Netflix Is Cracking Down on Password Sharing


Netflix is taking some new steps to stop people from sharing passwords.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Netflix confirmed a new verification feature used to prevent password sharing. "This test is designed to help ensure that people using Netflix accounts are authorized to do so," a Netflix spokesperson said.

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.
