Netflix is home to some of the world’s popular shows.

With hits such as creepy stalker-drama You, 80s sci-fi series Stranger Things and teen sensation Sex Education, the super popular streaming service has over 214 million users turning in across the world.

And who could forget Squid Game? The gory game show drama that became the first foreign-language TV series to receive a SAG award nomination.

But is it possible to let your family and friends use your Netflix on a separate device?

How many devices can you use Netflix on?

The amount of devices you can stream to all depends on which subscription plan you have with Netflix.

These can be used for friends and family, with members able to set up separate profiles that give them unique recommendations based on their viewing history.

Netflix even allows you to set up special profiles for children with parental controls, and you’ll find plenty of tailored content for kids.
