How to delete a Netflix profile on PC, mobile, and TV

Have you maxed out your profiles? Make room for more.

Published onMay 5, 2023

Profiles allow friends and families sharing a Netflix account to have a personalized streaming experience. However, you may soon have to pay extra for password sharing. Each account can have up to five profiles, so there may be times when you need to make room for a new one as people come and go. Here’s how to delete a Netflix profile on any device in two simple steps.


To delete a Netflix profile, navigate to your Manage Profiles page from the Netflix website. Choose the profile you want to remove and select Delete Profile. You can add new profiles from here as well.


Deleting your Netflix profile

Before you delete your Netflix profile, there are some things you should know. First, the profile’s viewing history and activity will no longer be available once you remove it. So, if you’re in the middle of watching something and like to pick up where you left off or retain your watchlist for what to watch next, you should transfer your profile to a new account.

Additionally, you cannot delete the main profile on your Netflix account. For that, you will have to cancel your subscription entirely.

Ready to delete a profile? Open Netflix on your TV or streaming device and highlight the profile you want to manage. Move down to select the Edit icon beneath it.
