If you have the standard plan then you can stream on two devices at once, the top plan is the premium plan and you can stream on four devices at the same time.
How do I see which devices are using my Netflix account
It is worth checking once in a while which devices are using your account, for example, you may be logged into a device that you used previously but no longer use. For example, if you go on holiday and log in to your Netflix account on a third-party device, you can check to make sure you have logged out of this device.
To check which devices are using your account, log into your account on your PC or Mac or smartphone or tablet and then select Your Profile.
Now go to the menu at the top right next to your profile and select Account, scroll down until you see the Security and Privacy section.
On the right select Manage access and devices, you will now see a list of devices that are using your account on a regular basis. If you noticed any devices that you do not recognize, you can sign out of that specific device.
What to do if someone is using your Netflix account without permission
If you suspect that someone is using your Netflix account without your permission and you want to stop them from using it, this can easily be done, although you will need to change your password.
If you have found a device you do not recognize by following the steps above, then you will need to change your Netflix password.
To do this select the menu next to Your Profile at the top right and select Account, now select change password. You will be asked to input your current password and your new one.
There is a check box below the new password, which says ‘sign out of all devices‘ check this, and as soon as you change your password, you will be signed out of every device.
You can now log in to the devices that you want to use, anyone who was previously using your Netflix account without your permission will no longer have access to it.
