We explain how to delete a profile on Netflix | Digital Trends Spanish
Do you want to know how to delete a profile on Netflix? Fortunately, the process is almost as simple as creating a new one, and there is more than one way to do it.
First, keep in mind that you don’t have to discard a profile to delete a viewing history. If the latter is what you want to do, you have to open your computer and go to the page of viewing activity (located in the account management) to delete everything you have seen (and that you do not want others to know you saw).
Delete the account from your PC
First, you will need to log into your Netflix account. If you are using a mobile phone, you will want to use the Netflix app to iOS or Android instead of a browser. If you are on a computer, you are probably already connected, but if not, go to Netflix and press Log in, located in the upper right corner.
Once you’re inside, it might ask you to select a profile. Simply choose the profile you use, click the icon in the upper right corner to open a drop-down menu, then select Manage profiles.
Next, find the profile you want to delete and click on the pencil icon in the center. You will see a menu that looks like this:
Click on Delete profile, then on the next screen, press Delete profile again. Now that profile and your viewing history are a thing of the past.
Then you will automatically return to the screen Manage profiles; click on Ready to return to the screen Profile selection.
From a smartphone or tablet
You can also delete profiles from the Netflix mobile app. Open it and select the button Log in, located in the upper right corner. Once you enter your information, you will see the Profile selection. Go to the upper right corner, where it says Edit.
Press the option Edit and you will see little pencil icons that will appear in each profile. Touch the profile you want to delete, and then select Remove (You will see a little trash can icon there). Next, you will see a screen that says “are you sure?” Just confirm your decision and voila! Say goodbye to the profile you selected. Now you can watch the best shows and the best movies that the streaming service has.
From a streaming device or Smart TV
The process for deleting a Netflix profile on a streaming device (like a Roku or Amazon Fire TV) or smart TV varies depending on the operating system running on your device. However, regularly, it is quite easy to understand.
Open your Netflix app, and the profile selection screen will usually offer a method to remove it (for example, the Netflix app for Roku has little pencil icons that you can locate below the profile icons). Failing that, try to find a Settings screen and explore. If this option doesn’t work either, you may need to use a computer or mobile device.
