Netflix would start crackdown on password sharing in March: report
Netflix announced it was no longer allowing subscribers to share passwords for free by the end of March in a letter to shareholders, CBS News reported.
The streaming giant said the crackdown on password sharing would begin “later in the first quarter”. However, a specific date for the crackdown is not disclosed.
Netflix said that “While our Terms of Service limit the use of Netflix to one household, we recognize that this is a change for members who share their account more widely. We have therefore worked hard to create additional new features that enhance the Netflix experience, including the ability for members to check which devices are using their account and transfer a profile to a new account.”
Netflix announced plans to start charging people to share accounts in October last year, and the company also launched a lower priced ad-supported plan in November.
Meanwhile, the company declared 2022 a “difficult” year as Netflix lost its subscriber in over a decade.
