Netflix is slowly rolling out its new password sharing policy as it aims to reduce account sharing between households. The streaming platform has being criticized for some of his initial plansand while he removed some of its early guidelinesit seems clear that the streamer is doubling down on the new policy.
In the Last update (opens in a new tab), Netflix has confirmed how it will all work, along with plans to roll it out to more regions. The main idea is that there will be a new primary location feature on your Netflix account, which means anyone in the household will be able to access it. It currently doesn’t explain how it will adopt this, but an earlier version of the plans suggested users would need to connect to their primary location’s WiFi every 31 days.
Netflix also shared updated advice on watching Netflix while traveling. While the original plan was to provide users with a temporary password for seven days, this is no longer required. This means members should be able to continue watching on personal devices and easily connect to a new TV in hotels or vacation rentals.
For people outside the household, standard and premium plan users will be able to add an additional member sub-account for up to two people they don’t live with. This will cost you 7.99 Canadian dollars per month, or the equivalent in your area.
Currently, the guidelines have been rolled out in Latin America, Canada, New Zealand, Portugal and Spain. However, it is expected that there will soon be a broader policy in more countries.
