Starting now, profile settings will now show you an option to add a 4-digit PIN to a profile, so that anyone who does not know the PIN can not access it. This is a great way of keeping out kids from your profile, or even your friends who have been piggybacking your account (at least you can keep them out of your profile).

Other than the ability to add a PIN to profiles, Netflix has also added a feature 'Filtering titles', which shows content in a profile based on the maturity rating in the viewer's country. The feature is useful, for instance, you want to enable more than just kids' content in a profile but also block anything that's above PG-13.
