There’s nothing worse than opening your Netflix account to watch a series or movie and finding a black screen that says, “A lot of people are using the account.” But how did other people have access to your password?
Often, instead of looking for the culprits, it is easier to simply remove them from your account, once and for all. Below is a handy guide to eliminating Netflix users from multiple streaming service accounts, so you’ll never see the undesirable message that you’re logged in or that there are too many open sessions.
On the Netflix home screen, go to “Account” in the upper right corner. Next to “Settings,” select “Log out on all devices.” You will receive a message asking you to confirm that you want to leave. After confirming this, this process may take up to eight hours for the session to be closed on all devices.
In the meantime, go back to the desktop and change your password in the “Account” section. From now on, your account is only yours, and everyone who wants to use it will need the new login password. If you also want to see the streaming activity, click on “Recent device broadcast activity” in the “Settings” section.
