Netflix allows you to watch multiple episodes of a show in one session. But there’s this popular message that may annoy you: “Are you still watching?”. This post will explain to you what the message means and how to turn off it on Netflix easily.

Why Netflix asks you “are you still watching?”

Netflix asks you “are you still watching?” because you enabled Netflix to automatically play the next episode from the settings, Netflix thinks you aren’t watching as you leave the screen without doing anything, and three episodes have been played in a row.

This message appears to prevent you from spending internet data unnecessarily, even if you enable the autoplay feature on Netflix. This message also appears on TV or any device.

If you press the pause button, change captions, rewind, or do anything then Netflix won’t ask you “are you still watching?”, as Netflix thinks you’re watching by detecting your interaction with the interface.

You can bypass this message by selecting Continue. It’s self-explanatory but that’s the easiest way to continue watching on Netflix. Although that may be annoying if you intentionally binge-watch without interacting with the interface.

Thankfully, there are still ways to disable or get rid of “are you still watching?” on Netflix without tapping “Continue”.

How to turn off “are you still watching?” on Netflix

There are a few ways that you can turn off “are you still watching?” on Netflix. One way is to use the extension “Never Ending Netflix” on your browser. Another way is to turn off the autoplay feature on Netflix.

You can also select “Continue” when prompted if you want to turn it off for one time.
