    If someone was to have access to my Apple TV
    Would there be any way to get my Netflix password off it?
    Just like how you can look up passwords stored on a Mac within the keychain (with Mac admin password)

    Additionally, would they be able to get my password from within the iPad app?

    No, there's no way to retrieve the password from either the Apple TV or the iPad. Most likely you have a weak password someone guessed, or you're using the password elsewhere and it was compromised somehow.

    You could retrieve the Netflix password off of an iPad/iPhone if it is stored in Safari--saved passwords are revealed in Settings for Safari. But if you use a password lock, you need that to access that area of settings.

    Nope

    No, they can't get your Netflix password via your AppleTV.

    I know what happen.
    The account wasnt logged out correctly, it hung on the "Are you sure you want to logout?" Screen even after "Yes" was clicked.
    Thanks for your answer by the way.

    I don't thing it's possible, but maybe I'm missing something - is there anyway to removed history from within the Netflix app, Apple TV or iPad?
    Thanks again

    But the password would only be stored if use it in Safari.
    When you say "Safari-saved password ls" and "password lock" you mean keychiain, right?
    An by "that area of settings" you mean the admin area of keychiain?

    If you are in a multi-person household, make sure that you are the only one with the password to the device or app(s) in question.

    Or create multiple users in Netflix, so it can track viewing history separately for each person.

    Yes--you would have to logon to the Netflix web site via Safari using your iPhone or iPad--and the password would be saved if you have that feature turned on.

    No--not the keychain--unless you have the iCloud keychain turned on. The password save feature is available in the IOS "Settings", "Safari", "Passwords and AutoFill"--"Names and Passwords" on. "Saved Passwords"--here is where you would need to input your IOS lock code to access this area--and reveal any saved passwords.
