, and then log back in using the devices of your choice. This is the procedure for doing it.
To begin, navigate your way back to the account setup page you visited earlier. You may accomplish this by navigating to the main page, selecting “Account” from the menu that drops down from the top right of the page, and then returning to the main page. Next, locate the blue link that reads “Sign out of all devices” in the Settings section that is located at the bottom of the page.
