Here’s how to find out who’s been using your Netflix account

By Time Out Film

Tis the season for spending a criminal amount of time under the duvet junking on Netflix. But if you find yourself settling down with the last of the Christmas chocolate orange and season two of ‘Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt’, and getting continually kicked off your account because someone else is logging in – we have the answer.

Netflix is pretty mellow about sharing accounts, so it's easy to forgot who you've given your details to over the years. Maybe your ex is still using your password, or your old housemate? But did you know that you can see who's been lurking on your account? Just log in, find My Account, and in the My Profile section click on Viewing Activity. There you’ll find a list of everything that’s been watched recently. Netflix doesn't tell you who has been sneaking into your account – just their IP address and location. But if you spot anything suspicious, change your password. 

Now for something to watch…
