Netflix is one of the most popular Over-the-Top Streaming Services. It streams over 10,000 shows, movies, documentaries, anime, and other titles on its internet-connected devices. It is a subscription-based streaming service known for its vast library of global and original content.

Nowadays, we have a long list of passwords to remember, as not only our email IDs but other apps and websites have passwords. These include Amazon, Flipkart, Swiggy, Zomato, Ola, Uber, and all the OTT platforms. This makes it common for Netflix account users to forget their passwords. For moments like these, Netflix offers three simple ways to reset your password if you have forgotten it. Netflix subscribers can reset their passwords using email, SMS, or billing information.

In this article, we’ll talk about how one can reset their forgotten or lost Netflix password. Details about Netflix plans available and its new password-sharing policy are also included below.

This is a slightly more complicated way of setting a new password. For this method to work, you need the credit or debit card number you used to pay for a Netflix subscription.

  • Go to
  • Click on the ‘I don’t remember my email or phone’ option.
  • Key in the first and last name on the account.
  • Enter the card details, including the card number being used for the account.
  • Click on ‘Find Account’.
  • Suppose Netflix is able to find your account. In that case, you will get a reset email on your email ID associated with the account.

For those unaware, Netflix recently strengthened its password-sharing policy so that one Netflix subscription owner isn’t able to share his/her password with endless people. While Netflix became aware of this trend a few years ago, the OTT giant recently changed its password-sharing policy to limit free viewing of content.

According to new rules, one can share his/her password with anyone residing in the same household. Those not living together won’t be able to share passwords. Suppose all family members live together in the same house. In that case, they can easily log into Netflix and access their profile on the same account. If any of them moves out and has to watch Netflix from somewhere else, they can still do it but will have to follow a verification process. The new rule was first implemented in the US, followed by other countries.
