What are Netflix codes?

Netflix codes are based on a system of numbers that correspond to a different genre or subgenre, which the algorithm uses to categorize and offer recommendations. For example, instead of scrolling through Horror, you can search Small Town Scares (81496215) for more specific results.

So far, Netflix has around 36,000 codes. Note that the codes can only be redeemed on the Netflix website and not in its apps.

How to redeem Netflix codes?

2. Click on Add to Chrome.
3. Click on Add extension.
4. Log in to your Netflix account in a new tab.

Another way is to use the Netflix codes website. Here’s how:

1. Visit on your PC or mobile browser.
2. Find the genre or subgenre you want to explore.
3. Press the code next to the genre or subgenre of your choice.
4. If you’re using a device that has the Netflix app installed, the app should open and take you directly to the genre or subgenre you chose. If you haven’t installed the app, it will open Netflix through the browser and you can see the specific movies and shows available.
5. Press the Title you want to watch.

You can also redeem Netflix codes manually in your browser. Here’s how:

1. Visit on your PC or mobile browser.
2. Find the genre or subgenre you want to explore.
3. In another tab, enter but replace INSERT NUMBER with the specific genre or subgenre code.
4. You will be redirected to Netflix to browse the titles available in this section.

From there, you can either mentally jot down the movie you want to watch and return to the app on your preferred device, or sign in to watch it in your browser.
