How to remove series and movies from continuing to watch on Netflix
This is one of the questions that many users ask themselves. If you have started watching something that has not finished convincing you, most likely you want to remove it from the Continue Watching section. Fortunately, it is possible to do this from your account management, after selecting a profile. Go to the Viewing Activity section and easily remove any item from your history.
How to create and manage profiles in Netflix
Profiles will help you separate the viewing of all users who use an account. How do you manage them and what options are available to you? It’s as simple as accessing the account from the official Netflix website. Then, click on Manage profiles. A pencil icon will appear above each avatar. Use that button to enter the options for each of them. From there you will be able to do the following:
- Change the profile picture. Remember that you can only use the application’s own designs.
- Change the language. Each profile can be in its own language.
- Change the type of content displayed according to age.
- Modify the behavior of the application in relation to playback.
- On the other hand, if you are looking to create a new profile, simply choose the Add profile option. Then, specify a name, an image, and if it is a child profile. When you click Continue, it will be created immediately.
How to try out the new Netflix features before anyone else does
The company launches some new features that it tests with small groups of users. In case you want to use the new features before anyone else, go to your account settings, open the Test Participation section and activate this setting. You will have to be very attentive to the changes introduced in order to notice them, as the company does not notify or mention to the users who participate in the tests what the new features are.
How to download content from Netflix
Downloading movies and series from Netflix are very easy. All you need is one of their apps for Windows 10, iPad, iPhone, or Android. Then, select a title, open it and tap on Download.

How to find out what’s new on Netflix
Netflix releases appear in the Coming Soon tab of your application.

How to sign out on all devices
Have you ever signed in with your account on a public device and don’t remember if you signed out when you left? This is a common problem, for example when using Netflix in hotels or tourist sites. When in doubt, the best thing to do is to log out in a generalized way. Accessing the account settings, click on Log out on all devices. Obviously, your account will also disappear from your TV or cell phone.
How to change your Netflix billing day
Your Netflix billing day coincides with the day you signed up for Netflix. If for some reason it’s not a good day to pay your fee, you can change it from your account settings by selecting Change Billing Day. After entering your password, change the day to the one that is more convenient for you.
How to turn off autoplay
