Password and account sharing may soon be banned on Netflix.

Password and account sharing may soon be banned on Netflix.
"""The video-streaming juggernaut Netflix may soon take action against users who share their accounts or passwords with others. The Streamable claims that Netflix has begun testing a feature that will prompt customers to sign up for an account whenever they attempt to log in to the account of another person. ,'_com-box-3','ezslot_4',183,,_('div-gpt-ad-_com-box-3-0');
The prompt states, ""If you don't live with the owner of this account, you need your own account to keep watching."" The message includes a free invitation to join Netflix and a choice to request a verification code via email or SMS to verify account ownership.

The test is ""designed to help ensure that people using Netflix accounts are authorized to do so,"" according to a Netflix spokesperson. The test is currently restricted to televisions, but it could expand to include smartphones in the future. ,'_com-medrectangle-3','ezslot_5',191,,_('div-gpt-ad-_com-medrectangle-3-0');
""The Netflix service and any content viewed through the service are for your personal and non-commercial use only and may not be shared with individuals beyond your household,"" is specifically stated in the terms of use for Netflix.
Despite this, many Netflix users share their accounts and passwords with outside parties. In the Philippines, the Netflix Premium plan, which costs 549 per month, lets you stream simultaneously on four different devices. This means that a single Netflix account can be used by up to four different people simultaneously.
Netflix has not yet implemented a nationwide ban on password sharing. The company claimed that they were keeping an eye on the sharing of passwords and account information, but that they had no plans to stop it—at least not yet. 300,250],'_com-medrectangle-4','ezslot_6',192,,_('div-gpt-ad-_com-medrectangle-4-0');
If Netflix goes ahead with its crackdown on password sharing, millions of users could lose access to their preferred video streaming platform all at once. These users might have to sign up for a subscription or leave the platform altogether. Even though Netflix is more affordable in the Philippines than it is in other countries like the United States, some users may still find the monthly subscription fee to be too much, even for the cheapest plan, which costs 149.
It is hoped that Netflix will be able to accommodate those who are unable to afford their subscriptions. Perhaps a Netflix Premium plan for a single user or device that is less expensive?
