Netflix, one of the most-watched and loved OTT platforms across the globe, is working hard to maintain its popularity in many ways. Whether anyone has subscribed to Netflix or not, sharing of Netflix account login credentials between family members and friends has ensured that almost everyone is watching its programmes! Even with the highest subscription, five different profiles can watch Netflix at one time on different screens. But besides the movies and web-shows, Netflix has several tips and tricks to make your viewing experience even more exciting. From locking your profile to removing watch history, we have listed here the best Netflix tips and tricks for you.

Netflix Tips and tricks

You can remove your Watch History

No one likes to let other users of the same profile to know what are you watching. Netflix gives you the option of not disclosing your viewing content to everyone who has access to your Netflix account. To remove an episode or movie from your watch list, move towards your Account and tap on Viewing Activity. Here, you will be able to check your entire watch history. You can either remove a particular movie or web-show from the list or can even hide the entire viewing activity by tapping on the 'Hide All' button.

Lock your profile

If you don't want to let anyone else access your profile without your permission, then Netflix has a solution for you. You can lock your profile with a 4-digit Profile Lock PIN. How? To do so, open your browser and go to the Account page. Move towards the Profile & Parental Controls settings and select the Profile lock which will give you the option to enter your password. Following that, tick the Require a PIN checkbox and then save it. Now, you will be able to access your profile with this password only.

Add IMDb rating to Netflix

Are you one of those who check the IMDb ratings of the content before watching it? Then, this will be a great hack for you! Well, with the Chrome extension, Enhancer for Netflix allows you to add IMDb ratings directly to your Netflix content. Now you can simply analyse which are the top IMDb rated shows instead of visiting Google separately to search about the show or movie.

Don't let Netflix eat your Mobile data

Watching Netflix on Wi-fi can be a stress-free experience without worrying about the internet. But what if you are using mobile data? We often find Netflix using a lot of data. So to manage your data while streaming Netflix on your phone, simply go to the App Settings and tap on Mobile Data usage. Then select the Save Data option. Also, to ensure that Netflix doesn't download the content with your Mobile data, you can enable Wi-fi Only option.
