Watching Netflix on someone else’s account? Not anymore.
Netflix appears to be hunting down viewers who are using someone else’s account. How do they technically want to achieve this is still the question – after all, you can have multiple IP addresses and you can make your IP invisible – but in countries suspected of sharing he will see a message.
Netflix account sharing will soon be a thing of the past
Mixing begins with the text Start playing your Netflix today for free Then you can start a 30-day trial or request a code to verify your account.
The message will mainly appear on the Netflix TV apps and not yet on mobile devices. This test is designed to ensure that people who use Netflix accounts are authorized to do so. A Netflix spokesperson told The Streamable.
