Netflix not working on Chrome? Here’s how to fix these 6 mistakes

Netflix is ​​a godsend for humanity. Whenever I’m bored and don’t know what to do in my spare time, which is most of the time, it shines like a beacon of hope. Netflix knows what I love the most and most of my friends and while everything is fun and dandy, there are occasional mistakes that can ruin the experience.

Like last night when I was watching Agent Coulson save the world and got an error code that read: Your Netflix days are over! (not exactly that but you know what I mean). I think my heart stopped beating for a few moments Netflix throws up mistakes every now and then and it can be hard to figure out what they mean and how to fix them. That is why today I am going to discuss 6 Common Netflix Chrome Errors and How to Fix Them. Let’s start.

Netflix not working on Chrome? Here’s how to fix these 6 mistakes


This is one of the most common Netflix error codes. It appears when Netflix is ​​unable to refresh the data stored locally in your Chrome browser and is forced to use the old data. To resolve this error code, follow the steps below.

Type chrome: // settings in the URL or click the menu icon and click Settings.

Scroll down to the bottom of the page to find the Advanced option.

Again, scroll to the bottom of the page to find the option Reset and clean. Select Reset settings.

You will see a popup with a warning that says that you will lose your pinned tabs, home pages, search engine preferences, and it will delete all temporary data. Your favorites, history and saved passwords are not deleted, so nothing to worry about.

Click Reset Settings. Now come back and launch Netflix to check if the issue has been resolved.

Note that all extensions will be disabled but you can always enable them again.


That’s when Netflix doesn’t know what’s going on and throws this:

There was an unexpected error. Please reload the page and try again.

There was an unexpected error. Please reload the page and try again.

Open chrome: // settings / clearBrowserData in a separate tab. This URL will open the cache options.

You will see a popup. Select Time range as All time periods and select Cookies and other site data and cached images and files. Click on Clear data.

Note that when you clear cookies and site data, you will be automatically logged out of all sites. If you have unsaved work I suggest saving it and finishing whatever you were doing before doing this step.

Go back to Netflix and sign in again. It should work now.


It’s possible that a newer version of Chrome is available and you’re still using an older one. Come in chrome: // version / in the URL in a separate tab to check the current version of Chrome.

How to update Google Chrome or even know if you are using the latest stable version or not? Simple. Just click on the menu icon (3 vertical dots) in the top right corner of your tab and look for the Update Google Chrome option.

Click on it to update your Chrome browser. All your open tabs and windows will be saved and reopened when the browser restarts, but you might lose data, so save your work before continuing.


One of the things that makes Chrome so amazing is the extensions. Some of them, like LastPass and Pocket, are a lifeline. But some of them can also interfere with other services resulting in errors.

The fastest way to check if an extension is causing issues is in incognito mode. By default, almost all extensions are disabled in this mode.

In Chrome, tap CTRL + SHIFT + N to open a new Chrome window in incognito mode. In my case, all extensions except LastPass have been disabled.

Now launch Netflix in the incognito window to see if the problem persists. If not, you will need to disable all extensions and re-enable them one by one to see which one is causing the problem. There is no other way.


Malware attacks can be a nightmare. While there is plenty of third-party software for removing malware, not many people know that Google Chrome comes with a built-in malware removal tool.

Click on the menu button in the upper right corner of your screen and go to Settings or enter chrome: // settings / in the URL and press Enter. Just like before, scroll down to the bottom of the screen and click on the Advanced option.

Under Reset and cleanyou will find the option Clean the computer.

Google Chrome will help you find and remove harmful software from your computer that might conflict with Chrome. Click the Search button in blue color.

Google Chrome will now start checking your PC for harmful software and may ask you to remove some of the installed programs. If it finds anything, delete it and see if Netflix is ​​working now.


Sometimes Netflix just draws a blank. The popular streaming service will display a blank screen with a red loading icon that will continue to circle around, for what appears to be, forever.

You will initially wait for your episode to load, but soon enough you will realize that it is not a slow internet connection that is causing this problem. This is a strange error of the third kind!

Here is a quick fix (odd read) that will allow you to quickly continue watching your series from where you started. Open Firefox or Edge browser, copy the URL of the show / movie you were watching and paste it directly into Chrome. You should be able to pick up where you left off.

When you’re done, try one of the solutions above to see if the issue is resolved.

Now you know how to fix some common Netflix Chrome errors. Most of the errors should be resolved using one of the above methods, allowing you to enjoy watching your favorite show.
