New Netflix feature neat as a PIN
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.
