Netflix profiles allow different users to have individual and unique experiences on the same account. Creating, editing or deleting a profile is quite simple and can be done from both mobile and PC.

According to the company, a single account can have up to five different users. They each feature their own custom suggestions, playback settings, and age rating.

With the exception of Kids for desktop, they all also have their own list of recently watched titles and those you want to see. As well as title ratings (liked or not) and particular language preferences.
