How Do I Recover My Netflix Account?

The easiest way to recover your Netflix account is by reading these helpful tips.

If you are unable to access your Netflix account, it is possible to recover the password and continue using your account. You can reset your email address using a reset message sent to your email address. It is possible to recover your account even if you do not remember your email address or phone number. The easiest way to recover your account is by changing the password. Follow these steps to complete the process.

1. Go to Netflix website and click on the option help

2. Select the option 'Reset your password by Email.'

3. Enter the email address associated with your account and click on the option 'Email Me,'

4. You will receive an email with information about the reset procedure. Click on the link in the email and you will automatically sign in to your account

5. Create a new password for your account

This option will sign you out of other devices. You will need to enter your password every time you use the devices. This process may take a few hours.

The link you receive via email will only work for 4 hours, if you do not use it within that time, it may expire. When entering your new password, choose one that is strong and unique. Your new password cannot be the same as your old one. If you do not get the link, you can request for a new one from Netflix.

If you do not receive an email, check your spam folder and any filters that you may have.

If you still don't receive it, consider waiting for a few minutes. Your Email provider may be experiencing delays. If you do not receive the email in five hours, you should try again.
