Netflix Password Sharing Crackdown – The End of Account Sharing?

netflix password sharing crackdown

Earlier this week, we saw several social media posts talking about Netflix starting to crack down on password sharing.

Password sharing is not an uncommon practice among the millions using  Netflix.

A study from the research firm in 2018 estimated that 35 percent of millennials share passwords for streaming.

In a recent social media post that went viral, a Netflix subscriber captured a screenshot that states the following:

If you don’t live with the owner of this account, you require your own account to keep watching.

This has led many to question whether the streaming giant is going to end password sharing for good on their platform.

Please note this does not affect your IPTV inclusion of NETFLIX, PRIME VIDEO, DISNET PLUS or DISCOVERY PLUS. But be aware if you have a share account with a friend or relation it may stop soon.
