How to kick someone out of your Netflix account

Netflix is not necessarily a solo service, far from it. The platform is indeed made to be shared. At least up to a point. And precisely, here are different solutions that will allow you to clean your account.

You probably know it, but Netflix offers three different subscription plans.

The first is the most limited of all and it is limited to one access, without high definition. To go further, we must therefore focus on one or other of the remaining formulas. The first costs € 11.99 per month and it allows two simultaneous accesses with HD, against € 13.99 for the second and four accesses with 4K.

The world is so made that many of us share our account with the other members of the household, whether it is the children or our spouse. And sometimes, it also happens that we are even more generous and that we give access to our account to friends or people we know.

But now, it can happen that our generosity turns against us. Fortunately, Netflix has planned the blow and the service offers a lot of interesting tools to limit access to our account.

How do you know who is accessing your Netflix account?

Before embarking on a vendetta, it's probably best to first determine if unwanted people are actually accessing your Netflix account.

The platform has done things right and it offers a complete history that allows you to know precisely where our account has been used.

To access it, nothing complicated, just follow these steps:

  • Open a browser;
  • Go to https://www.netflix.com/ ;
  • Identify yourself to your account;
  • Click on your avatar at the top right;
  • Access your account settings;
  • Click on the “Recent Streaming Activity” link.

After clicking on this link, Netflix will take you to a page listing all the devices that have recently accessed your account.

For each of them, you will be able to see the name of the device, the hours of access, but also the location.

Option 1: change password

This is the easiest and most obvious solution, but not necessarily the most practical. If you change your account password, then access to the platform will be blocked from everywhere.

A radical measure, and quite simple to implement since it will suffice to follow these steps to change your password:

  • Open a web browser;
  • Go to https://www.netflix.com/ ;
  • Identify yourself to your account;
  • Click on your avatar at the top right;
  • Go to the account settings;
  • Click on “change password”;
  • Follow the displayed instructions.

The procedure is fairly straightforward, but it still has one notable drawback: you'll have to re-identify yourself on any device you use every day. In addition, you will also need to make the effort to remember a new password.

Option 2: cut off access to your Netflix account from all devices

The second solution may therefore be a good option. It will indeed allow you to remove access to your account from all devices on which it is used.

Concretely, therefore, if you have configured your account on an ex's smartphone or tablet – without giving her your password – well you can eject it effortlessly using this function.

The advantage is that by choosing this solution, you will not need to memorize a new password. All you have to do is follow these steps:

  • Open a web browser;
  • Go to https://www.netflix.com/ ;
  • Identify yourself to your account;
  • Click on your avatar at the top right;
  • Go to the account settings;
  • Click on the “disconnect from all devices” link.

After clicking on this link, all configured access to Netflix will be suspended and you will have to go back to all your devices to connect again.
