Netflix launch test measures to prevent users sharing passwords

Netflix are ready to put an end to people sharing their account details including their password with another person with tests in place to stop such practices.

This comes after a third of Netflix users are reportedly allowing other people to access their accounts. A message is now being sent to those that don’t have their own subscription to the on-demand platform stating, “If you don’t live with the owner of this account, you need your own account to keep watching.”

A Netflix spokesperson is quoted by Gammawire via Hypebeast saying that “this test is designed to help ensure that people using Netflix accounts are authorized to do so.” 

With a library of films and TV shows, Netflix have recently raised their prices for a range of membership plans. With up to four profiles being able to share one account, it is unsurprising that people are finding different ways of avoiding subscriptions.
