We just had our second experience using Airbnb. The first time was for a single night before a flight from Miami airport and the only thing we did in the “guest house” we were staying was drop our bags and sleep. Our second try was when we rented a cabin in Georgia for four nights and the cabin was our home. We spent plenty of time lounging on the couch, watching TV.
While the cabin had DirecTV with a multitude of stations, one of the first things we did after getting settled was to set up our streaming accounts. I needed to log into my Disney+ and Amazon Prime accounts but when it came to Netflix, I didn’t have to worry. That’s because Becky already set up her account on the TV. Who is Becky? I have no idea, but I assume she stayed at the cabin some time before we did. We watched Netflix on her account for our stay, since she never logged out. I sure hope she likes “Somebody Feed Phil.”
Since I have in-app purchasing set up on my Amazon account, I made sure to log off when we were done watching TV on our last night. I also logged out of my Disney+, cleared our YouTube history and even logged Becky out of her Netflix account.
While many people don’t give a second thought about logging into their streaming accounts when staying at a hotel or rental property, it’s equally important to log out of your account when you leave. If you forget, don’t be surprised if you see some strange suggestions pop up when you’re asked to continue watching a show you’ve never seen.
