Netflix debuts Manage Access and Devices
In a blog post, Netflix’s product manager Charles Wartemberg notes that many subscribers will be traveling during the holiday season, signing in on new devices, and then forgetting to log out. Manage Access and Devices will let those subscribers log out remotely, so they don’t have to hassle someone else to do it for them after they leave.
This feature is useful if you have an ex-roommate, a roommate, or just a stranger on your account. Perhaps you share your account with someone who forgets to Venmo half the monthly subscription cost. No matter what the reason, you can log them out of your account much more easily.
When Netflix cracks down next year on password sharing, the feature will be more essential.
