Suara.com – Netflix decided to step in to tackle the practice of sharing passwords over and over again.
Netflix plans to charge a special surcharge for accounts that many people use but don’t live in the same household.
This is indicated by a warning notification sent to account holders whose passwords are shared but do not live under the same roof.
This policy has reportedly been implemented in Peru, Costa Rica, and Chile. Netflix accounts that frequently share passwords will receive additional fees ranging from US$2.13 to US$2.99.
“We’re not trying to stop that sharing, but we’re going to ask you to pay a little more to be able to share (passwords) with him and for him to get the benefits and value of the service, but we also get the revenue associated with that serving,” Chief Operating Officer Greg Peters to CNBC International, Sunday (4/24/2022).
Although it has been enforced in these three countries, Netflix still hasn’t explained whether this will be enforced in many other countries.
Peters added that the company would reconsider the new way to share accounts on Netflix.
“It’s going to take a while to get this done and to get that balance right,” he said.
