If, like me, you spend an inordinate amount of time watching Netflix, you owe it to yourself to set things up the way you want them. Here are three great places to start. All it takes is a minute or two.

Disable Autoplay Previews

The bane of every Netflix user’s existence, the auto-playing preview feature can (and should!) be turned off.

To do this, you need to log into your Netflix account from a web browser, click on your profile picture in the top right corner, and click the Account link.

From there, navigate to the Profile and Parental Controls section. Select a profile and go to the ‘Playback Settings’ section. At the top of that page, uncheck “Automatically play previews when browsing on all devices.”

You have to adjust this setting for each profile, so if you live with a sociopath who is actually… enjoy the autoplay previews, you can turn them off for your profile and leave them on for others.

Lock your profile with a PIN code

What’s the point of having separate profiles if everyone just randomly accesses someone else’s profile?

This setting is especially useful if you’ve set up a profile for your kids and don’t want them to have access to your endless parade of horrifying true documentaries.

Follow the same path as the previous tip, click on your profile picture, choose Account, select the profile you want to lock, and then choose the Profile Lock option.

Re-enter your password, then check the box to require a PIN. Enter a four-digit PIN and, if this is the main profile for all other profiles, check the “Need PIN to add new profiles” box as well.

From now on, the profile selection screen will have a small lock icon below your profile and whoever tries to access your profile will need to know your PIN to get in.

Clear the ‘Continue Watching’ queue

If you’ve been subscribed to Netflix for quite some time, your Continue Watching row is probably a graveyard of shows and movies you gave up halfway through.

It’s easy to delete content you’re no longer interested in, but how you do it will depend on whether you’re watching through the browser, a mobile app, or a smart TV.

In the browser, find the show you want to delete, hover your mouse over it and click the little X in the pop-up menu.

In the Netflix app on Android and iOS, find the show you want to delete, click the small three-dot icon in the lower-right corner, and select “Remove from Row.”

And finally, most smart TVs need an extra step. You actually have to click on the show you want to delete, then go down arrow in the left navigation and choose ‘Delete from continue watching’.
