Smart televisions have opened up a lot of entertainment options for us. We can download different streaming apps onto our TVs and watch shows on streaming services we might never have been able to watch on regular television. This includes Netflix. But, there might come a time when you would like to log out of your Netflix account on your television. 

  • Open the Netflix app.
  • Press the left arrow on your remote to open the app men
  • Find “Settings” and open the menu. 
  • Look for the “Sign Out” option and select it. 
  • Confirm that you want to sign out.

Read on to find out which steps to take to log out of your Netflix account on your smart television and some reasons why you may want to do so periodically. 

How to Easily Log Out of Netflix on Your TV

Smart televisions have opened up a lot of options for streaming shows from subscription services. Netflix offers some of the best shows and movies around, and it is nice to have the option of watching these shows on your television instead of a phone or tablet.

The Netflix TV app allows users to do this. However, there may come a time when you need to log out of your Netflix account on your television.

You can find the option to log out of your Netflix account on the side menu under “Settings.” Choose “Sign out,” then confirm your selection. You will need to enter your email address and password the next time you want to use the app.

Why Should I Logout of Netflix Periodically?

You may want to log out of your Netflix account for several reasons. These could include: 

  • To log in with another account 
  • If you have logged in on someone else’s television 
  • If you are replacing your television 

Below, we’ll discuss why signing out of your account is the best course of action in these three scenarios. 

To Login with Another Account 

If another member of your family has their own Netflix account, they may want to sign you out so they can log in. Because you cannot be logged into two Netflix accounts at once, signing out of the current account is the only way to achieve this. 

If you do this often, you might want to consider alternative options. You can have multiple profiles under one Netflix account, and creating multiple profiles will ensure no member of your family loses their place in a TV show you all watch at different times. 

You could also use another device, such as a Roku or Fire TV stick, and download the Netflix app onto that device. Then, you can plug the device into your TV any time you want to use the other account. 

If You Have Logged in on Someone Else’s Television 

If you’re the only one in your friend group who has a Netflix account, you may log in to your account on a friend’s TV so you can watch a particular show or movie. However, you might not want to give your friend unlimited access to your Netflix account. 

Anyone logged into your account can make changes and continue using it until you sign out. Logging out before you leave is essential to maintain your account’s privacy and prevent other people from blocking your own access to your account. 

If you have given someone else access to your Netflix account and wish to kick them off, you can also use a browser and log out of all your devices at once. Follow the steps below to do so:

  • Log into Netflix from a web or mobile browser.
  • Open the menu on the right side of the screen.
  • Choose “Account,” then “Settings.” 
  • Press “Sign out of all devices.” 

Now, you can sign back into the devices in your home while ensuring no one else has access to your Netflix account. 

If You Are Replacing Your Television 

If you are selling your old TV to replace it with a new one, you’ll want to log out of your Netflix account for the same reason you would when using your account on a friend’s television. 

This will ensure that whoever you sell your TV to does not have access to your Netflix account without your permission or knowledge. 

Most Netflix accounts only allow for a certain number of users, and if you do switch televisions, you might also need to sign out of your account to ensure you can use it on your new television. 

In Conclusion

There are many reasons why you might need to log out of your Netflix account on a television, laptop, or tablet. Some include using your account on someone else’s television or changing accounts. 

Whatever the reason may be, you can easily sign out of your Netflix account through the Settings menu on the app.
