Netflix PIN Option Added To Keep Your Account Safe!

When you end up giving in and sharing your Netflix password with your loved ones, you want to make sure your user account is untouchable. Not giving in the first is an untouchable method, but, let’s move on …….What if they watch the rest of the series you were watching? Thankfully, Nextflix has made it possible to make a private profile and lets users create their individual Netflix PIN.

This update is part of a larger update that is intended to improve on parental controls – it allows content to be filtered depending on age. The age limitations are kids 7 and below and kids 13 and below. As well as this, the Netflix PINs will help the kids get off the TV for longer.

Setting up the Netflix PIN can be done from both desktop and mobile devices.

First, you have to sign in to your Netflix account and select your profile. Click “Account” from the drop-down menu that appears in the upper-right corner. Then, you want to scroll down to the Profile and Parental Controls section of your profile. Click “Change” in the Profile Lock section. Next, enter your Nexflix account password. After you’ve done that, check the box that says “Lock this profile by creating a 4-digit PIN”. Finally, enter your desired PIN and click Save.

As well as this, if you want to be really guarded, there’s an option to require the main account profile’s Netflix PIN to create other profiles. In the iOS app, these changes cannot be made yet.
