    What to Do After Canceling Your Netflix Subscription

    Once you cancel your Netflix subscription you can renew it at any time. But this also means that anyone who has your account information can do it too. If you want to prevent your friends and family from subscribing for you, the best thing is to change your password. Do it after canceling your subscription so no one can have access to it and no one but you can restart the monthly fee.

    Also, remember that Netflix keeps all your account information even after you unsubscribe, and not only your login credentials and payment method but also your viewing history, account profiles, and your favorite shows and movies. If you want, you can email Netflix and ask them to delete your personal info or you can delete your Netflix account too. Send an email to privacy@netflix.com. But be sure to use the email address you used to subscribe in the first place.
