How to Turn Off Netflix Autoplay

YouTube player


By default, Netflix enables the autoplay feature that will automatically play the next episode or show in a series after you finish one, or a movie that’s related to one you just finished. While the Netflix autoplay feature is convenient, it can make it a little too easy to slip into a binge-watching session or movie marathon. Thankfully, if you want to remove the temptation, it’s easy to turn off Netflix autoplay. However, you have to turn the autoplay feature off through the Netflix website and you can’t do it through the various other Netflix platforms. Examples of all instructions in the steps can be seen in both the YouTube video above and the image collection located beneath the steps.
