Authorities revealed in April that, based on their calculations, over 30 million homes in the United States and Canada were accessing Netflix via shared passwords, even while the company was losing subscribers and its stock price was dropping. 

After examining several strategies to prevent account sharing, they’ve unveiled new features they hope will drive users to start making payments. Anyone who uses a customized profile to watch Netflix content on another person’s account can add that profile to their account. 

For the Netflix algorithm to continue recommending things like fresh episodes of Selling Sunset or the most recent teen rom-com, the function, which became accessible to users on Monday, helps to preserve a person’s data, including settings and watching history. 

Customers will be able to help out their freeloading friends and family members thanks to the streaming service.

Customers will be able to pay a small fee to add “additional members” to their bundle starting in 2019. 

Although adding these subaccounts to an existing plan costs less than $3 per month in the nations where it was tested earlier this year, the business hasn’t disclosed how much it will cost US customers. The only option left is Netflix’s crackdown on password sharing.

In an April shareholder letter, Netflix stated that after losing members for the first time in over a decade in the first quarter of 2022, tightening down on password sharing would be a “huge potential” for future revenue development. 

Password-sharing income loss has hampered the company’s ability to “invest in fantastic new TV and films,” it stated in March.
