How to Change Your Netflix Password

Last updated: May 28, 2015 - 11:32am EDT

It's important to keep your Netflix account secure.  As we went over in our Netflix Data Usage tutorial, overuse of Netflix can result in costly extra charges on your monthly telecom bill, so you're going to want to make sure that the only people who can access your account are those who can use it responsibly.  A core way to do this is by changing your Netflix password every now and then.

Steps to change a Netflix password

  1. Go to www.netflix.com in your web browser and log in.

  2. Move your mouse cursor over your name in the top-right corner and select Your Account from the drop-down menu.

  3. In the "Membership & Billing" section, click Change Password.

  4. Click in the box labelled "Current Password" and type in the password that you are using for your Netflix account right now.  Then click in the box labelled "New Password" and type in the password that you wish to use for your Netflix account going forward.  Then click in the box labelled "Confirm New Password" and type in a copy of the new password that you just picked.  (All of them will appear as bullet points to protect them from being seen by over-the-shoulder snoops.)



    You can also click the check box here to mark it, which makes it so that everyone who is currently logged into your account on Netflix is logged out and must log in again using the new password.  (This is useful if you think someone else is using your account without your permission.)  Then click Save.

That's how you change your Netflix password!  Be sure to write it down somewhere so that you don't forget it, and make sure that you keep it safe from anyone you don't want using your account!
