Your Netflix account could be being used by others
The news is all over the network: many Netflix accounts have been hacked and the access data to those accounts is being used by other people. The multimedia content streaming service would not be the only one whose security had been compromised and other similar services would also be suffering the same attacks. In this case, it seems that there is no more problem than the fact that other people could be using the service, without other more sensitive data having been filtered, but it is still a serious problem that Netflix must solve and that if anyone has a problem account should check immediately if it has been affected. We give you the details below.
It is not difficult to find pages online that offer very cheap access to different streaming content services. It is not about being able to view multimedia content for free, but about using those services for a price much lower than what it usually charges. Obviously nobody “gives hard to pesetas” (euros to cents if we update to our time) and those services that they offer really have a trick: are using other users’ accounts that have been hacked and whose users do not know that this happens. How to detect if your account has been affected? There really is no official method to do it but we do have indirect data that we can use to find out.
The first thing you should do is access your account, see the profiles that you have created and see if there is a new profile that you did not know, or if in the list of episodes or movies seen there is one that you do not remember having seen. If it is your case, or it is not but You want to avoid any type of risk that occurs, access the Netflix settings from your account in a web browser and follow these steps:
- Sign out of all devices.
- Change password
With this you will have to again manually enter your account on all the devices you use with Netflix, but you can rest assured that no one is going to take advantage of your account that you religiously pay every month.
