This is the last day you can share your Netflix account without getting locked

The change policy for subscriptions in Netflix It continues to generate many questions, despite the fact that it is already applied in several countries.

March is the deadline month, according to the company’s most recent report. After that month, if you want to share your account you must pay more for each person.

There is talk of between 4 and 6 dollars for each extra user, according to CNN.

Why does Netflix prohibit sharing the password?

“While our terms of use limit the use of Netflix to one household, we recognize that this is a change for members who share their account more broadly,” the company said in a letter to shareholders, cited by the Enter portal.

“As we roll out paid sharing, members in many countries will also have the option to pay more if they want to share Netflix with people they don’t live with.

Netflix’s decision is due to the economic losses suffered by the company. By forcing more people to pay, they try to reverse the negative situation.

“Today, account sharing (over 100 million households) undermines our long-term ability to invest in and improve Netflix, as well as build our business.”

This type of system has already been tested in countries such as Chile, Costa Rica, Peru and Argentina in Latin America, and in the rest of the world the United States, Canada, Spain, Portugal and New Zealand stand out.

And what will happen to people who don’t pay for the extra users and keep sharing their account? The time will come when they will all be blocked.
