Netflix has recently announced a new feature on its platform called Profile Transfer. This new feature will enable users to transfer various details related to their Netflix profile, such as personal recommendations, viewing history, My Lists, saved games and other settings, to a new account.
Password sharing is a common practice among Netflix users. People share their Netflix account passwords with their friends, partners and family members, which enables them to use a single paid account to watch content on the platform. Users differentiate different accounts through profiles, which can have their own watch list and receive personalized recommendations that are tailored to their likes and dislikes. While this works for users in general, things can get a little awkward if they decide to part ways with the person they are sharing their Netflix account with. Simply put, no one wants to see a friend’s name in their Netflix accounts, especially when they are no longer friends.
For situations like these, the company is rolling out a profile transfer feature that will enable non-paying users to create a new account without losing their personal data.
As far as availability is concerned, Netflix has started rolling out this feature to its users around the world. The company also said that it will notify users when this feature is available in their accounts.
So, if you want to transfer your Netflix profile, here is what you have to do.
