Netflix finally lets you protect profiles with a PIN. This is especially useful if you have children that use your account. You can lock your adult profile with a PIN, ensuring children can only use their own profiles.
To find these options, head to the Netflix website, mouse over your profile icon at the top-right corner of the screen, and click “Account” to find your account settings.
Under Profile & Parental Controls, click the arrow to the right of the profile you want to restrict.
Click the “Change” button to the right of “Profile Lock.” If no PIN is yet set, this feature will be “Off.”
You will have to enter your Netflix password. If you share your account with other people, anyone with your Netflix password can come to this page and change or remove the PIN.
Check the “Require a PIN to access [Name]’s profile” box and enter a four-digit numerical passcode.
If you like, you can also activate “Require [Name]’s PIN to add new profiles.” This will prevent people from creating new profiles on your Netflix account unless they know your PIN.
Click the “Save” button to activate your chosen PIN.
When you’re done using Netflix, you can open the menu and select “Exit Profile” to sign out of your profile.
When someone selects a locked profile, they’ll have to enter your selected PIN before they can access it.
With Netflix’s parental controls, you can also filter content by age rating based on profiles. Click the “Change” button next to “Viewing restrictions” above the “Profile lock” option for an account on the Account settings page to access these options
Now, with PINs, you can ensure children will stick to their own profiles and not back out and open yours.
