Remove Device from Netflix Account
To remove a device from the Netflix account, you will need to login to the website as you can’t remove the device from Netflix App. Netflix keeps a list of registered devices that allows you to take control of the access as who can use your Netflix account, watch history, or remove the device you no longer recognize.

Step 2. On the upper right-hand corner of the screen, click on the small profile icon and then click on ‘Accounts’ to access Netflix settings.
Step 3. Scroll down the list and look for the ‘Manage Download Devices’ under the ‘Settings’ section.
Step 4. Look for the device you wish to remove from your Netflix account and click on the ‘Remove Device’ button.
Step 5. The selected device will be removed from the account. You will get a confirmation on the green bar confirming the deletion of the device. All downloads available on that device will be removed and the device will gain no longer access with the same account details.
“Please Note: Netflix only allows two devices to download at the same time using the same account credentials. If you have removed an account, you get a chance to add another device and start streaming or downloading on that device.”
Sign Out Of all Devices
Alternatively, you can also login to your account and go to the account settings page. Click on ‘Sign Out of All Devices’ under the ‘Settings’ section.
