There is no doubt that the Netflix account security is important and requires a particular attention of yours.
Indeed, malefactors are unable to do much of the harm by accessing your account on Netflix, yet it may cause many headaches and woes you would rather prefer to avoid. However, the video streaming service has provided us only with two means of enhancing the Netflix account security (without taking into account the use of email for recovery): changing the password from time to time and adding the mobile phone number. So if you feel that you need to enhance the security of your Netflix account, follow the guidelines published below.
