If you have kids, you know that personal space can be hard to come by. And while parents can accept that as part of having children, sometimes it crosses the line and that’s not okay. Like when your adorable kiddos go into Netflix and use your profile. They may do it to find content that’s not available under their names, but this invasion of privacy was too much for one dad, so he came up with a clever way to stop it.
Mike Angiulo decided to put his foot down with his sanity-saving Netflix account. “Everyone at home kept watching Netflix using my profile,” the father tweeted. “Messed up all my lists and history... so I renamed ‘Dad’ to ‘Install Windows Updates Now.’ Problem solved.”
His brilliant hack earned him more than 32,000 retweets and over 135,000 likes. But more importantly, it’s given parents everywhere hope of taking back their own Netflix accounts.
