Find Out Who’s Taunting Your Netflix Account by Checking Recent Access to It

Depending on how much you pay for your data plan , your Netflix account can only be used by a certain number of people at a time. Exes, old roommates, or frivolous siblings – anyone you have unreasonably entrusted with your password – can charge money from an account you’re paying good money for, but it’s not hard to find out if that’s the case.

Simply navigating to your Netflix account settings will let you know the IP addresses and locations of those who have accessed your account. Here’s how to find it:

  1. Go to the Netflix home page in your browser and sign in.
  2. In the upper right corner, you will see your account symbol. Hover over it and click Account.
  3. Scroll down and click the Recent Device Streaming link.
  4. Then click the View Recent Account Access link.

You will see the IP address, location, and type of device that has watched Netflix with your account, as well as when. From there, you can probably determine who used your account. Once you know who’s messing around, you can ask them to create their account and stop filling your queue with bad movies, or you can just go back to the account page, select Sign Out All Devices, and then change your password in your settings. account and disable them permanently. Netflix also allows you to download some content to your device (s), but the number of users allowed to do so will again depend on the details of your monthly plan. On your account page, you can also select “Manage Boot Devices” to remove any unauthorized ones; this will remove the content downloaded to those devices and free you to upload the content to your phone or tablet.
