For the past four years, I have been watching movies and TV shows on Netflix. Usually, I pay an annual subscription fee that allows me to watch all types of movies. I find this approach cheaper and convenient as compared to buying or downloading movies every day. Besides, I usually receive notifications regarding the latest movies. I am notified whenever new movies are released.
When I was registering myself as a member of Netflix, I was required to fill a lot of personal details. First of all, I had to give my full name and email address (including my alternative email address). Additionally, I was required to provide my phone number under the section of Membership and Billing. Moreover, I had to provide my payment and billing information. Here, I inserted my credit card number under Payment & Billing information so that Netflix can deduct the monthly subscription fee.
Before giving my payment details, I was concerned about the platform’s ability to protect such critical information from hackers. The fact that my credit card is directly connected to the bank made me even more worried. This is simply because, if cybercriminals were to access my personal information and payment details from Netflix, they would be able to withdraw all the money deposited in my bank account.
