How To Delete Your Netflix Account in 2022 | NEW Complete Guide

Are you wondering how to delete your Netflix account for good? In this tutorial, we’ll show you the easy steps to do that. The entire process will only take a few minutes.

Reasons to cancel your Netflix account

There are many different reasons why someone wants to delete Netflix, either temporarily or permanently. The most common reason is the ever increasing Netflix membership price. Due to its market position and popularity, Netflix can afford to raise its prices often, which is of course not a welcome news for everyone.

Another reason why someone might quit Netflix is the availability of competitors. Some of these streaming services offer suites of movies that Netflix no longer have. For example, if you’re mainly getting a Netflix membership for your family, having Disney+ is a good alternative over Netflix.

Other reasons include Netflix cancelling titles that some people love. Movies and TV series in Netflix, except those owned by Netlfix themselves, come and go and so people may find the service undesirable after some time. 

Other reasons can be personal vanity or even due to political positions. Whatever your own reason is for cancelling Netflix, this guide should walk you through the process.

How to delete your Netflix Account in 2022?

Cancelling your Netflix account for good can be done in a few minutes. Keep in mind though that this guide is about deleting your Netflix account and not merely your Netflix profile. A Netflix profile lets a member under your Netflix account to have a separate experience from the rest of the group. Deleting a profile won’t delete your account.
Follow these steps on how to delete your Netflix account:

  1. Open a web browser and sign in to the Netflix account that you want to delete.

  2. Click on your profile icon at the upper right.

  3. Select Account.

    This should take you to your Netflix account page.

  4. Click on Cancel Membership.

  5. Click on Finish Cancellation.

Once you’ve clicked the Finished Cancellation button, Netflix will begin the process of deleting your Netflix account once the current billing period is over. All your account information will be purged from Netflix servers 10 months after you’ve cancelled your account. 

If you change your mind though and you want to restart your Netflix subscription before the 10-month grace period is over, you can regain full access to your old profiles and preferences as if nothing happened.
