How to use Netflix codes to unlock hidden categories

Learn how to use Netflix codes to unlock hidden categories with different movies and series than you're used to

Did you know that Netflix has specific — but very specific — categories, such as acid humor, suspense classics, and British series — hidden from the interface? You can unlock these categories with Netflix secret codes without mystery.

These Netflix categories are not hidden on purpose, but serve to organize the “digital shelves” of the streaming service and recommend content to users. These categories are accessed by Netflix codes that unlock these lists.

How are these Netflix codes?

The bad news is that you probably won’t be able to use the Netflix codes in apps for smartphones or TVs, just in an internet browser. To get started, the user must be logged into their account using a browser. At the URL address, note.

  • netflix.com/browse/genre/XXXX

This, for example, are “American Films”, whose ending is 3761.

You might be wondering how to know the Netflix code of all categories, since there are hundreds. Some sites host a list, such as the netflix-codes.com.

Below, I’ll leave the full list, organized according to Netflix itself. But before that, I’ll give the hint of some plugins that can shorten the path and facilitate use.

They are, for Google Chrome:

  1. All Netflix Categories
  2. Netflix Hidden Categories
  3. Netflix Hidden Category Search

Just download in your browser and follow the step by step of what you prefer.

There’s so much more…

Still, the number of 200 hidden categories isn’t even close to every section Netflix has ever created for its catalog. As The Atlantic discovered in 2014, Netflix’s streaming service had 76,897 categories of movies and series.

In ogres-crypt.com, you’ll find hundreds and even thousands of other hidden sections of the streaming service, such as “sentimental dramas about social issues” and “scary, cult films about science and fiction terror.” Some no longer exist.

On another page, Finder.com/netflix/genre-list (which may take a long time to load or crash your browser), are listed 27,002 hidden categories from Netflix, a number that is still far from the 70,000 revealed by The Atlantic for containing items such as “Asian horror movies with a strong woman as the protagonist”.

Tell us, what did you think was cool in these categories?
