Almost all the sites use cookies to enhance their site speed and improve the user experience, and so does Netflix, and these errors sometimes are solved just by clearing the cache & cookies.

For the people on browsers, you might have already tried closing the tab and opening Netflix in another tab, BUT you need to RESTART the system and try again. I hope these basic measures will help you gain access, but if it does not— we got more archers, shoot the next one.

Switch Device/Browser

Clear Cookies

The most common answer to any browser issue by any web support team is “Try Clear Browser Cookies.” Cookies are the basic signals that web servers submit to your browser whenever you hit a website or an application. 

It is widely used by geeks to enhance the speed of their website and deliver a quality experience. I have already explained how cookies are the sole reason for the Netflix Site Error. 

Method 1

If you are not much into technology and stuff, then you should visit, and it will automatically clear the cookies of Netflix. 

But there are fewer chances of bypassing the site error because your browser still has cookies from other pages, and that might be the reason for the Netflix Error. 

Follow the next method that will help you clear cookies from all pages.

Method 2

Clearing browser cookies is really simple, and anyone can do it with a little experience with browsers and applications. 

Visit the settings tab of your browser then look for clear browsing data. Now, select cache & cookies and then clear the data— it will clear all the cookies in your browser.

After following the above methods, restart the browser and then surf Netflix. There are negligible chances that you will face the Netflix Site Error again, but if you do, cook the next recipe.

Cleaning DNS Cache

No support or any guide has asked users to clear DNS Cache to fix this error. As said, Sameer bypassed the site error by flushing the DNS. It might be a little complicated, and hence I have precisely described everything below.

dns cache cmd

On your computer, search and open a command prompt as an administrator and then type the code (mentioned below in italics) 

ipconfig /flushdns 

Press Enter. It will clear the DNS Cache of your system, and then you can retry logging into your Netflix account.
