No More Sharing of password: Netflix Crackdown On Password Sharing

Spread the love

Straight up! If you’re using someone’s Netflix account, read on, I have some useful information for you.

Netflix is testing a new feature that could help it crack down on password sharing. Netflix is working out warnings asking users to verify they are authorized to watch on the account to keep watching.

First discovered by GammaWire, some users have faced an inquiry when they log on asking for verification that they are the Netflix account owner. A warning message reads: “If you don’t live with the owner of this account, you need your own account to keep watching.”

Netflix spokesperson said in a statement, “This test is designed to help ensure that people using Netflix accounts are authorized to do so.”

The test is purposely designed for account security as well as sharing of passwords. It may lead to a more extensive crackdown around password sharing. The test is not specified to any one particular country for any time duration, but it applies to all Netflix users for account protection. Any illegal attempt into a Netflix account will not be allowed by the system anymore.

However, before you can watch a stream on Netflix, you need to verify your identity with a code sent as a text message to your phone or email to confirm you’re a valid account user. Also, they will be given the option to “verify later.” If the user cannot verify account ownership within a specific timeframe, they will be asked to create a new account.

According to an analysis by research Parks Associates, “password piracy and sharing cost streaming provide $9.1 billion in 2019 alone, and it is estimated to shoot around $12.5 billion by 2024.”
