Netflix made it clear that only people who live in the same household can use an account opened with his service, and that if he finds that this requirement is not met, he will start charging the user an additional amount next year.

The tech company has dedicated a section on its help page to account sharing, clearly stating that people who don’t live in the same household “will have to use their own account to see Netflix”.

How will you know?

The company verifies household claims by IP address, device IDs, and account activity itself. With this information, Netflix You can find out if the account holder’s home internet connection is in use.

In case the user connects from another network or from another device outside the home, for example because he is traveling, the company will check the device to make sure that he is authorized to use the specified account.

The purpose of all this is to prevent other users from using the same account, even if they are friends or relatives, a phenomenon that in recent years has made it possible to share costs, for example by activating an account that allows the use of four devices at the same time , the cost of which can be divided between four people.

Netflix in this regard is straightforward: “Only people who live with you can use your account.” And if it detects sharing, it warns that it will charge the holder more, as has already been done in Chile, Costa Rica, and Peru, as a sub-account. This approach will begin to be implemented in all countries in early 2023, as reported by the company in the financial results of the third quarter.

It also clarifies that this payment will not be automatic. To give users options, we recently announced the ability to migrate customized profiles to a new account. Although it will also allow you to create “sub-accounts” for additional members by paying an additional amount.

Currently, Netflix offers three subscription plans: Basic ($10), Standard ($15.5), and Premium ($20), which support using an account on one, two, and four devices at the same time, in addition to gradually improving image quality.

On November 10, this offer will be extended to the Basic Ads plan, which will cost $7 per month in exchange for an average of four or five minutes of ads per hour, which will be shown at the beginning of series and movies. and when playing them. (EuropePress)
