Binge watching Netflix is a joy, but it’s also a dangerous game. If you’re sick of the autoplay feature that keeps you from doing anything productive with your life, then How-To Geek points out that it’s easy to turn off.

The feature’s technically called Post-Play, and you can disable it from the Netflix site. Once you do, the feature is disabled on all your devices. Here’s how to turn it off:

  1. Head to Netflix and click “Your Account”
  2. Select Playback Settings
  3. Uncheck the box marked “Play next episode automatically”

That’s it; the feature’s now off so you can carry on doing something more productive than watching 34 episodes of Doctor Who in a row.

  • It’s worth pointing out that this is a per-profile setting. If you have multiple profiles/users on your account you can set it individually for each.

  • Probably shouldn’t tease us with a header photo from Black Mirror, a show sadly missing on Netflix AU.
