Netflix Password Sharing: Sharing OTT service passwords with friends or family members is common. But if you’re a Netflix user and share your password with someone close to you, you know this cycle is about to end. Netflix has announced major changes to its password sharing rules. The company said that the paid sharing service will start this quarter. That is, now if you share your Netflix password with someone special, you will have to pay for it separately.
Recently, new co-chief executive officers (CEOs) Greg Peters and Ted Sarandos confirmed the end of password sharing and shared more details in an interview with Bloomberg. According to Peters, after controlling password sharing, video streaming platforms will not compromise user experience.
Netflix said that now only one device or mobile can login to Netflix. Until now, if someone had a Netflix subscription, he could share it with four to five people. That is, four-five people can simultaneously avail of one Netflix subscription.
Loss due to password sharing
However, the company is now going to stop such services. Netflix says that the company is suffering a lot of losses due to password sharing, and that is why the company is going to stop the login password sharing facility. The company also said that it is working hard to make the viewer experience on Netflix more spectacular.
Let us know that the OTT platform recently launched a low-cost ad-supported plan in November that is currently available in the US, Australia, Brazil, UK, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, South Korea, Mexico, Spain. Including 12 available in the market.
