With so many new streaming platforms out there, it’s easy to feel like you’ve run out of things to watch. But, did you know that Netflix has secret codes? Yep, the streaming network has a set of codes that helps users navigate niche movie and show categories that enhance the viewing experience.

And right now, you can access special categories for Valentine’s Day that set the mood for a romantic night in. Before we dive into those, though, let’s go over how it all works.

To explore Netflix’s “secret menu” of collections, viewers just have to fire up their web browsers, type in “netflix.com/browse/genre/” and then add their ID code of choice to the end of the URL.

So whether you want to explore something specific like Witchcraft & the Dark Arts (81552046) or look for movies on the shorter side with 90-minute films (81466194) – Netflix has plenty of secret categories to choose from.
