How to Cancel Netflix
Some apps make it hard to cancel your account because they want you to get so frustrated with the process that you won't want to cancel. Netflix isn't one of these apps. You can cancel your Netflix account and subscription in a few minutes. Here's how.
How to Cancel Your Netflix Subscription on a computer
This is probably the method you'll want to use if you made your Netflix account through the website or a smart TV.
1. Open any web browser and go to https://www.netflix.com/browse. If you haven't already, sign in to your account.
2. Sign into your account.
3. Click the down arrow in the top right corner of the page, then click Account.
4. Click Cancel Membership near the top of the page, under "Membership and Billing," and confirm that you want to cancel.
5. If you still have a DVD plan, click Cancel your DVD plan and confirm that you want to end it as well.
If you don't see the option to cancel your account here, it means you signed up for Netflix through a third party. You should see information about who is in charge of your Netflix account.
How to cancel Netflix subscription on an iPhone or iPad
If you signed up for Netflix through an app on your iPhone or iPad, your account is probably linked to your Apple ID. In this case, you'll have to use the Apple ID menu to cancel.
1. On your iPhone or iPad, open the Settings app and tap your name at the top of the page.
2. Tap Subscriptions in the Apple ID menu that comes up.
3. Choose Netflix from the list that comes up, and then tap on Cancel Subscription.
4. Confirm your choice.
How to cancel Netflix subscription on Android
In the same way, if you signed up for Netflix through the Android app, it's probably linked to your Google account. This means you'll have to cancel through the Play Store app on your Android.
1. Open the Play Store app on your Android and tap the profile icon in the top right corner.
2. In the new menu, tap Payments & subscriptions, and then tap Subscriptions.
3. Choose Netflix from the list of subscriptions you have, and then choose Cancel Subscription.
4. Confirm your choice.
How to cancel your Netflix DVD plan
Do you still rent DVDs from Netflix? If that's the case, it should show up next to Plan Details on your Account page. Just click "Cancel your DVD plan" and make sure you want to do that.
How to cancel Netflix subscription via iTunes
You can cancel your Netflix subscription through iTunes on your iPad or iPhone.
Follow these five steps to stop being charged by iTunes:
1. Click [Your Name], then Settings, and then iTunes & App Store.
2. Tap your Apple ID, sign in if you need to, and then tap View Apple ID.
3. Scroll down and click "Subscriptions."
4. Tap on the Netflix subscription.
5. You can choose to change your current plan or click Cancel subscription at the bottom of the page.
You are no longer a Netflix subscriber, and your service will end at the end of your current billing cycle.
Netflix still has all of your personal information and what you've watched.
Netflix will keep your account information for 10 months after you cancel your subscription. That means that if you decide to restart your subscription within that time, your viewing history, account profiles, and favorite shows will still be there.
It makes sense that Netflix would keep this kind of information, but you'll need to take an extra step if you want all of your personal information deleted before the end of the 10-month period.
More specifically, you'll need to send an email to "[email protected]" from the email address that is linked to your Netflix account. Netflix won't accept requests from an email address other than the one linked to your account, even if the request mentions the email address. It needs to come from the same place.

What to do if you don't see an option to cancel
If you don't see the option to cancel your account, you'll need to contact your billing company to cancel the account. On your Account page, you'll see either a link to help you cancel with your billing company or instructions on how to cancel by calling your billing company.
