Unfortunately for the streaming giant, "How to cancel Netflix" is a trending search query on Google, but fortunately for you, we have a step-by-step guide that can free you from Netflix's subscription shackles.
If you're planning on jumping ship, you're not the only one. Following the change to restrict password sharing (in short: you need to log on from your home IP every month or you will be locked out...weird, I know), searches for how to cut the cord on Netflix spiked.
According to The New York Times, Netflix lost 200,000 subscribers in the first three months of 2022, and chances are this wave of people leaving is going to grow even higher.

How to cancel Netflix
Other platforms may make you jump through hoops to deter you from cancelling their service, but Netflix makes it surprisingly easy for subscribers to cut ties from its monthly membership.
1. Make sure you're logged into your Netflix account.
2. Click on your profile icon on the top right.
3. Click on "Account."
4. Under "Membership & Billing," click on "Cancel Membership."
Of course, as with most cancellation processes, you'll come across some messages designed to convince you, Netflix's valued paying customer, to stick around and keep your subscription. You may see a window asking if you'd like to downgrade instead. If you're still determined to cancel your membership, continue to step five.
5. Click on "Finish cancellation."
Your cancellation will be effective at the end of your current billing period. For example, if your next payment would have been due on February 15, you can keep watching your favorite shows and films until that date.
