Netflix could Introduce New Test to Curb Password Sharing

Related Articles

Netflix is testing ways to curb password sharing for business and security reasons.

As part of this test, users will be required to verify whether or not they are the owner of the account through an email code or text code. “If someone is unable to verify account ownership within a certain timeframe, they won’t be able to stream any Netflix content,” reports The Verge.

According to Netflix’s terms, an account can only be shared with people of the same household, “the Netflix service and any content viewed through our service are for your personal and non-commercial use only and may not be shared with individuals beyond your household.”

A Netflix spokesperson told The Verge, “the test is designed to help ensure that people using Netflix accounts are authorized to do so”.  And up until now, the company has done nothing to police this except to set limits on simultaneous streaming.
