Netflix starts charging users for password sharing: Here’s what we know

It seems that Netflix has started charging its customers for sharing passwords with friends.

The announcement made it clear that Netflix no longer wants people to share account password with others

and that it will start asking people to pay extra if they want to share the account with more people.

Following this, it conducted a test in Peru, Chile, and Costa Rica to crack down on password sharing.

But, the company’s effort to prevent password sharing is not working the way it planned.

users simply chose to cancel the subscription when the popular video streaming service charged a few customers for going against the policy and sharing password with other people

The company is just testing this in some places to see how this will turn out for them and then expand this to more countries

As of now, there is no word on when this policy will be made applicable to India. So, Indian users can relax for now
