Netflix will start automatically deleting inactive accounts
The Netflix movie store will soon begin work to purify its user subscriber list by automatically deleting all accounts that have been inactive for 2 years or more, if you have a Netflix account but have not used it. It’s been a long time, so check your email because you may have received a notification from Netflix.
Netflix announces that it will automatically cancel all accounts of people who have not signed in to the service for a long time. According to the company: “What we don’t want most is that users have to pay for something they don’t use.”
Starting this week, Netflix will email subscribers who haven’t viewed any content on the platform to confirm whether they still want to maintain an account. If users do not confirm that they want to continue making payments, Netflix will automatically cancel their subscription. Of course, all those who have their accounts deleted can still register again at any time. In addition, if you subscribe to Netflix again within 10 months after being canceled, your favorites, profiles and some other information will remain the same.

Meanwhile, we hope this new method will help people save some of the money they’ve worked hard to earn.”
