Netflix Starts Its Crackdown on Password Sharing
Netflix is now actually cracking down on password sharing, more than a year after the move was first announced.
The streaming company is limiting password sharing to people living in the same household. Account holders can add more people outside of the household for an additional charge of $7.99 a month, or they can use the new “transfer profile” feature to prompt those users to make their own paying accounts.
Netflix said out-of-household users have begun receiving the following email about the change Tuesday.
As a reminder, you can get Netflix for free if you have an American Express Platinum Card.
