Well well well. For the last couple of years, my son in Colorado and my daughter in Texas have been using my Netflix account. (But you never heard that.) I figured you could have five people using it, right? But apparently, they’re supposed to be in the same household. What?!
Yes, the folks at Netflix are starting to make a bigger effort at stopping people from sharing password accounts across devices. Lately, Netflix users who use an account of a person not living with the owner of the account somewhat often are starting to get messages asking to sign up for a “free trial” of the service if you can’t verify a code. If the account can’t be verified, the user will have to sign up for a 30-day free trial.
Right now the test is only showing up on TV devices connected to the same account. If you watch on a phone or laptop you’re good for now. But they’re on the prowl.
You won’t rat me out, will you?
