Netflix May Crack Down On Password Sharing, To Test On Limited App Users

New York: (HRNW) Streaming giant Netflix is testing a new feature that can help it crack down on password sharing where it is rolling out alerts asking users to verify they are authorised to watch on the account to be able to keep watching.
“This test is designed to help ensure that people using Netflix accounts are authorized to do so,” a Netflix spokesperson said in a statement as quoted by CNN adding that the company’s terms of service say accounts “may not be shared with individuals beyond your household”.

CNN reported that when a user selects their profile on a shared Netflix account, a pop-up will ask them to verify the account by confirming with a text or email sent to the account holder.

Users can also choose to verify later, in which case, the pop-up will show up again at an undetermined time later. If they can’t confirm they’re an authorized user, viewers will be prompted to set up a new account.
