Secret Codes For Netflix

Secret Codes For Netflix
28 February 2017

You may have come across posts about Secret Codes for Netflix and wondered what it's all about. Basically, you can search for movie genres that you didn't even know existed on Netflix, thus giving you an unbelievable amount of choice. You can never have too much Netflix and chill!

How does one use a secret Netflix Code?

When browsing on the Netflix website, an URL is generated when you click on a particular genre like www.netflix.com/browse/genre/ 6384 <<< the numbers in bold make the 'genre code'. For instance '6384' is the code for 'Tearjerkers'.

To bring up the genre of your choice, simply change those numbers in the URL to the code.

Note: You must be logged into your Netflix account from a desktop computer for the secret codes to work.
