These Netflix Secret Codes For Romantic Movies & Shows Are Game-Changers

With Valentine's Day approaching, it's the perfect time to Netflix and chill. Because so many movies and shows hit the streamer every single week, though, finding the right thing to watch on date night can be a real struggle. Rewatching To All the Boys I've Loved Before or Bridgerton for the tenth time is fun, but if you're ready to spice up your streaming recommendations, Netflix's secret codes for romantic movies and shows are here to help.

Here's how it works: Type in "netflix.com/browse/genre" and add the Netflix code that best suits your V-Day needs (check 'em out below). Then, enter the web address and voila! Now every viewing suggestion on your screen will correspond with the numbered code you just entered. Once you're done browsing, you can just click the main Netflix button and you'll be back on your normal homepage. (FYI: This hack only works only works on a web browser, so don't bother trying it on the Netflix mobile or TV apps.)

The codes cover nearly every swoon-worthy category you can imagine. Whether you're in the mood for something sexy or sweet, they'll help you find something to "burn for," as the Duke of Hastings would say.

If you're planning a Galentine's Day celebration, add code 1143288 to enjoy a Netflix marathon with your besties. Or maybe you're in the mood for a good reality TV marathon; in that case, type in code 81233168 to find plenty of good onscreen drama. As for movies, use code 81495 for hopelessly romantic flicks, code 76385 for juicy love triangle films, or code 3186 for teen rom-coms.
