Netflix "cheating" – sneak-watching a show on the streaming service ahead of your significant other – is becoming more common since first uncovered in a 2013 study. What is the world coming to?

Based on a new survey of more than 30,000 streaming couples released on Monday, the number of Netflix cheating cases has tripled, according to Entertainment Weekly.

More than 48 percent of the couples were guilty of it.

The study also showed that more than 60 percent of Netflix cheaters do not intend on stopping, especially if they can get away with it in the future, said KCTV5 News.

For those who like to have their cake and eat it, too, Cnet.com has four ways a Netflix user can stream their favorite shows ahead of their significant other without getting caught red-handed.

1. Rewind, rewind, rewind. Cheaters who watch shows ahead of their partners need to remember to rewind the sneaked episodes so that everything can be picked up where they left off when the couple sits down to stream together again.

2. Rewrite history. Simply delete sneaked episodes from the viewing history on their profile.

3. Make a burner profile. This allows streamers to make phony accounts and watch their favorite shows and then delete the profiles later, erasing any evidence of cheating.

4. Get a discrete personal account. A user could have two Netflix accounts: one with their significant other and a secret account.

If you do get clean, avoid temptation. TV shows that seem to spark the most cheating are “The Walking Dead,” “Breaking Bad,” “American Horror Story,” “House of Cards,” “Orange Is the New Black,” and “Narcos and Stranger Things.”

Some might not view Netflix cheating as a real thing, but singer Michael Bolton says otherwise, and even apologizes for it in a video on YouTube.

 

Here's where tweeting humankind stands on the spreading problem:
