Hacker Sell Netflix Details

We know lots and lots of you use Netflix. On a Saturday night, we love to sit and have movie time with the kids. Netflix is the affordable way to do it. There's only one problem with it... HACKERS HAVE BEEN SELLING YOUR NETFLIX DETAILS FOR $1 (less than £1)! Okay, so maybe not yours exactly, but they have been selling lots of Netflix members login details.

The thing is, if you are a Netflix member, then it can be used on multiple devices. Whilst the people buying the details aren't after emptying your bank account, just free-loading your Netflix movies, it's still not something you want happening to you.

How do you know if you have been hacked? Look at your 'recently watched' section. Does it have random movies that you have never watched? It's not a definite but if there are things you haven't seen then there's a significant chance someone else is using your Netflix too.

So, what do you do to stop this? Go to 'Your Account' and hit 'Sign out of all devices' this will log you out of every tablet, phone, tv that is using your Netflix account. Ha Ha... so long suckers!

You need to... CHANGE YOUR PASSWORD RIGHT NOW! I would suggest doing that frequently. I would also make sure that you aren't using any passwords that you use for your email accounts, bank logins and so on.
