Netflix password-sharing crackdown rolls out in the U.S.2023-05-24 18:03 by Daniela
Netflix's crackdown on password sharing has come to the U.S. The streaming service said it began alerting members on Tuesday about its new sharing policy, noting that Netflix accounts are only to be shared within a single household.
According to a sample email shared in Netflix's blog post, you'll now have to pay an additional $7.99 per month for an extra member slot if you want to share a Netflix account outside your household.
Unfortunately, extra member slots are only available under Netflix's Standard or Premium plans, which cost $15.49 or $19.99 per month respectively. Standard plans allow for one extra member, while Premium subscriptions permit two.
Netflix defines a household as one where everyone lives under the same roof. Members of that household are still able to watch content while traveling, and the extra fee will not apply.
Extra member accounts can only stream on one device at a time and are only permitted to have one profile. The extra member must also be located in the same country as the account holder.
Subscribers can also opt to remove users outside of their households from their account, and urge them to sign up for their own Netflix subscriptions. In this case, anyone who is removed from an account can transfer existing profiles to a new membership they pay for themselves.
