Netflix To Put an End on Sharing Passwords From 2023

According to a source, Netflix, a video streaming corporation, intends to prohibit password sharing beginning in early 2023. It was widely believed earlier this year that the company’s password-sharing feature will be available by the end of 2022.

According to MacRumors, Netflix is planning to fully end password sharing in early 2023. The video-streaming company acknowledges that password sharing has a negative impact on the business, but no action has been taken as of yet.

According to reports, firm CEO Reed Hastings is set to take a call due to a drop in revenue. According to the source, Netflix may require users who share accounts with others outside their household to pay for the membership.

Netflix had already unveiled a new function for its subscribers. Profile Transmit is a tool that lets users use their friends’ Netflix accounts to transfer their profile data such as personalized recommendations, viewing history, My List, saved games, and other preferences.

To put it another way, if you do not have a Netflix membership but are now watching Netflix content through a profile on someone else’s account, you will be able to carry your Netflix data over when you start your own membership.

Users can currently have up to five profiles on a single Netflix account. Each profile can have its own maturity level, watching limits, profile lock, viewing activity log, game saves, subtitle appearance, playback settings, personalized TV show and movie recommendations, my list, ratings, and email address.

Netflix introduced the Profile Transfer feature in a blog post. It stated that the much-anticipated feature has begun to be rolled out to consumers worldwide. “Today, we’re announcing Profile Transfer, a feature that allows anyone using your account to transfer a profile — maintaining personalized recommendations, viewing history, My List, saved games, and other settings — when they start their own membership,” according to the blog post.
