How to use Netflix codes?
If you know the Netflix Secret Code of your favorite Genre, then it’s quite easy to navigate and find the movies you like the most. Using the Netflix Codes doesn’t need any advanced tools or even it isn’t a long process that will take time.
Just adding the secret code behind the URL will take you to that category.

This is the URL, up to genre the URL remains same, and you can replace the “1234” with any of the secret code, and on pressing enter, the URL will redirect you to that sub category.

Why should we use Netflix Codes?
It would be wise to say, you’ll need more than one lives to stream the entire Netflix library. Netflix is the sole platform, that has hundreds of thousands of videos, shows, movies, and many more things to watch.
To sort it out, Netflix has created secret codes, whenever a new movie or show is added to the Library, it is tagged with specific category, and that category has sub-category. Furthermore, the sub-category has a secret code, that could take right to that path to the category that you’re interested.
Therefore, instead of exploring the library, why not use the secret code and find the movies and shows that you really want to watch, unless you don’t have any clue what to watch.
How are Netflix secret codes created?
Netflix has assigned every genre and sub-genre a Secret Code. Whenever, any movie or show is added to the Netflix Library, it’s been tagged under particular category and sub-category to make sure, end-user gets what he or she is looking for in right place. Netflix has created a criteria and documented guidelines by the name of Netflix Quantum Theory, with all the mentioned factors and features, the movie is further tagged in particular category.
They even tag the characters, metadata, locations, plot, and numerous contents and later with the help of human intelligence and artificial intelligence, a video is categorized. The algorithm is trained to bifurcate the videos, and rest is the history.
