Netflix is getting protective day by day, improving every part of security to their users while adding new shows and movies all the way. The recent Netflix update brings an ability to add a Netflix profile lock, which simply gives you control over your Netflix account.

However, the process can only take place on the PC, it can be done on the Netflix app. So make sure you are connected to the internet on the laptop or PC.
