How to cancel Netflix
A step-by-step guide to canceling your account.
Streaming services don’t always make their cancellation procedures clear. Thankfully, you can cancel your Netflix subscription with little hassle.
Canceling your Netflix account
- Sign in to Netflix.
- Click the down arrow at the top right of the page, next to your profile name.
- Select the Account section.
- Under Membership and billing, click the gray Cancel membership box.
- Click Finish cancellation to confirm you want to cancel.
And there you have it: You’re now unsubscribed from Netflix. You can use your Netflix account until the end of your current billing period or free trial.
If you can’t see the option to cancel your membership in the account page, you’re being billed by a third party. If that’s the case, on your Account page you will see either a link to guide you through the cancelation process with your billing company or instructions to contact your billing company to cancel.
Note: After you cancel your account, you can return to Netflix anytime. All you need to do is sign in with your credentials and choose the “Restart Membership” option from your Account page. Your viewing activity, ratings and recommendations will be available for 10 months after your account closes.
