Your Netflix account gives you the opportunity to create different profiles within it. These profiles make it easier to maintain recommendations based on your viewing preferences without someone else’s watch history affecting them. It also lets you maintain your place when watching a TV show in case someone else using your account is watching the same show.

But, over time, you may wind up with a lot of profiles, some of which are no longer necessary. All of these profiles can crowd the login screen when you want to use Netflix on your computer, mobile device, or set-top streaming device, so you may be looking for a way to get rid of them. Our guide below will show you how to delete a profile from your Netflix account through a Web browser.
