Woman Owns Ex With Genius Netflix Stealing Hack
Sharing your partner's Netflix account is all fun and games until you break up and you're left cold turkey - unable to binge watch your favourite shows at the touch of a button.
But one woman came up with the most genius way of continuing to use her ex's Netflix, without him suspecting a thing.
We know, it sounds impossible. Surely he would notice - whether from user recommendations or the 'continue watching' function?
Well, it seems she had thought of all of those things. The woman simply set up a new user account, under the disguised name of 'settings' - and she managed to keep it up for months.
Once he had discovered what had been going on, the boyfriend's brother took to Twitter to tweet about the hilarious trick, writing: "My brother's ex had been stealing our Netflix for the past two months now by disguising her account as 'settings' and honestly I ain't even mad.
"I'm just really disappointed in myself for actually believing that an account named 'settings' would legitimately be Netflix settings."
LOL, so good.

And other Twitter users were equally impressed, with several commenting to congratulate the woman for her sneaky thinking.
One wrote: "What a queen" while another said: "This person deserves god status."
Others suggested they should let her keep the profile, explaining she "earned it" with her genius idea.
Some were less sympathetic, however, with one suggesting: "Wait till she's on the episode BEFORE a series finale then change the password and make sure the option to sign out of all devices is on."
Even Netflix replied, with just a simple: "Respect" - which prompted other users to suggest the streaming platform give her a free account.
We think she deserves one, right?!
