How to stop someone from accessing your HBO Max account?

HBO Max is a new streaming service by HBO that brings you all the perks of HBO Go and HBO Now along with additional content offered by HBO’s partners. You can get a free subscription to HBO Max if you are already subscribed to HBO Now via your TV provider. Simply use the TV provider log in option with your existing credentials to avail of the free offer.

While HBO Max offers you the ability to share your account with your friends and family members, you might have someone unauthorized accessing your account. If that is the case, then this could not only prevent you from accessing HBO Max yourself but also end up putting your bank account in the wrong heads. Follow the guide below to easily stop someone from accessing your HBO Max account.

Change your HBO Max password

The first thing that you should do is start by changing your HBO Max password. This will prevent the unauthorized entity from gaining access to your HBO Max account again. Let’s take a look at how you can reset your HBO Max password from your desktop or mobile device.

Note: If you use your TV provider credentials to log in to your HBO Max account then we recommend you reset them via your TV provider. Ensure that you use a more cryptic and hard to crack the password. A good thumb rule for creating a new password is to include lower case letters, upper case letters, symbols, and random numbers. This will make it much harder for people to crack your password in the future.
