According to reports, Netflix will end its user password-sharing option at the beginning of 2019.
While steps to prevent password sharing among its users will be in place starting in early 2023, the streaming juggernaut has long been planning to do this.
Netflix has been losing money because of this feature, but the company decided not to fix it in 2020 due to increased subscribers during the pandemic.
However, Reed Hastings, Netflix’s CEO, has decided to discontinue the password-sharing feature due to a decline in revenue this year.
Netflix plans to charge an additional fee for users who share their account with someone outside their household beginning in the first quarter of 2019. This has already been tested in a few Latin American nations, where Netflix charges an additional USD 3.
For an ad-supported plan in the United States, Netflix intends to charge subscribers who share their account with people outside their household a fee of just under USD 6.99.
