These secret Netflix codes will give you access to the entire library and genres

Finding something to watch on Netflix isn’t without its pitfalls.

Has the familiar sight of Jason Statham’s shiny head caused you to fall down the rabbit hole that is ‘Recently Added’? Does the sheer amount of scrolling involved on the limited categories ever made you feel so knackered you simply opt for a movie you ‘might like’ because you’ve seen one a bit like it before?

You might even feel like you're not the one in control, being told what to do and what to watch by the streaming giant, which might not even be showing you its whole caboodle anyway.

But now we have the power - and it involves secret codes. Thousands of them, giving users full access to everything the streaming service can offer without the hassle of navigating the limited genres or searching for an exact term.

Simply go to Netflix.com/browse/genre/2851, take the final four digits and replace them with the ID codes here to browse films by unfiltered genre. Ranging from B-Horror Movies to Military Documentaries to Steamy Thrillers (thrillers which take place in saunas presumably), there's a lot to choose from.

With any luck, these will also bring up films not listed on your regular Netflix home screen categories. 

Though as you've probably guessed by now, this trick only works on the website, so a no-go if you're browsing on your smart TV or shiny new PlayStation 4. But then you’ll always be able to search for the exact title once you’ve got it.

It might just be a game-changer.
