How to make your Netflix profile private?

Netflix’s plans for multiple concurrent viewing sessions have made a lot of friends, as well as family members, subscribe to a single plan, which is then shared among all. While this saves money, it can also intrude your privacy as other people in your account can access your profile too and see what you’re watching or have in your list.

If you want to keep your Netflix entertainment hidden from the other people who share your account, you can make your Netflix profile private.
