How to find and unlock hidden titles on Netflix

Netflix is one of the most coveted streaming platforms with a massive user base of roughly 222 million users worldwide.

With a variety of content across all genres, the streamer faces constant competition from fellow rivals, namely Disney+, Amazon Prime, NOW, Hulu and more, which compels them to constantly evolve its interface and keep adding new titles to attract viewers. 

Besides producing hordes of Original content, the streamer keeps adding well-known releases to its shelves to tap the particular fanbase. This includes the likes of The Office, Seinfeld, Big Bang Theory, Gilmore Girls, F.R.I.E.N.D.S and other similar shows. The streamer also adds a variety of old-school classic films, by filmmakers and auteurs, including Stanely Kubrick, Martin Scorsese, David Fincher and others, across all genres to keep the interest of viewers intact. 

However, there are a few hidden features on the streamer that general users are oblivious to. With the help of these skills, not only can they access secret titles but also navigate missing films and shows that are hidden from the public. 

There are a variety of secret category codes that can be typed into the search bar to look for a particular genre of movies. For example, if you fancy a music-related show and cannot find the ones that you might enjoy, simply type 13335 into the search bar. 

Here is the full list of secret category codes that you can use to access whatever you fancy on a particular binge session.
