New Net­flix fea­ture neat as a PIN

Central and North Burnett Times - - LIFE­STYLE -

NET­FLIX has added PINs to pro­files to stop fam­ily mem­bers or pals from mess­ing up your rec­om­men­da­tions.

We’re spend­ing more time at home than ever be­fore, so Net­flix is men­tal re­lief for many.

Now Net­flix has re­leased an up­date that qui­etly im­proves the app with handy fea­tures.

The head­line news is that you can now set a four-digit PIN on your pro­file.

That’s great for any­one who shares a Net­flix ac­count with fam­ily mem­bers, or pals in a house­hold.

When you watch Net­flix, the con­tent you view af­fects your rec­om­men­da­tions dra­mat­i­cally.

Other peo­ple us­ing your pro­file (if only by ac­ci­dent) can mean you re­ceive strange rec­om­men­da­tions you’d never be in­ter­ested in.

And if an­other per­son is watch­ing the same show as you, they could over­write your place in the se­ries.

You might also have a guilty plea­sure view­ing habit you don’t want oth­ers to know about.

In any case, up­date your app and then go into the set­tings to add a PIN and lock oth­ers out of your pro­file.

They’ll still be able to use their own pro­files... on your shared ac­count, of course.

The other big change is that Net­flix now lets par­ents fil­ter what con­tent their chil­dren can see.

It’s a ma­jor boost to Net­flix’s parental con­trols, and gives added peace of mind to users.
