In a recent update of Netflix, the app introduced “Profile Transfers,” a feature that allows users to move an eligible profile to a new account. This feature allows you to continue everything you want to watch in a different account.

However, we understand that some of you don’t want to use the profile transfer feature on your accounts. To prevent other users that have access to your account from moving your profile without permission, you can disable the option on your account settings.
