HBO Max keeps track of all the devices, including phones, tablets, smart TVs, and streaming devices, that you use with the service. And while it doesn’t track computers, it does remember which web browsers you have used to stream its library content. 

You can review the list of devices that have used your HBO Max account and sign out of any that you no longer need. 

If you suspect someone is using your HBO Max service without your permission, you should change your password in your account settings before you sign out. 

Here’s how to manage your devices linked to HBO Max.
