Apple TV makes it easier for you to access all your TV shows and movies on many devices. With the Apple TV app, you are no longer limited to streaming your Apple TV+ on your iOS device or smart TV. There are several compatible devices where you can watch your TV series and movies that are non-Apple produced.
By subscribing to Apple TV Plus, you can stream Apple Original films and TV shows that are exclusive only to subscribers. You can even buy and rent titles on iTunes right inside the Apple TV app. Now, the Apple TV app is compatible with streaming media players, gaming consoles, and smart TV devices.
However, if you have signed in to your Apple TV account on someone else’s TV or streaming device, then you might wonder how you can remotely log out of that device. It might also be the case where you shared your Apple TV account with multiple users such as a friend or family member, and you want to kick them out of your streaming subscription.
One thing you have to remember always is never to forget to log out of your Apple TV app on all your devices to avoid other people from accessing your account without your permission.

There are other reasons why you need to log out of your Apple TV app on all devices. If you opened your account on other devices apart from yours, it stays open and accessible if you did not sign out after using it. The risk is for the device owner to use your Apple TV account without your authorization.
If you shared your Apple TV password with your friends as mentioned above, and you want to kick someone out, the best way is to log out of your Apple TV app on all devices remotely. Then, you can change your password and log back in using your new information.
