Secret Netflix Hacks You Should Know

by Victoria Baker

The best way to get the most out of Netflix is to customize it with these often secret features mentioned below, which shouldn’t take too much technological knowledge to implement.  You may never have to leave your house again.

Hide your secret favorites from your viewing history

Maybe you don’t want your partner to realize you’ve been watching Breaking Bad without them, maybe your late-night film choice would conflict with the suggestions by the algorithm. Don’t panic, you can remove your data selectively. Go to your Account > Drop down your profile menu > Viewing Activity, where you can see what you’ve watched in chronological order and delete anything you want to hide.

Binge watch shows with friends

If you’re looking for a new way to communicate with friends and family, apps like the Netflix Party Chrome extension will help. After you’ve downloaded the extension, select the “NP” button that appears in your browser. When you finally decided on what you want to watch with your friends, you can create a special link to share. Anyone with the link receives an invitation to your “watch party.” When everybody has joined, a sidebar will show up so you can chat with your friend during the whole time.

Discover Secret Sub-Genres With Secret Codes

Netflix’s default labels like “Comedy” or “Horror” sometimes are too broad.  If you want to be far more precise, consider to use the giant encyclopedia with of over 20,000 unusual, rare, and exciting sub-genres. Refer to this list for the most popular codes that allow users to access Netflix’s subgenres. The  ID codes can be attached to the end of your Netflix URL to guide you to the paradise. The URL formula to use is:  https://www.netflix.com/browse/genre/INSERTNUMBER
