If you’re subscribed to Netflix but haven’t used your account for a year since joining, you may be getting an email from Netflix soon. The streaming giant released a blog post wherein the company has said that it will be sending emails and notifications to users who have not logged in or used their service for a year since they joined. Netflix users who have also not watched any content on the platform for two years will also be receiving the email. If you decide not to respond to that particular email, your Netflix account will be cancelled automatically.  

Users who wish to reinstate their accounts will find it easier to do do. You can just sign up again within 10 months of the cancellation period and you will retain your Netflix account along with its details, profiles and much more. So, if you’re planning on keeping your Netflix account, you should answer the email Netflix has and will be sending out. Netflix has stated that less than 1 per cent of its user base is inactive. 

In the blog post, the company said, “we’re asking everyone who has not watched anything on Netflix for a year since they joined to confirm they want to keep their membership. And we’ll do the same for anyone who has stopped watching for more than two years. Members will start seeing these emails or in-app notifications this week. If they don’t confirm that they want to keep subscribing, we’ll automatically cancel their subscription. If anyone changes their mind later, it’s really easy to restart Netflix”
