See Who's Mooching Off Your Netflix Account by Checking Its Recent Access

Depending on your plan, your Netflix account can only be used by so many people at once. Exes, old roommates or mean siblings might be mooching off the account you pay good money for, but it’s not too difficult to find out who.

Nathan McAlone at Business Insider explains that a simple trip to your Netflix account activity page will show who has been using your account. Here’s how to find it:

  1. Head to the Netflix home page in your browser and sign in.
  2. In the upper right-hand corner you’ll see your account symbol. Mouse over it, then click “Your Account”.
  3. Scroll down and click the “Viewing activity” link.
  4. Then click the “See recent account access” link.

You’ll see the location and device that’s been watching Netflix with your account, as well as when. You’ll probably be able to deduce who has been using your account from there. Once you know who is mooching, you can ask them to get their own account and stop filling your queue with bad movies, or you can just change your password in your account settings and shut them out for good.
