Netflix secret codes: access hidden content

Are you addicted to Netflix? Learn how to use secret codes to discover hidden categories and access an even larger catalog of films and series than the one presented by default by the video platform.

Even if you are not a Netflix subscriber, you probably know that the streaming platform offers a very wide choice of videos, with a regularly updated catalog of some 4 content, of all types (films, series, cartoons and documentaries). Enough to satisfy, in principle, telephages, cinephiles and other followers of binge watching, this very fashionable practice which consists in linking episodes and programs during marathon evenings. 

The choice is such that it becomes embarrassing, to the point that it is sometimes difficult to find something to watch. In fact, on its home page, Netflix limits its recommendations to current trends, the latest releases or proposals established according to the profile of each user. Of course, the platform has a search engine to explore its catalog, and there are several sites and specialized tools to help the curious and the undecided find their happiness with finer criteria. Thus, Flixable lists all the content according to its genre, its date of addition or the languages ​​in which it is available. The site even maintains a list of content that will soon be deprogrammed on the platform! Available both on the Web and as a mobile app, JustWatch also devotes a category to Netflix content, classified by genre, year of release or age of audience. A direct link even allows you to view the content directly on Netflix (to find out more about this great tool which also works with other services, see our practical sheet Finding movies and series in streaming with JustWatch)

But there is still better! Thanks to secret codes, you can very easily go beyond the selections offered by Netflix and explore the catalog more widely by accessing hidden categories. An excellent way to make discoveries and unearth nuggets, especially since this function - obviously free - is accessible to all subscribers. The only constraint: since you have to type in a URL (a web address), this exploration method is mainly intended for those who watch Netflix through an Internet browser. However, by doing research on a computer, you will easily find the results on your profile, when you return to your TV!

How to use category secret codes on the Netflix site?

Secret codes for accessing Netflix's multiple hidden categories are easy to use on a computer, accessing the platform through a web browser.

  • Open your usual web browser and sign in to your Netflix account. 
  • Once logged in, click in the address bar of the browser and type the URL, where XXXXX represents a numeric code corresponding to a category (see list below). For example, for access to comic book and superhero movies, for romantic comedies or genre / 67879 for Korean series.
  • Confirm with the Enter key on the keyboard. Netflix directly displays the contents of the selected category!

How to find the secret codes of Netflix categories?

There are hundreds of codes for Netflix. Some correspond to major thematic categories (Action and Adventures, Cartoons, etc.), others to sub-categories. Netflix does not indicate them and it is obviously impossible to memorize them all, especially since they do not obey any apparent logic. Fortunately, there are specialized sites (in English) that list them, such as Finder, which lists over 27 categories with filters by genre or year, or Ogres-Crypt, which provides an alphabetical list with direct links. To help you in your research, here is a (small) selection of categories, with codes and direct links.
