Netflix Starts Cracking Down On Users Sharing Passwords
The crackdown on sharing comes as the company said it overall hurts its bottom line.
After several months of warnings, Netflix has officially started cracking-down on users who share passwords in the U.S..
The streaming company has started sending out emails to all U.S. subscribers who share passwords with people outside their household, as part of a long planned move to limit account sharing.
To share an account with someone outside a household, a user can transfer a profile to a new membership that they pay for or else add an extra member to their account for an additional $7.99 monthly fee.
The crackdown on sharing comes as the company said it overall hurts its bottom line. It has previously estimated over 100 million households worldwide share an account.
