Sharing your Netflix account

A Netflix account is meant to be shared in one household (people who live in the same location with the account owner).

Share Netflix with someone who doesn’t live with you

People who are not in your household will need to sign up for their own account to watch; or in some countries you can buy an extra member and add them to your account.

Add an extra member
Account owners on a Standard or Premium plan in some countries can share Netflix with someone who doesn’t live with them by adding an extra member to their account.

  • The extra member sub-account will first need to be approved by and paid for by the account owner who invited them to join their Netflix. 

  • The extra member must create their sub-account in the same country where the account owner created their account.

  • Extra members cannot be added to Netflix-included packages or third-party billed accounts.

When starting a new account or adding an extra member, members can transfer a profile from an existing account, including recommendations, viewing history, My List, saved games, settings, and more.
