Netflix has significantly more movies and series in its database than it might seem when we use the service in a standard way. It's an open secret that there are special codes that can give us access to more detailed and inaccessible categories.

Netflix codes are not just a way to quickly go to a selected category, but also a way to discover new movies and series. In addition to classic genres like horror or comedy, you will also find niche categories such as courtroom dramas, monster movies, or Japanese films.

To see them, just enter a multi-digit code in a web browser or mobile application.

Hidden codes for Netflix. How to use them?

The first method is to enter the selected code into the website address www.netflix.com/browse/genre/NNNN, where N needs to be replaced with the correct digits. For example, to see all family movies, you need to enter the following address: www.netflix.com/browse/genre/51056.

There is also an option to enter a code in the Netflix search bar. This method also works in the mobile app.
