You’ve all heard that you can buy Netflix from some dodgy website for a few pence or know someone that knows someone that can get you free access.
How do these people get such a discount? Well they hack people’s accounts (without them knowing) and share these login details with people for a fee or for free.
So if you’re a legit purchaser of Netflix and your account has been compromised you might find other people are using your connection to watch.
How do I check:
- Look at recently watched to see if anything else is being watched on your account
- Go to account page > ‘Sign out of all devices’, this will ensure everyone (including any hackers) are logged out of your accounts
- Regularly update your passwords + check how secure your password actually is
- Check on sites like https://haveibeenpwned.com/ to see if your account details have been publically compromised online
