A NETFLIX fan has warned others to think twice before sharing your account with friends – even if they're close.
Reddit user CandidCrescent came to the rescue of a long-time pal who had fallen on hard times.
She offered her Netflix account and password so she could save a bit of cash (though that's against the streaming giant's rules now, of course).
However, the friend abused the generous offer and decided to share the account with others.
The so-called friend confessed to handing the details out to her boyfriend so they can watch TV and films together.
But CandidCrescent didn't take too kindly to doing something so cheeky before asking.

"Today she called me and she casually told me she gave my Netflix account to her partner so they could watch movies together," she explained on Reddit.
"She proceeded to ask if I'm mad she gave it away and although livid I responded that her question is a little too late considering she already did it.
"I didn't wanna be an a**hole so I hung up to compose myself."
The Netflix subscriber then decided to sign out of all devices and change the password so no-one can go back in.

"I didn't mean to be selfish, I would have been fine with them BOTH using it if she'd asked," she added.
Commenters on Reddit came out in support of her.
"It's pretty obnoxious to take a kind gesture and assume that means you can treat it exactly like it's yours and then give the password to whoever else you want to," one person responded.
"All she had to do was ask, but she decided to do it without asking your permission."
But now the woman faces an even bigger headache, as she's revealed that the password she uses on Netflix is the same on all her accounts.
So she'll have to go and change her password on other sites as well now to keep everything safe.
