Depending on your plan, you can download Netflix titles on so many devices. For example, the Basic ($8), the Standard ($11) and the Premium ($14) lets you download videos on 1, 2, and 4 phone or tablet respectively. So, if you have your ex-girlfriend or sibling, downloading Netflix videos on their smartphones without your knowledge, you won’t be able to enjoy the benefit.
I recently went through the same situation, where I wanted to download the new season of House of Cards for the upcoming vacation, but when I press the download button, it says,
You have downloads on too many devices. please remove downloads from another device, or go to netflix.com/changeplan for plan options.
The first thing that comes to the mind is changing the password. But unfortunately, that doesn’t work. The second option is to upgrade your plan to Standard or Premium, but that will cost you more, given the fact the others are mooching off the account you are paying for in the first place.
Fortunately, there is an easy way to remove the other download devices. Here’s how you do it.
You Have Downloads on Too Many Devices Netflix
1. Head to the Netflix website in your browser and sign in. If you are a mobile browser, use ‘Desktop Mode’
2. In the upper right side, you’ll see your account option. Hover on it and click on “Account.”
3. Scroll down till you Setting and click the “Manage download devices” link.
4. I’ll show you the list of devices with current downloads, click on Remove Device button.
It shows you the device Operating System like Android or iOS, without the model number. So, it’s hard to find out who exactly is using your account for downloads. But when you remove a device, all downloads on that device will no longer be available. And you can start downloading on your own device.
