Till very recently, one of the major issues haunting Hotstar and its users was the illegitimate access to the account gained via cookies and unfortunately, Hotstar had no option to allow you to logout of all devices — except writing them an email to clear all background sessions or transfer your membership to an alternate email ID. But with recent updates, Hotstar has added an option that allows users to logout of their Hotstar account.
If you’re facing issues with your Hotstar account and feel that there is someone else using the account, it’ll help to logout your Hotstar account from all devices. There are two methods that enable users to logout of Hotstar from all devices and both are somewhat related.
You can either change your Hotstar password using our guide here, which will automatically logout your Hotstar account from all devices that are currently using it or you can check out our guide below to logout of all Hotstar sessions using the specific option available in the account settings.
