No more Netflix and share allowed. Netflix has been warning of its plan to crackdown on password sharing for some time now, and the details of its implementation have finally been revealed. Netflix is headquartered in Los Gatos, California, and has multiple offices around the world, but none in Tampa Bay. But still, they know what you’re doing. LOL. No, really.
According to the updated FAQ on its website, users must connect to the Wi-Fi at their primary location and watch something on the Netflix app or website at least once every 31 days to ensure uninterrupted access to the streaming service. Multiple users within a single household can share the same account, as long as they meet this requirement. However, if someone tries to sign into your account from outside of your home, Netflix will prompt them to sign up for their own account and block their access until they do.
While traveling, users may encounter issues with accessing Netflix on new devices. To overcome this, the streaming service is offering a temporary code to users who sign in, giving them access to their account for seven consecutive days. It is still unclear if users can request a month’s worth of seven-day codes or if any further details will be provided by Netflix in the future.
In conclusion, Netflix’s crackdown on password sharing is set to go into effect next month and users should be aware of the new requirements to ensure uninterrupted access to the service. Better watch your favorite shows while you still can on a shared account. UPROXX
