Netflix allows you to view the history of an account via your mobile phone or PC, but you do not have the option to download the data. The Netflix Viewing Activity extension is a solution for anyone who wants to access history without an Internet connection. The plugin can be downloaded in Google Chrome and once it is downloaded, you will be able to see everything that has been watched in your Netflix account.
Available for free in the Chrome Web Store, the plugin adds a download button in the “What was watched” section and creates a file in CSV or JSON format with the user’s playlist to open in Excel. The plugin is ideal to know what the main user and other people with access to the Netflix account were watching on the service.
If you have a doubt that someone else is accessing your Netflix account, someone who you know, then you can easily check as to what he/she has been watching on the account. If you want to know how to download and use the extension to download your Netflix account history, then go through below-mentioned steps.
Step 1: Access the download page of the extension and tick the “download” button.
Step 2: In the Chrome Web Store, click on “Use in Chrome” button.
Step 3: To download and install the tool, select the “Add extension” option.
Step 4: Open Netflix, select your avatar and go to the “Account” option.
Step 5: Access the option “What was attended”.
Step 6: The extension adds a page download button. Press it to prepare the file with the report.
Step 7: To see the types of reports offered, check “Watching” in the download window.
Step 8: Choose “Watching” to download a report of what was watched or “Ratings” to download user rating data. For this example, we will use the “Watching” option.
Step 9: Choose whether to download the report to a CSV or JSON file. To finalize the report and download the file, press the “Download” button. The worksheet can be opened in Excel.
In case, you are not able to open the Excel worksheet, then you can go online and check if your MS Office suite has been properly installed or not. You can also consult Netflix help and support providers to resolve the problem that you’ve been facing while accessing an MS Excel file.
Take the time to remember new movies and watched series or to know exactly what you and others see in the service. This tool is of great help especially if you want to catch someone red-handed while using your Netflix account. Or, if you want to check as to what you were watching on Netflix the last time.
