Sharing your Netflix account with others often times creates a peculiar potpourri of recommendations that could leave your friends wondering how mentally stable you are.

Shows similar to Mad Men followed by “Steamy Romantic Comedies with a Strong Female Lead” displaying on your account isn’t the best look. But that’s about to end as the video streaming site is set to unveil multiple user accounts to end this nonsense.

Starting sometime in August, Netflix will roll out customized user accounts for subscribers to store their taste preferences and deliver better recommendations. It works like this: After loading Netflix, you select which account you are (there’s avatars!) and a profile pops up and recommendations unique to their viewing history. Then you can watch your stories in peace.

Despite these advances, Netflix still won’t allow more than two simultaneous streams per account.

Well, at least you can deny to your friends ever watching Hemlock Grove. Wait, what?
