You may think you have finished everything you can watch on Netflix, but nothing can be further from the truth. There may be several movies and TV shows you have never seen while searching their extensive library, even if you have access to American Netflix.

Unless you spend hours browsing, recommended titles are based on previous items you’ve viewed or added to your list. Therefore, if you’re facing a shortage of content to watch, we do have a secret to help you out. It comes in the form of Netflix Secret Codes.

📢So, without further ado, let’s say goodbye to mindless scrolling, and get started with explaining how these hidden codes work for accessing more entertainment!


What are Netflix Secret Codes?

Netflix has created thousands of web pages to list articles on its catalog and codes against each genre to make searching with Netflix easier for you. These codes are available for all types of content from real-life war movies to comedies and more.

To access them, all you need to do is deploy an easy web address trick that allows you to find any available subgenre, which are usually hard to find on your own. Note: regional differences may prevent some codes from working successfully. 

How to Crack the Netflix Code?

All you need to do is log into your Netflix account and enter www.netflix.com/browse/genre/XXXX into the URL of your browser. Of course, instead of typing XXXX, you will be adding in a series of special numbers that reveal Netflix’s subgenres).

For instance, the secret code for the category ”Travel and Adventure Documentaries” is 1159. Now the URL will be like this: https://www.netflix.com/browse/genre/1159. Below is a detailed list of all Netflix’s subgenres and their codes:
