How to Delete Your Netflix Account The Easy Way

You don't use your Netflix account anymore. As a smart person, you would like to – after all, isn't it best to remove personal information from the internet whenever you can? Yet perhaps you don't remember that old password or email address you used for the account. Maybe the “you forgot your password” option wouldn't work because you no longer have access to the email address or phone number previously linked to the account.

Deleting old and unused online accounts is important but can be tricky and time-consuming when you have difficulty accessing them.

You may follow steps to attempt to accomplish this on your own – but DoNotPay offers a much easier, automated way to handle this if you wish.

Should I Bother Deleting My Old Netflix Account?

Getting rid of those unused accounts is a very good idea. The longer your old accounts sit around collecting dust, the more likely they will bring you trouble.

Data BreachesConsumer Reports has revealed that hackers and other malicious people commonly force their way into large collections of private data, including credit card information, phone numbers, and email addresses. Google+ and Myspace are two services that lost popularity and have experienced data breaches impacting millions of people who might not have used either service for years.
Identity TheftUnfortunately, your personal information might be used for identity theft if it is stolen through a data breach. Safeguarding against this crime may save you from potential heartache.
Password ReuseIf you have reused a password for multiple accounts, one data breach may expose it and provide the key to log in to your additional accounts.
Invisible TroubleSince you don't use older accounts, you are not likely to be monitoring any activity linked to them. If someone gains access, they could make changes to the account to attempt identity theft – all the more reason to get rid of it if you are not using it.
