Learning how to log out of the Netflix app on an iPhone is important if you are signed into the app with a friend or family member’s account and they have asked you to stop using it, or if you had previously been using an account that is no longer active. But the sign-out option on the Netflix menu might not be immediately obvious, and you may be having difficulty figuring out how to actually sign yourself out of the Netflix app on your device.
Fortunately there is a way for you to log out of the Netflix app, and it is a process that only involves a few steps. Once you have followed those steps below you will be able to sign into the app with a different account and continue to watch Netflix movies and TV shows on your iPhone.

Signing Out of Netflix on an iPhone (Older version of the Netflix app)
The steps below were written on an iPhone 5 running the iOS 7 version of the operating system. The version of the Netflix app used in these steps was the most current version of the app available as of June 12, 2014. If your screens look different than the ones below, or if you do not see the Sign Out option at the bottom of the screen, then you may be using an older or newer version of the app. You can install an available app by opening the App Store, then selecting the Updates option at the bottom-right of the screen.
Step 1: Open the Netflix app.
Step 2: Scroll all the way to the bottom of the screen, then touch the Sign Out button. This can take quite a bit of scrolling, but there is a bottom to this screen.
Step 3: Touch the Yes button to confirm that you want to sign out of the Netflix app.
You will now be shown a Netflix sign in screen where you can enter the email address and password for a Netflix account that you want to use on the device.
