Netflix is one of the most popular video streaming services available online. Not only does it offer the ability to allow five people to watch videos in parallel, but it can also share with friends and share price. However, if you are all set to delete the Netflix account, this guide will share the exact steps.
Deactivate or delete the Netflix account
According to Netflix, an account is automatically deleted if it remains inactive for ten months, however, it may require deletion previously by e-mail. Before doing so, you will have to deal with some things. Account deletion is only possible from the web, not from within the app.
- Log in to your Netflix account and go to your account page.
- Click on the button “Cancel Membership” in Subscription and Billing. If you purchased the membership via Google Play or Netflix or any other service, be sure to cancel the subscription there. Depending on how many days you have left for the subscription to be complete, you may have to wait a few days.
- Contact firstname.lastname@example.org from the same email ID you use for Netflix. If you add the e-mail ID in the message body it will not work. To delete the account, mention it in the email immediately.
Delete the phone number and profiles
As it’s letting go of the account, it’s best to remove the phone number. It will ensure you receive no promotional message. On your account page, go to the link Change phone number in the Membership and billing section and choose to delete the phone number. Similarly, to delete profiles, which follows the display of habits, click Manage Profiles => select the edit icon on the profile you want to delete and press the button Delete profile.
What about payment methods after removing the Netflix account?
Once the account removal process is complete, all payment methods are removed from the servers. There is no way to selectively remove. However, you can choose to switch to another mode like Google Play to protect your card details.
