The giant streaming platform, Netflix does not provide a feature that allows subscribers to stop autorenewal or auto payments on their Netflix account. However, there is a way to go about this. All you need to do is cancel your Netflix subscription just after making a payment. Upon canceling your Netflix subscription, you will still have viewing access to Netflix content until the end of the current billing period. Follow the step-by-step guide to stop autorenewal/auto payments on your Netflix account.

Step 1: Start your preferred browser on your phone or your computer. Go to and sign in to your account. You can also use the Netflix app on your phone.

Step 2: Click on your Netflix profile. Once the profile is launched, tap on the dropdown arrow next to the profile icon/picture. If you are using the app, click on More at the bottom menu.

Step 3: From the displayed menu, select Account.

Step 4: The Account page will load. Under Membership and Billing, click on “Cancel Membership.”

Step 5: On the next page, Netflix will require you to confirm cancelation. Click on “Finish Cancellation” to proceed with canceling your Netflix subscription.

Also, on the same page, Netflix will require you to select a reason for cancellation in order to improve services when you return back. Select all reasons that refer to your subscription cancellation then click Done. After that, you will be referred to the account page again.
