Netflix has rolled out a new feature in the recent update which lets you lock your profile using a 4-digit pin to prevent other users from viewing your profile. This feature comes along with Parental control in the recent update. With this new PIN lock feature for your profile, you can lock your personal profile in your Netflix account to prevent your friends or family who use the same account from using your profile to view content which mixes up the recommendations. If you have kids or elders using your account and by setting a PIN to your profile you can make sure that they do not see your recommendations or your viewing History.
Let us look at how you can set a PIN code to your personal profile in the Netflix account to secure your profile.

Step 1: Go to Netflix.com from your smartphone or Laptop/PC web browser
