Netflix begins charging users by sharing a password: Here’s what we know

It seems that Netflix has started charging its customers for sharing passwords with friends. This is not surprising, as the company has already announced a change in its policy in March.

The announcement has made it clear that Netflix no longer wants people to share an account password with others and that it will start asking people to pay extra if they want to share the account with more people.

Following this, he conducted tests in Peru, Chile, and Costa Rica to refuse to share passwords. However, the company’s attempt to prevent password sharing did not work as planned.

A report from Rest of World states that Netflix is ​​asking users to pay extra for violations of the policy, stating that the account should not be “shared with people outside your family.”

However, users simply choose to cancel the subscription when a popular video streaming service charges a few customers for violating policy and sharing passwords with other people.

While Netflix has already announced its new charging policy for sharing accounts, it has confused many people in Peru.

The quoted source spoke to thousands of Netflix users and found that people had not been officially notified of additional charges or about the new policy.

Some users are still sharing accounts and have not yet received notification of additional costs. Following this, a Netflix spokesman told Worldwide that the release of the new policy is underway and that different subscribers may be charged differently.

Does Netflix’s new policy apply to India?

As mentioned above, Netflix plans to restrict password sharing and this is currently only done in Peru, Chile and Costa Rica. This does not mean that the new consumer charging policy will not come to other countries, including India.

The company is testing these just in some areas to see how this will work for them and expand this to more countries. Currently, there is no word on when this policy will apply in India. Thus, Indian users can be free at the moment.
