Netflix wants to restrict account sharing

The streaming portal is experimenting with the verification of the identity of account holders, to expel those who are using it without authorization from the service, thanks to the subscription of an acquaintance whose access credentials they know

Netflix will ask you to verify that you are really the owner of the account used (photo: GammaWire) Sharing the Netflix account with other people is a system used by many users to reduce the costs of the service, but when the password is given to too many people c 'is the risk that someone will take advantage of it. Therefore, the leading streaming portal has come up with a new feature that prevents unauthorized persons from accessing the account.

It is still in the testing phase reserved for a small number of users, who have started to see alerts which are intended to verify the identity of the user to check if the latter is really the owner of the account. To identify yourself as such, and then access the service, you will need to enter a verification code sent directly to the owner of the profile, who can choose whether to receive it via email or text message.

Alternatively, the user can decide to register at a later time but, at least for now, by pressing the "verify later" button it will still be possible to access Netflix contents for a limited period of time. If at the end of this period of time the user has not yet verified his identity, he will no longer be able to play the contents in streaming. "This test is designed to ensure that people using a Netflix account are allowed to do so," a company spokesperson told The Verge. Red alert, therefore, for those users who are still secretly exploiting the former partner's account, who will be forced to give up or ask for the access code.

Netflix in its terms of use states that the content hosted on the platform is "for personal and non-commercial use only, and cannot be shared with people outside your family", and the sharing of credentials access with other users seems to be the main obstacle to this rule that the portal wants to break down.
