Netflix secret codes: access secret movies and TV series with these numbers

A collage of titles of Netflix shows and exclusives

Did you know you can find secret genres in Netflix using some special codes? The streaming service offers many of the broad categories, like fantasy movies or kids movies, but can be a little frustrating for more specific queries. These codes change all that.

Using short inputs, you can find all the Netflix movies on some very particular descriptors. Maybe it’s anime horror you’re after, or family movies for age zero to two, or what about teen comedy movies, and non-english language documentaries? Those filters are now available to you from the touch of a button – or five or so buttons, to be precise.

Should be noted that these numbers only work on the browser version of Netflix – you can’t use them through the app on your phone, games console, or smart TV. Disappointing, we know, but you can always use the browser to discover what you want to watch, then add it to your queue. There are no rules here, only more ways to find the best movies and TV series. Do with this information to create the best viewing experience for you!
