How to cancel Netflixon May 24, 2023 at 11:38 Tech Advisor


Netflix has announced plans to expand its curb on password sharing in the US and UK.

If you share the cost of Netflix with friends or family members in different households, this might be the sign to end your subscription – especially considering that the cost of Extra Members is $7.99/£4.99 per month.

We have all the steps you need for cancelling Netflix, whether its on PC, Android or iOS. If you are billed for Netflix via Google Play or iTunes, then you won’t be able to use the web method.

Handily, Netflix will keep details of what you watched during your time spent with the service for one whole year after you close your account, so you’ll be able to return to Netflix with all your personalised recommendations intact if you want to.

For other streaming alternatives, take a look at our comparison of the best streaming services. If you’d rather downgrade to a cheaper membership, then you can also check out our guide to Netflix plans.

We also have a cancellation guide for Now.
