Most smart TVs will have popular apps such as Netflix pre-loaded into their systems, which means that anyone can log in if they wish to watch the latest movie or series. It’s quite easy to log in to Netflix- just type in your email address and Netflix password, and after that, you’ll be able to view available content.
However, if you’re visiting a friend or relative’s house you’d want to make sure that your Netflix account won’t stay there and get accessed for free. So, the question is, how do I log out of Netflix on an LG TV?
How to Sign Out of Netflix on LG TV
To log out of a Netflix account on an LG TV, you can either do it via the app or through a browser window. The easiest way is to access your Netflix account’s settings, then look for an option that says ‘sign out’.
Remember, only one account is allowed for use on a smart TV, so if you want to view your profile and the content you have you will need to log in again. This won’t be a problem if you’re using someone else’s TV, such as when you’re visiting, at a hotel, or on vacation.
If you can’t access the LG TV anymore (such as when you’re flying or driving home), there’s no need to worry. We’ll show you a trick to sign out of all devices with your Netflix username and password.
Disconnecting Your Netflix Account on an LG TV
The key to logging out of Netflix on a smart TV is to access the Netflix app first, then go from there.
If you happen to see a ‘log in to Netflix’ or something similar when you open the Netflix app on the LG TV, then that means that you don’t have to do this process anymore. However, if the app continues and shows your profile and the content you’ve watched, e.g., My List, Continue Watching, etc., then you will need to follow these steps.
Step 1. Make Sure the TV is On and You Have the Remote
To access the Netflix app, the LG TV has to be turned on. You can locate the power button on the TV itself, or use the remote and press the ‘on’ button, which is usually red and has a circle icon on it.
Step 2. Locate and Open the Netflix App
Most apps on a smart TV are usually located right in the default home screen. Use the remote to navigate through the choices, but if the TV has another app or channel open then you can go back to home by pressing the dedicated ‘home’ button.
At the home screen, use the remote’s directional buttons to highlight the Netflix app. Then, press enter or the middle button to open Netflix.
Step 3. Go to Netflix Settings
After Netflix loads you’ll see a list of profiles in your account- choose one of them and press the ‘enter’ button on the remote. You’ll be taken to the Netflix home screen with all the available TV shows and movies you can watch.
Ignore that for a moment, and direct your attention to the top right part of your screen. There’s an icon that looks like a cog, and if you enter that you’ll be on the settings page. Once you access it you’ll see personal details, such as your username, device, and more.
Look for an option that says ‘Sign Out’ and press the enter button. The app will confirm this, so press ‘yes’ and hit enter once more, and you’ll be logged out of Netflix on the LG TV.
Alternatively, the log-out option might be hidden in the ‘Get Help’ link, which is a small circular icon with a question mark inside it. Once inside, just look for the ‘Sign Out’ button to complete the process.
You can also delete the Netflix app entirely from the LG TV, which effectively logs your Netflix account out. However, this will prove to be inconvenient for other users as they will need to redownload Netflix at the LG Content Store.
How to Log Out Your Netflix Account on All Devices
Logging out your Netflix account on all the devices you’ve ever logged in is the equivalent of a hard reset. This option should only be done if you want to protect your Netflix account and the devices are no longer accessible to you.
Let’s say you stayed at a hotel for several days and accessed your Netflix account on the room’s LG TV. Then, you forgot to log out and went back to your house. You suddenly remembered that you were still logged in (or found that someone else is using your account), but there’s no way to physically be there and log out.
If this is the case, you don’t need to spend more money to try and go back to the hotel- Netflix offers a way to log out of all devices. What you will need is a smartphone or laptop and an internet connection to get this done.
Sign Out Using Your Smartphone
The first thing you need to do is download the Netflix app (if you haven’t done so already), open it and log in. Then, follow these steps.
Step 1. Choose Your Profile
In the latest Netflix app version you will be required to choose a profile (if there is more than one), so pick the main profile and get inside.
Step 2. Tap Your Profile (Again) to Get to Settings
Your profile will be relegated as a small icon at the top right corner of your phone screen. Tap it and you’ll be taken to another menu, this time with options regarding Notifications, My List, App Settings, Account, and Help.
There’s also an option to ‘Sign Out’, which may prove to be useful to know if you want to log out of that particular device.
Step 3. Go to Account
Tap on ‘Account’ and you will be taken to another screen, this time to ‘Membership and Billing’. Here, you’ll see your email address, phone number, and the next billing date, among others. The screen is scrollable, so go further down and past ‘Plan Details’ and into ‘Security and Privacy’, where you’ll see an option that says ‘Sign out of all devices’.
Step 4. Confirm Sign Out Of All Devices
Tap ‘Sign out of all devices’, and you will have a second prompt that says ‘are you sure you want to sign out of this Netflix account on all devices?’, with a blue button that says ‘Sign Out’ and another that says ‘Cancel’.
Tap the blue ‘Sign Out’ button and allow the app to complete the request. Next time the LG TV user opens the Netflix app, it will go to the ‘sign in’ screen and will require a valid Netflix username or email and password.
You will also be signed out of the Netflix app on your smartphone. Go back and log in to enjoy the available content.
Sign Out Using Your Laptop
If you’d rather use a computer, such as a laptop or desktop to sign out all devices connected to your Netflix account then that’s fine as well. You will need to be connected to the internet and have a browser that’s up-to-date.
Step 1. Open a Browser Window
You can use your preferred browser, including Safari, Google Chrome, or Microsoft Edge, among others to complete this action. It will be best if you’d do this using your own personal computer and within your home wi-fi network.
Open a browser and type in the Netflix address, which is Netflix.com. You’ll be greeted with a splash page and the option to ‘Sign In’ at the top right part of the screen.
Step 2. Log In to Your Netflix Account
At the next page are spaces to enter your username or email address and your Netflix password. Fill them up and click or tap on ‘Log In’. If successful, you’ll be taken to the home screen.
Step 3. Find the Settings Page
Within the menu is a small icon that looks like a cog. Click or tap on it and you will be taken to the Settings page. It will be the same one as the smartphone version, so find and click the button that says ‘Account’.
Step 4. Confirm Sign Out
Click or tap the option that says ‘Sign out of all devices’ and do the same for the confirmation. You will then get logged out of all devices that have used your Netflix credentials once you hit ‘confirm’.
You can cover your tracks further by deleting Netflix from your browser history. Go to the browser settings, then find ‘History’ and press the delete button on the Netflix address. You’re done!
Get Peace of Mind By Knowing How to Log Out Your Netflix on LG TV
With security and privacy at a premium, knowing how to log your Netflix account out of any device is important. While most of the time you’ll need to have physical access to the device, Netflix allows a remote log-out option that can be done at home.
