Netflix is Cracking Down on Password Sharing

A youth group, teenage boys and girls together, watching a large flat screen TV, streaming TV programs. They are friends in s social gathering.

The folks at Netflix are starting to make a bigger effort at stopping people from sharing password accounts across devices.

Lately, Netflix users who use an account of a person not living with the owner of the account a little more than often are starting to get messages asking to sign up for a “free trial” of the service if you can’t verify a code.

If the account can’t be verified, the user will have to sign up for a 30-day free trial.

Right now the test is only showing up on TV devices connected to the same account. If you watch on a phone or laptop you’re good for now.
