Netflix: How to remove people from your account

Tired of people using your Netflix for free? Here's how to kick off freeloaders from your Netflix account.


If you have a Netflix account, you are bound to have some freeloaders like friends or family members that you share your account with. In many cases, you sign in to your account from many devices like on the Smart TV at Airbnb you stayed or your ex’s place, this can just give a free pass to anyone who has access to these devices to watch all that they want while you pay for the service. And obviously, Netflix is one of the most expensive streaming services ever, so you might want to do something about freeloaders or devices that you do not use anymore (but have logged in via Netflix).

After changing the password, you can log out of all the devices. Also Read - Netflix is all set to introduce ads-supported plans on its platform: All you need to know
