How to Log Out of Netflix on LG Smart TV / All Devices

We’ve all been there – you let a friend or family member use your Netflix account on their device while visiting. Now, even after they leave, they still have access unless you log them out. This post will show you how to sign out of Netflix across all devices so only you have access.

Logging out of Netflix is an easy process once you know the steps for your specific device. We’ll cover how to sign out on LG Smart TVs, phones, tablets, computers, and more. Having control over who can access your Netflix account is important, especially if you are concerned about people using your subscription without your permission!

Logging Out on an LG Smart TV

If someone was using your Netflix account on your LG Smart TV, follow these steps to fully sign out of your profile:

  • Open the Netflix app on your LG TV. This is usually available as a pre-installed app in the LG Content Store.

Open the Netflix app on your LG TV

  • Use the LG remote to navigate to the icon showing your profile avatar in the top right corner of the screen.
  • Select “Manage Profiles” from the dropdown menu when you highlight your icon.
  • A menu will pop up showing all profiles currently signed into Netflix on this TV. Highlight the profile you want to log out completely.
  • Press the red button on your LG remote while that profile is selected to confirm sign out.
  • A dialog box will appear asking “Are you sure you want to sign out?” – Confirm sign out by selecting “Yes”.

And that’s it! Those 5-6 steps will instantly revoke access to your Netflix account from that LG Smart TV.

Additional tips for greater security:

  • Set up parental controls and require a PIN to be entered before signing back into Netflix on your LG TV after logging out. This adds an extra barrier against unauthorized access.
  • Periodically change your Netflix login password to keep it secure. This will also automatically log out any old logged in devices using outdated passwords.

Logging Out on a Mobile Device or Tablet

Perhaps your account was logged in on a friend’s iPhone or Android device, or a family member’s iPad tablet. Not to worry – signing out of Netflix mobile apps is very simple:

  • Open up the Netflix app on the mobile device or tablet you want to revoke access from
  • Tap on the icon showing your account profile avatar, typically found in the bottom right corner of the app
  • Select “Manage Profiles” from the menu that pops up
  • Tap on the profile icon found next to your name at the top of this screen
  • Toggle the “Sign Out” option shown here to ON to instantly log out of just your profile or all profiles

Again, just 5-6 taps or clicks logs any mobile device or tablet out of your Netflix account almost instantly. Doing this removes that device’s access moving forward.

Logging Out on a Computer

Simialrly, it’s easy to log out a laptop, dekstip or other computer that is currently signed into your Netflix account:

Netflix website by going to

  • Hover over your profile icon shown in the top right corner of the screen
  • Click on “Sign Out” in the dropdown menu that appears
  • Depending on your account settings, you may need to enter additional credentials like a PIN to confirm sign out

And your Netflix access is revoked on that computer! When signing back in from that device in the future, remember to toggle OFF the “Remember Me” option during login so you aren’t automatically signed back in.

Additional Netflix Log Out Tips

Beyond the basic steps to log out of active Netflix sessions on your devices, keep these extra tips in mind:

  • Use parental control PIN requirements – As mentioned for LG Smart TVs, setting up Netflix parental controls that make entering a PIN mandatory before signing in can add critical protection, especially for shared TVs.
  • Change passwords periodically – Old passwords could linger on some devices allowing access even if you sign out elsewhere. Doing the occasional Netflix password change flushes out all outdated login credentials.
  • Revoke access if unauthorized account usage detected – If you notice movies appearing in your viewing history that you didn’t watch, or device IPs from unfamiliar locations, immediately log out ALL devices to revoke permissions while investigating the potential unauthorized use.

How to Log Out of Netflix on LG Smart TV with Remote

If you have an LG remote handy, logging out of Netflix on your LG Smart TV just takes a few seconds. Follow these simple steps using your LG Magic Remote:

  1. Open the Netflix app on your LG Smart TV
  2. Press the Home button to exit Netflix and return to the LG TV home screen
  3. Highlight the Netflix app with your remote and press & hold the OK/Select button
  4. Select “Close App” when the pop-up menu appears
  5. This fully quits the Netflix app, forcing any active profiles to sign out

You’ll see Netflix disappear from your open apps. The next time it’s launched, no profiles will be auto-signed in, requiring anyone to input user credentials.

For added peace of mind, you could:

  • Set up a Netflix profile PIN that must be entered before signing in
  • Periodically change your Netflix password to invalidate old device credentials
  • Disable the “Remember Me” setting on profile sign-in

Together, those security precautions guarantee only you can login moving forward after a logout.

Having your remote nearby makes logging out of Netflix a speedy task. Now no one else will have access!

How to Log Out of Netflix on LG Smart TV without Remote

What if your LG remote is lost or misplaced and you urgently need to log out of Netflix – can it be done without the controller? Absolutely!

Here is an effective step-by-step guide to signing out of your Netflix account on an LG Smart TV when the physical remote is not accessible:

  1. From the Netflix app, navigate to your profile icon in the top right corner
  2. Select “Manage Profiles” from the dropdown menu that appears
  3. Now use the TV’s onboard menu buttons to highlight and select your profile name
  4. This will bring up additional profile control options on screen
  5. Using the onboard buttons, navigate down to and select “Sign Out” to revoke access
  6. Confirm sign out on the dialog box that appears afterwards

The process may take longer relying on your LG TV’s manual buttons, but will still completely log out your Netflix account if needed in absence of a physical remote.

As alternative options, you could also:

  • Use another smart device like a tablet or phone to modify parental control settings to include a PIN requirement before signing back into Netflix on the LG TV
  • Access your Netflix account from a laptop or other computer to reset your password; this invalidates credentials stored on all devices forcing them to re-authenticate
  • Download a third-party smart TV remote app giving you on-screen remote control capabilities

While doable without a remote, revoking access to Netflix is much quicker and easier using the LG Magic Remote! So track it down or get a replacement if possible!


How do I remove my Netflix account from another TV?

To remove a device from Netflix, delete it from your list of connected devices in account settings. Removing a device from your Netflix account will also remove any downloads on it. You can’t remove a device from the connected devices list on Netflix just by logging out.

How do I reset my Netflix app on my smart TV?

Firstly, locate the Netflix app on your smart TV and highlight it. Then press the options or settings button on your remote, which often looks like a gear icon. In the app-specific settings menu that appears, find and choose the option to delete, reset, or reinstall the app. Your smart TV may prompt you to confirm deleting the Netflix app. After this, return to your home screen and reinstall the Netflix app by selecting it from the Smart TV app store in order to reinitialize and reset it.


And that’s all there is to it! By accessing your account settings directly through the Netflix app on your LG Smart TV, you can log out from all devices with just a few simple clicks. This will sign you out from all phones, tablets, laptops, and TVs accessing your account. Then next time when you login again, you can easily choose which devices you want access Netflix moving forward.
