How to Cancel Your Netflix Subscription

Some subscription services require you to call customer support to cancel, but the process of leaving Netflix is fairly straightforward. In fact, you can quit Netflix in just a few clicks.  Keep reading to find out everything you have to do.

How to cancel your Netflix subscription

Here are the steps to cancelling your Netflix subscription:

  1. Log into your account and hover over your profile image.
  2. From the drop down menu, click Account.
  3. At the top of the page under the Membership & Billing header, click the “Cancel Membership”.
  4. Confirm your cancellation. You’ll be able to continue using Netflix until the end of your current billing cycle.

The process is similar on all devices, whether you use PCs, smartphones, or tablets. If it happens that you have any issues with cancelation, contact customer service. Read our Netflix customer support guide to learn how to get in touch with the agents.

Can I restart my Netflix subscription later?

Netflix will save your viewing history and all your other account data for up to ten months. If you restart your membership at any point within that time frame, it’ll seem as if you never left.

After ten months, Netflix will erase your data. However, you still have the option to rejoin Netflix. You’ll just need to sign up for a new account.
