How to Set a PIN on Individual Netflix Profiles

Netflix ​​implemented the ability to set a specific code (PIN) for each access profile linked to a single account. This feature has been designed to ensure greater parental control over content that children can view. It can also limit access to your profile. This way, you don’t have to worry about anyone messing with your viewing history and movie suggesstions.

All Netflix accounts are protected by a password, but there is no type of protection within each profile created. With this feature, each user can set a PIN on their profile to prevent others from using it.

Netflix accounts are often shared in the family (and not only) without any type of protection for the individual profiles created, allowing any user who has access to the account to enter the profiles of others without any limitation. The same also applies to kids, who can easily access their parents’ profiles and avoid any kind of filtering or blocking of content.lock Netflix profile
