Netflix is ​​a fairly easy-to-use platform. However, some manipulations are not necessarily obvious to detect. After you have detailed how to download a video to watch it offline, here's how to delete a profile, a Netflix account and a viewing history.



How to delete a Netflix profile

Follow these few steps to remove those Netflix profiles that you never use once and for all. You will see, the operation is quite simple, although let's face it, it is easy to miss it completely! If you are using a VPN to connect to the US Netflix site, the menus may be in English.

  • Open Netflix from your computer (no need to try on your PS4 or from the mobile app).
  • When the site asks you to choose a user profile (“Who is this?”), Click on Manage profiles. You can also access this menu from the home page by clicking on More (three horizontal bars).
  • Click on the profile to delete.
  • Click on Delete profile and confirm.
  • Click on Finished. 

Delete your movie history

Here again, you will need to connect to Netflix from a device with a web browser to be able to perform the manipulation. As you will see, it is not really possible to delete the entire history at once. But you can at least delete the entries you want, one by one.



  • Go to Netflix, and choose a user profile (any).
  • Click on your avatar at the top right, then on Account.
  • Find the Profiles and Parental Controls section and click History.
  • You can then hide each content viewed by clicking on the crossed out circle that nestles on the right.
  • Going down to the bottom of the page, you can also choose to hide everything. Be aware, however, that Netflix's recommendations will be much less relevant as a result of this manipulation.

How to delete your account permanently

  • Go to Netflix, and choose a user profile (any).
  • Click on your avatar at the top right, then on Account.
