You might want to stop yourself from watching more Netflix than you planned on watching.

While it can be fun to watch a single Netflix series in one sitting, it's also not very productive or a good use of time.

Netflix's autoplay feature is designed to keep users watching, so if we'd like to regain control over our Netflix use, the easiest way is by turning it off.

To stop Netflix from automatically playing additional episodes and retain our choice of whether we'd like to continue watching, disable Netflix autoplay.

Here's how to turn off Netflix's Autoplay feature in 4 simple steps.

Step 1: Sign in to Netflix

Step 2: Navigate to Account Settings

Step 3: Scroll Down to Playback Settings

Step 4: Uncheck "Play next episode automatically"
