Netflix Ends Password Sharing in the United States

Netflix Ends Password Sharing in the United States

Posted May 23, 2023 at 7:30pm by iClarified
Netflix has officially announced an end to password sharing in the United States. Subscribers will now have to pay an additional $7.99/month to share their account with another person. This is follows the rollout of a similar ban in other countries.

Starting today, we will be sending this email to members who are sharing Netflix outside their household in the United States. A Netflix account is for use by one household. Everyone living in that household can use Netflix wherever they are — at home, on the go, on holiday — and take advantage of new features like Transfer Profile and Manage Access and Devices. We recognize that our members have many entertainment choices. It's why we continue to invest heavily in a wide variety of new films and TV shows — so whatever your taste, mood or language and whoever you're watching with, there's always something satisfying to watch on Netflix.

Here's a look at the email going out to customers today...

An update on sharing between households

Hi [Name],

Your Netflix account is for you and the people you live with - your household.

You can easily watch Netflix on the go and when you travel - either on your personal devices or a TV at a hotel or vacation home.

To control how your account is used, you can:
• Check who's using your Netflix. Review which devices are signed in to your account. Sign out of devices that shouldn't have access and consider changing_your password.

If you want to share Netflix with someone outside of your household, you can use these features:
• Transfer a profile. Anyone on your account can transfer a profile to a new membership that they pay for.
• Buy an extra member. You can share your Netflix account with someone who doesn't live with you for $7.99/month more.

We know you might have questions. Our Help Center has detailed information for you.

Thank you for choosing Netflix. We appreciate your membership and we look forward to bringing you more great TV shows and movies.

The Netflix team

F Netflix, time to cancel mine, I could live without it.

Instead of worrying about who shares their account, they should worry about actually keeping good content. All the favorite programs have either been canceled or sold and soon there will be nothing worth watching
