Netflix Hacks

Netflix is perhaps the most popular OTT platform that drags millions of viewers to watch regular web series and movies. You’ve subscribed to this famous streaming station, but have you ever wondered if you’re getting the most of your subscription facilities? Several hacks help you find the best content and make it convenient for you to watch the videos. Let’s get familiar with the top 5 Netflix hacks that will blow your mind.

You Can Download The Content And Watch Offline 

You want to watch season 2 of your favorite web series, but you’re going on a vacation! In such situations, you can download the content and save it on your device. In this way, you can watch the series later in the flight or in a remote location with a poor internet connection. But does Netflix allow you to download all the movies available there? NO! You cannot download. Few series and films are licensed for live streaming only, and sadly you can’t watch them later. However, you can browse the series available for download and prepare a list. You can find more if you want to know how to watch Netflix offline legally on Mac. Before you start downloading the content, make sure to pick the preferred video quality from the given options. 

There Are Secret Codes

As you log in to your Netflix account, the platform keeps recommending you different content based on your previous search history. But you’ll get bored if you do not find content from other genres. For instance, Netflix can recommend comedy movies, but how will you find some dark comedy series? You can use 869 to access the dark comedy genre. These codes personalize your search, and you can directly land on the genre you love. For example, if you want to watch movies starring Matthew McConaughey, you can use code 354. Now the question is how to use the secret code? Let’s check out the following steps:

  • Go to the ‘Browser’
  • Sign in to your existing Netflix account
  • Select the address bar and type https://www.netflix.com/browse/genre/[code]
  • Input the code and press enter

Watch Content From Other Countries 

Netflix maintains a territorial license, and thus the list of web series and movies is unique for different countries. Many viewers consider this feature wrong, but there are specific ways to access various countries’ Netflix content. What you can do is install a VPN on your mobile phone. According to Forbes, Netflix blocks most of the free VPNs, and thus you must get a paid VPN to watch the content. You need to follow the steps to use a VPN on Netflix.

  • Before everything else, install your VPN and switch it on. 
  • Next, you can select the preferred country to access the content library 
  • Now, you log in to your Netflix account and access the content catalog of the country you’ve chosen and voila!

Set Up Separate Profiles For The Same Account Users 

It is not a crime when more than one person accesses a Netflix account. You have an account, and all your family members can enjoy the content. Netflix allows up to five separate profiles for each account, and it costs no extra money for this procedure. 

When you use the same profile to watch Netflix content, the search list, Netflix recommendations keep changing automatically. It is funny when you want to watch a spine-chilling horror movie, but Netflix recommends Peppa Pig as your little one uses your profile too.  Apart from that, it is essential to set a pin code so that your kid fails to access adult content from your profile. When you use separate profiles, the preferences remain the same, and you can find content depending on the previous search list. 

How to set a pin to your Netflix profile? 

  • Sign in to your Netflix account.
  • Tap the profile icon and go to ‘Account’.
  • Scroll down and select ‘Profile and Parental Controls’.
  • Next, select the ‘Profile Lock’ option and then click ‘Change’.
  • Type your password and then click on ‘Continue’.
  • Now, set your pin and click ‘Save’.

Follow these steps, and you can easily set a pin to enhance your Netflix profile’s privacy. If you want to erase the pin, follow the same steps to make the changes. 

Watch Shows Together 

It feels great when you can watch new movies with your friends and family from different locations. Using the Netflix Party Chrome Extension, you can add up to 50 viewers to watch a particular show online. However, to access this facility, each of the viewers must have separate Netflix accounts. To start the watch party, follow the below steps –

  • Sign in to your Netflix account.
  • Select the movie you want to watch.
  • Click on NP as the Netflix Party Chrome Extension icon is red.
  • Start the party

You’ll receive a link that you need to share with your friends to join the party. 

Hope these Netflix hacks come to good use and you make the most of your subscription!
