The Netflix Profiles feature is an invaluable tool for anyone who wants to share the cost of his $ 10 per month Premium membership with his friends so you set up five different sub-accounts for the same e-mail address (at no extra cost), with four of them able to reconcile at the same time
Sometimes you have to delete a profile for whatever reason. But how? Fortunately, it's a simple process that should take no more than a few seconds, regardless of the device you use. Keep in mind that you do not have to delete a profile to delete the viewing history.
If that is what you are trying to do, you will not get any weird or inaccurate suggestions from Netflix, all you have to do is open your computer and go to the viewing activity page (under account management) to delete everything that you have not viewed (or don't want others to know you did it).
Remove from PC
You must first log in to your Netflix account. If you use a mobile phone, you want to use the Netflix app for iOS or Android instead of a browser. If you are on a computer, you are probably already logged in, but if not, go to Netflix and press Log in in the top right corner.
Once you are inside (you may be asked to select a profile; just select which profile you use personally), click on the icon in the top right corner to get a drop-down menu and then select Manage Profiles .
Then find the profile that you want to delete and click on the pencil icon in the middle. You will see a menu that looks something like this:
Click on Delete profile and then click on Delete profile in the next screen again. Poof! That profile and the viewing history are now, well, history. You automatically return to the screen Manage profiles ; click on Ready to return to the screen Profile selection .
Removing a smartphone or tablet
You can also bounce profiles from the mobile Netflix app. Open it and select Log in in the upper right corner. After you have entered your data, go to the screen Profile selection . Again, you go to the upper right corner, where it says Edit .
Tap it and small pencil icons appear on each profile. Tap the profile that you want to delete, and then tap Delete (you will see a trash can icon there). It gives you one of those "are you sure" screens, so confirm your decision and, voila! No more profile. You are now free to watch the best shows and films that the streaming service has on tap.
Removing a streaming device or smart TV
The process of removing a profile from a streaming device (such as a Roku Premiere or an Amazon Fire TV Cube) or a smart phone TV differs depending on which operating system is running on your chosen device. Usually, however, it is fairly easy to find out.
Open your Netflix app and the screen P rofile Selection usually offers a method for deletion (for example, the Roku Netflix app has small pencil icons that you can navigate to that are located under the profile icons). If this is not the case, try searching for and exploring a screen Settings .
Did it not work? You must use a computer or mobile device.
