How can I share movies and TV shows with someone?

Netflix offers a way to share your favorite movies and TV shows with your friends and family. This sharing is optional and uses the standard sharing tool that comes on most mobile and tablet devices, including:

  • Apple iPad, iPhone, and iPod touch

  • Android Mobile/Tablets

We no longer offer social sharing features through Facebook. If you previously connected your account to Facebook, you can still sign in using Facebook and your Facebook profile picture will continue to be your Netflix profile picture. If you would like to disconnect from Facebook, see below. Note that once you disconnect, you will not be able to reconnect in the future.
