Find Out Who Else Is Using Your Netflix Account
Here's how you can find out if someone else is using your Netflix account, and on which device.
Netflix offers a bunch of great plans for users, allowing them to stream movies and TV shows on multiple screens, or just one at the same time, if they so desire. But the truth is, many users out there like to share their Netflix accounts with others, and evenly break down the cost, because that's the cheapest way to go about business without breaking the bank. After all, the $7.99+ price plan can be a little too steep for those who are tight on a budget, or just don't want to pay full price for whatever reason.
The thing is, while people do trust others with their Netflix credentials, but there might come a point where one would get a hunch that their account is being used by someone that is not authorized to do so. How do you find out that really is the case? It's actually quite simple and we'll walk you through the process.
Find Out If Someone Else Is Using Your Netflix Account
1. Open the Netflix.com website on your Web browser and sign in with your credentials.
2. Hover your mouse pointer on your name at the top right hand corner and then click on 'Your Account.'
3. In the 'My Profile' section, click on 'Viewing activity.'
4. Now click on 'See recent account access' on the top left hand corner.
You're now presented with a list of devices that have been accessing your Netflix account, along with the country, as well as the IP address. If you find something unusual there, then simply change your Netflix password, or have a word with your roommate maybe.
It's actually quite simple isn't it? And it's something which many people don't know about, strangely.
If you're a regular Netflix user then we highly recommend that you go through the steps and make sure that your account isn't being utilized by an unknown person. If you do find something suspicious, then we recommend that you either change your credentials or simply suspend your account, provided that you don't make use of it. After all, if you don't use Netflix and happen to have an account, then you're throwing away a fixed monthly fee straight in the bin, so it's better to save up some dollars than throw them away.
