Netflix has revealed how it will prevent password sharing in the future
For a long time, Netflix took a casual approach to people sharing passwords and profiles. Although officially prohibited by the rules, the company generally allowed profiles to be used in different households and in different locations. However, for the first time in 10 years, in recent months the company has seen a decline in revenue and a decrease in the number of subscribers.
Netflix recently announced changes to its subscription models to prevent password sharing. Until now, it was not known how the platform would prevent users from sharing their passwords, but now it is known.
To get constant access to Netflix, users need to connect to an Internet network at the main location, open the Netflix app or website, and watch something from this location at least once every 31 days. Thus, this location will become basic, and users will be able to view content from other locations in the meantime, the company's notification states. "Mashable".
This means that if you're traveling, you'll be able to watch Netflix by signing in, but if you're in a different location for an extended period of time, your device may not be able to access the platform. In this case, the user will be able to request a temporary code that needs to be entered to continue viewing.
The site "Mashable" notes that the company's document explaining this is no longer available, meaning that Netflix may change some details before implementing the measure to prevent password sharing.
