Dad level one thousand: fed-up father shares hilarious Netflix hack
Ever log in to your Netflix account just to discover that someone has been in before you, messing up your shows and lists?
Sick of his wife and daughters using his Netflix to watch their own shows, engineer Mike Angiulo came up with the most dad way to stop them ever.
He replaced the title "Dad" with "Instal Windows Updates Now”. Pure brilliant- no one wants their computer to update just before a Pretty Little Liars binge.
Everyone at home kept watching Netflix using my profile. Messed up all my lists and history… so I renamed “Dad” to “Install Windows Updates Now.” Problem solved. pic.twitter.com/33tpvghLCf

"Everyone at home kept watching Netflix using my profile," he wrote in the now viral tweet. "Messed up all my lists and history… so I renamed 'Dad' to 'Instal Windows Updates Now.' Problem solved."
The most daddest of dad solutions ever.
And he's not the only one to use inventive names to keep scroungers off the Wi-fi or Netflix.
I named a WiFi network “virus proliferation testing” to keep people off it

This guy definitely has the same problem…
It is truely a violation when they do that. My wife started doing that going "I don't think my account works properly … it just feels like it works better on yours".
So I get loads of updates going, "Hey Mike, you probably want to know about Pretty Little Liars". pic.twitter.com/HyqP3fDx0q

While others just like to use Wi-fi passwords to mess with people.
My Mobile Hotspot WiFi network is named "Shout BOGIES for password". I love it when strangers start shouting. Obviously, I still don't give them the password.

Some even extended the trickery to hiding treats…
The equivalent of putting your favorite ice cream in a bag labeled "fish heads" in the freezer… Brilliant!

To make the whole situation even funnier, Netflix themselves even picked up on the tweet. They replied "we stan a genius"- meaning that they're obsessed with him.
So are we, Netflix, so are we.
