If you received a password reset required email from Netflix, do the following to change it and get back to watching Netflix.
Click or tap the set a new password button in the email. Or for extra security, you can instead visit Netflix.com, select "sign in," and then select “Need help?”
Enter a new password that you haven’t used before. You will not be able to use your old password and will get an error message if you attempt to update it to your old one.
Your new password should be:
Unique to Netflix and not used for other websites or apps
At least 8 characters long
A combination of letters, numbers, and symbols using both upper and lower-case letters
Not easily guessed - such as “password,” “12345,” or your personal information (name, birthday, address)
A password manager can make it easier to keep track of unique passwords.
You should change your password regularly. Update it from your Account page, or you can send yourself a password reset email or text message.
If you see the message This password is not secure or is too common when resetting or changing your password, it means that the password you chose is on a list of compromised or commonly used passwords which we don't allow for security reasons. You’ll need to choose a different one.
Choose Sign out of all devices during the reset process.
If your old Netflix password was used for other web sites or apps, we recommend that you also create unique passwords for those sites.
We sometimes reset account passwords due to:
data breaches at other companies
suspicious account behavior
