How to Lock a Netflix Profile with a PIN

Netflix finally allows you to protect your profile with a PIN. This is very useful if you have children who use your account. You can lock your adult profile with a PIN, ensuring children can only use their own profile.

To find this option, visit the Netflix website, mouse over your profile icon in the upper-right corner of the screen, and click “Account” to find your account settings.

1
Under Parental Profile & Control, click the arrow to the right of the profile you want to limit.

2
Click the “Change” button to the right of “Profile Key.” If no PIN is set, this feature will be “Disabled”.

3
You must enter your Netflix password. If you share an account with someone else, anyone with your Netflix password can visit this page and change or delete the PIN.

4
Check the “Require PIN to access [Name] profile” box and enter the four digit numeric passcode.

If you like, you can also activate “Requires [Name] PIN to add a new profile.” This will prevent people from creating a new profile on your Netflix account unless they know your PIN.

Click the “Save” button to activate the PIN you chose.

5
After finishing using Netflix, you can open the menu and select “Exit Profile” to exit your profile.

6
When someone chooses a locked profile, they must enter the PIN you chose before they can access it.

7
With Netflix parental controls, you can also filter content based on age ranking by profile. Click the “Change” button next to “View restrictions” above the “Lock profile” option for the account on the Account settings page to access this option

Now, with a PIN, you can make sure children will stick to their own profile and not step back and open your profile.
