If you are logged in to the Netflix website or its dedicated application via your smartphone or tablet, you can find the password to access the service by relying on the password memorization functions present on the devices in question.

How to reset your Netflix password

Despite following the procedures outlined in the previous chapters, were you still unable to find your Netflix password? If this is the case, it is almost certain that you have never given your consent to save the login information for this service. In that case, the only alternative left to you is to do the password reset. Find out how to proceed in the following lines.

Reset password from PC

If you use Netflix on your PC, via your web browser or the desktop application for Windows 10, the password reset procedure is very simple.

So, open your browser and get to this link, which refers to the section to recover login credentials for a Netflix account. You will be offered two methods of recovery: via email is via SMS. As for the latter method, although more practical, it is not certain that you can use it, as you need to have added aphone number to your profile and, unfortunately, this procedure is not carried out during the account creation phase.

However, if you have already added a phone number, by selecting the Text Message (SMS) entry, you will be prompted to enter thephone number associated with the account for which you wish to reset the password. In a few moments, you will receive an SMS with a code that will allow you to reset your password, following a brief on-screen procedure.

If you choose, instead, the Email option, you just have to type the email address associated with your Netflix account and, after performing this operation, carefully follow the instructions contained in the email message you will receive.

What you will need to do is press the button or link provided in the message received and use the appropriate text boxes on the web page you are shown, to enter the new password you will use to access your account.

If you have not associated any phone number with your account and have no idea what email address you used during registration, the only alternative left is to click on the I can't remember my email address or phone number wording.

In this case, you will be asked for information about the account owner: first name, last name and Credit or debit card number used for the subscription.

Are you still unable to access this information because you are a Netflix subscriber through a partner company? In this case, all you have to do is access the Netflix help area and use the search engine to type in the company name. This will take you to the Netflix FAQ tab on the indicated partner company, with information on how to reset your password as well.

However, if you have any problems, you have two alternatives: contact Netflix, through the tips I have given you in this guide of mine, or contact the partner company, if you are a Netflix subscriber through a third-party service.

Reset password from smartphones and tablets.

On smartphones and tablets, it is not possible to change the password to Netflix through the dedicated app. The procedure to follow requires access from a web browser to the credentials recovery section, which is identical to the one I have already described to you.

So, all you have to do, therefore, is to read carefully all the tips and procedures that I have provided you a moment ago, to make sure you can reset your Netflix account password without any problems.

Reset TV password

Do you watch Netflix content through the application available on Smart TV? In this case, know that, in addition to following the procedures I described above, you can also reset the password through the functionality built into the Netflix app for Smart TV.

Be warned that you will be able to start this procedure from the Smart TV, but you will still need to continue through a web browser. Start, which you will find on the home screen after launching the Netflix app.

Once this is done, click on the wording Forgot your password and enter the email address associated with your Netflix account. Now, press the After button and confirm the message on the screen, to receive an email with the link to reset your account password.

At this point, log in to your email box and follow the instructions provided to continue with your password reset. This procedure is similar to the one I have already described to you in this chapter, which also contains other information on how to proceed with password recovery using other methods that are not available in the Smart TV application.
