Although there are hundreds of video streaming services available today, it was Netflix that steals the show at the end of the day. Being the most popular video streaming service, Netflix offers you endless hours of fun and entertainment by offering you Movies, TV Shows, and Games.

If you are an active Netflix user and have your account details shared with your friends, you may often see ‘Continue Watching’ for Movies & TV Shows that you have never watched on the platform. This thing happens when you share your account detail with others.

Although Netflix doesn’t allow account sharing, users often share their account details with their friends, and they end up sharing with their friends. When Netflix detects this account sharing chain, it simply bans the account. So, if you want to prevent an account ban and want to be safe, you should avoid sharing your account details with anyone.

If you haven’t shared your Netflix account detail with anyone, and you still see the ‘Continue Watching’ option on Netflix, make sure that no one else is using your account.
