You Might Not Be Able to Share Your Netflix Password With Anyone Soon

Netflix has become an essential way for people to end up viewing the content that truly matters to them, and one aspect of the manner in which people end up using Netflix in the first place is that they often share their passwords with others. This is a pretty widely implemented practice, and one that Netflix has more or less tolerated, although a new test conducted by The Streamable suggests that this might no longer be the case at some point in the future.

It’s possible that you have received a notification from Netflix if someone or the other from outside your household uses your account. It’s understandable if you do something like this, after all not everybody can afford a Netflix account and there are a lot of other reasons why you might want to share it with others that don’t really need to be justified. However, at the end of the day, Netflix is losing out on money if you do this because of the fact that this is the sort of thing that could potentially end up reducing the number of people that would end up making an account on the platform.


If Netflix does end up cracking down on account sharing this will be a rather bold move if you think about it. After all, we are living in a day and age where the streaming wars have become fully underway. Netflix has a lot more competitors than it used to, and cracking down on what has normally been an accepted practice in the past could disillusion users and make them switch to other platforms. Netflix will have to play its cards carefully here, but it does seem unlikely that the company would do much more than just remind users that password sharing is technically not allowed as anything else would be too risky right now.
