Netflix Password Share: After the lockdown, the definition of entertainment has wholly changed. Now people prefer to sit and watch with the whole family at home, not at the movie theatre. Whether it is a movie or a serial/series, now you get all the content quickly on OTT platforms only.
Netflix is also one of the most used OTT platforms in India. Netflix has been suffering a lot for some time now. They say that people subscribe to the same account and share the password among their acquaintances or friends. Due to this, Netflix is suffering a lot.
Netflix will block you from doing this.
Netflix’s big decision has come out, targeting password sharing, saying that soon it will end password sharing facility from its platform, and the changes will be visible to you before the end of this year. If you share your password with your relatives or friends, Netflix will stop you from doing so. Keeping in mind the password sharing in Netflix, a new plan has also been prepared.
If you share the password with someone else, you will have to pay a charge.
Netflix will now charge extra to users who share their passwords with someone else. After implementing the new rules, users will not be able to share their passwords with anyone else. A decision on these rules can be taken by October this year. According to reports, Netflix has started its activities in many countries. The company charges $2.99 extra for the users who share their passwords.
Why were these steps taken?
For some time now, Netflix has been continuously losing its subscribers. By March of 2022, the company has lost more than 2 lakh subscribers. Netflix says that more than 100 million subscribers share their passwords with someone else, due to which they are suffering a lot.
Keeping these things in mind, Netflix has decided to stop and stop password sharing. How long this new rule of Netflix will be implemented and how much extra charge will have to be paid to the subscribers sharing the password in India, the decision will be known only later.
