It’s easier than you might think. Follow the three steps in our guide, and you’ll cancel your Netflix in a few minutes.
How to Cancel Netflix from the Web
The easiest way to cancel Netflix is from the web. Some devices may require you to log in to cancel your subscription, making it the best place to start.
1. Log into Netflix
The first step to canceling Netflix is to log into the service. On a PC, you can go to Netflix and access your account. Once you log in, locate your user icon in the upper right corner of the screen and hover over it with your mouse to access a drop-down menu. Select Account to proceed to the next screen.
Make sure you are in the “main” account and not a secondary account for someone else in your household.
2. Access the Account Menu
Within the account menu, you can cancel Netflix or change settings on your membership, including the billing day. To start canceling your subscription to the streamer, click on the Cancel button, as shown below.
3. Cancel Netflix
From this screen, there is only one more step to end your subscription to Netflix. You have a chance to back out from here, if you’re having second thoughts. Once you click Finish Cancellation, the process is complete, and Netflix has been canceled.
