Netflix is one of the most widely recognized streaming platforms with a massive range of exclusive series, as well as films that are quite tempting but the subscription cost is quite tedious to average individuals.
Moreover, Netflix is quite strict to the extent that most of their original contents can only be found on their official website alone or probably when you subscribe to their stores.
One of the most popular contents in the whole of Netflix is “Stranger Things” and this depicts the excellence of the type of series that users are going to see when they subscribed to a package; probably monthly or even yearly.
Meanwhile, Netflix has a way of attracting new users to its platform.
They do this by first giving them a free trial which may last for one month.
Furthermore, Netflix offers its subscribers three different subscription plans which in turn come with different streaming video quality and also the number of people who can use the subscription at the same time.
Without using tricks, the fixed costs for Netflix’s basic subscription are $8.99, while the standard and premium subscriptions are $12.99 and $15.99 respectively.
In this guide, we will show you in detail using proper screenshots how you can create and watch Netflix for free even without using a credit card.

How to Create & Watch Netflix For Free (Step By Step Guide)
In this section, we detailed a step by step guide on how you can get your free Netflix account regardless of the country in which you reside.
All you should do is follow our write-ups as well as our images, for virtual understanding.
Let’s dive in.
Step #1: Install or Update the Netflix App
Go to Google Play Store or App Store, depending on the device you are using, and download the Netflix app.
Meanwhile, if you already have the Netflix app installed on your phone, we recommend that you update the app so that the trick we are about to show you can work.
From your Google Play Store or app store, search for Netflix, when the result loads, download or update the Netflix app (depending on if you already have the app on your phone or not).
You can as well use third-party platforms such as Apptodown to install the Netflix app on your device.
Step #2: Open the Netflix App
Right from your Google Play Store or App Store, you can click on the “Open” button which is available in your Google Play store.
Moreover, you can navigate to your installed apps and open the Netflix app manually just as you do to other apps.
When you open the Netflix app, what you will see is “Getting Started,” which means that the Netflix free trial for 30 days is not available in your country.
Don’t panic because we have some tricks we can use to bypass this obstacle.
Step #3: Get a VPN
In this step, we recommended using a VPN (Virtual Private Network) to change our country location so that we can be able to access Netflix free trial for 30 days.
Now go back to Google Play Store or your app store to download a VPN that will be used to bypass the restriction that Netflix placed on your country.
Moreover, we needed a particular VPN for this tutorial but it happens that the VPN app is not on Google Play Store.
This means that we are going to use third-party software to achieve our goal of downloading this VPN application.
Now navigate to your browser (we will be using the Google Chrome browser in this guide.
From the search bar, type “Hola VPN free download”
Click on the m.apkpure.com website as indicated with a red box in the image above.
Now when the website opens, follow the graphical user interface to install the app. See the image below.
From the image above, click on the “Download APK” to download the mod Hola VPN for free.
After your download, ensure that you set your android device to install applications from other platforms aside Google Play Store.
Next, go to your “File Manager” > locate “Downloads” and then install the Hola VPN to your android device.
Step #4: Clear Your Netflix App Data
Since you have installed the Netflix app, there is no need for you to uninstall and reinstall the app again.
All you need to do here is to go to your app settings, locate the Netflix app, and tap on it to open.
Next tap on “Storage & Cache” to clear either the existing data or the stored cache.
Here, we recommend that you clear both the storage or data and the cache so that the Netflix app will not have any existing data on your phone.
Step #5: Open your Hola VPN
Go to your application interface and open the Hola VPN that you just installed. Ensure that you have a working internet connection.
When it opens, click on “I agree” as shown in the image below to continue.
Next, you will see a list of all the apps that you have on your phone.
Since we are working on a trick to get a free Netflix account for 30 days, tap on Netflix as shown in the image below.
Next, you need to choose a country you wish to use to access Netflix.
Since the United States is quite popular, we decided to choose other countries where their citizens are allowed to use Netflix free trial for 30 days.
From the image below, click on “More countries” to see a list of countries that were included in the Hola VPN database.
When the next page opens, just use the search button that you will see and type “Vietnam.”
Next, tap on “Vietnam” when your inputted text brings the country you typed alongside its country flag.
See the image below.
Next, you will be asked to “Start a Free Plan” with your Netflix app.
Now as you can see from the image below, you have been allowed to start a free plan.
Now click on the red button that says “Start a Free Plan” to get started with creating your free Netflix account.
The reason why you need to create an account with Netflix is that they need to track the activity of every single user on their platform.
Now input the email address that you want to use for your Netflix account and click on “Start a Free Plan” to proceed.
Next, you need to choose your desired password that you intend to use alongside your email address for your Netflix account.
On the “Enter a password” page, tick the check box that says “please do not email me Netflix special offers.”
Moreover, if you want to be receiving the latest offers in your email address from Netflix, you can leave this check box unchecked.
Next, thick the check box that says “I agree that I am above 18.” Since this check box is mandatory for every user, we recommend that you check it, to enable you to create your free account with the Netflix platform.
When you are done, tap on the red button that says “Create account” to create your Netflix account.
Note: Ensure that you follow this step-by-step guide.
Also, make sure that your Hola VPN is active and also that you are accessing the Netflix app through the Hola VPN.
When you have successfully created your Netflix account, you will be taken to another page where you will be asked to select just three items from the grid list of diverse series that are available in the free trial version for Netflix users.
This selection helps Netflix to know the kind of movies or series that you are interested in watching.
This will in turn help the Netflix AI (Artificial Intelligence) to suggest related series right from your home page when you come back another time to stream some series from Netflix.
Next, select any three series that you may like to add to your favourite watch list.
I selected “Squid games, Crash Landing, and Stranger things” as you can see from the image below.
When you are done selecting your three favourite series, click on the red button that says “Continue”
Next, you will be taken to another page where you will be able to see lots of series that are included in the free trial package.
Just harness as many series as you want, since you have been given access to watch Netflix movies and series without adding your debit card details when creating your Netflix free trial account.
See the image below to see some series that are available for you.
Congratulations, you have successfully accessed Netflix for free without adding your debit card details.
Meanwhile, there are other lots of things you can do when you have been given access to a whole lot of Netflix series.

See the image below.
Also, to see more info about the particular series you are watching, just go back and just beside the “Play button”, you will see an icon by the right.
Click on the icon to see more details or information about the particular video or series you are watching.

See the image below to see a few of the series that you can access for free with a Netflix trial account.
Congratulations, at this stage, you can freely access your Netflix app anytime you want without the need to input your debit card details.
