Do you want to create a new Netflix profile for someone in your household? Or do you want a new viewing experience, activity list, and preferences? In any case, you can create a new profile on your Netflix account. Follow our quick guide below, and we’ll show you how.


On Netflix, users can have up to five profiles on their accounts. Each profile you create on the app is independent of one another in terms of preferences, activities, restrictions, shows list, and other options.

Depending on the subscription plan on your account, users can use these different profiles to use Netflix at the same time. Standard subscriptions allow users to stream on two separate devices at the same time, while Premium users can watch on 4 different ones.
