According to The Streamable, Netflix is testing a feature that could soon restrict access to other people’s accounts.
The fact is that some users of the streaming service share their password with people who do not live with them. According to Magid research, this is about 33% of customers. According to Netflix rules, you can only give an account to family members. Therefore, the service will begin to regulate this. Some users have already started to receive messages to confirm their account or to subscribe.
By the way, similar rules apply to many services. For example, Spotify. Only users living under the same roof can subscribe to a family music subscription. Spotify tracks the location of all family members for a month, and if it is different, it will deactivate the account.
