Netflix to put an end on sharing passwords from 2023

2022-12-22 17:41 by


According to a report by MacRumors, Netflix is all set to officially stop password sharing from early 2023. The video streaming company admits that sharing passwords leaves an adverse impact on the business but did not take any action as of now. Around 222 million paying households share passwords with an additional 100 million households that Netflix wants to monetize.

However, it's rumored that multi-users will also have the option to continue password sharing – for an extra fee. The platform has tested $3 add-on in some Latin American countries, but it's possible that Netflix will force users to sign up for a separate account for a slightly lower-priced subscription. The tactic may consist of Netflix possibly charging a bit lower than its current $6.99 ad-supported plan, which shows four to five minutes of ads per hour of content that users watch.

Meanwhile, Profile Transfer feature was announced by Netflix via a blog post. It said that the 'much requested' feature has started rolling out to users across the globe. It allows people using your others' Netflix account to transfer their profile data like personalized recommendations, viewing history, My List, saved games, and other settings. In simpler words, if you do not have a Netflix membership, but are currently watching Netflix content via a profile on someone else's account, you will be able to carry your Netflix data when you start your own membership.

"Today, we're launching Profile Transfer, a feature that lets people using your account transfer a profile - keeping the personalized recommendations, viewing history, My List, saved games, and other settings - when they start their own membership", the blog post reads.
