Why Netflix asks, 'Are you still watching?’

Netflix asks, "Are you still watching ...?" so you don't lose your place or use internet data when you're not actually watching a TV show or movie.

The prompt appears:

  • After watching 3 episodes of a TV show in a row without using any video player controls, or

  • After 90 minutes of uninterrupted watching

To continue watching, you can dismiss the message or turn off autoplay of the next episode.
