Netflix: Change Password

This weekend, a friend somehow managed to acquire my Netflix password. Naturally, I had to change it. It took me a while to find where I could go on the website to change the password. After about 5 minutes, I finally figured it out.

From Desktop Browser

  1. Login to Netflix¬†and ensure the primary account holder’s name is selected in the upper-right corner of the screen. If you have forgotten your password, go to the Password Reset page and enter the email address for your account, then follow the directions in your email.
  2. Select your name in the upper-right corner, then choose “Your Account“.
  3. Select the “Update email and password” link.
  4. Type your “Current Password“, “New Password“, then “Confirm New Password”.
  5. Select “Save“.

From iOS & Android App

At the time of this writing, there is no way to change your password from within the iOS or Android Netflix App. If you have forgotten your password, you can select the “Forgot Your Password?” link on the sign-in screen. Otherwise, you can open Netflix in your web browser like Safari or Chrome and follow the steps above.

    Also, if you have multiple profiles you have to go the “My Account” from the primary account, or the first profile you set up. All other profiles won’t have the option to change the password.
