Are you a Netflix subscriber? If so, then you must have shared your Netflix ID and password with multiple other users. This is a ritual we follow to save the hefty subscriber fee the popular OTT platform charges. And, this is where keeping things private can become a little difficult.
If you have ever shared your Netflix account details with someone, it is possible that they still have access of your account and you don’t even know it.
