Showmax, a video streaming service in South Africa, is a great way to entertain yourself. Thanks to the huge amount of global and Africa focused content.

How To Remove Showmax Device

If like me, you share my logins with family and friends, the number of devices associated with your account can grow exponentially, preventing you from enjoying your account. First, you want to let your friends know that you are about to disconnect their devices. Otherwise, the atmosphere might not be pleasant the next time you see them.

To disconnect a device, log into your Showmax account online via a web browser. Click My Account >> My Devices >> Edit.

The page displays a list of paired devices. Now just remove the device you want to unlink from your account.

And that’s all it takes to remove devices on Showmax. Of course, you can log back into your account with that device as long as the number of registered devices is 5 or less.
