Netflix will crack down on users sharing passwords with friends and family

In a new interview discussing their Q3 2019 earnings, Netflix announced that it was keeping an eye on password sharing, and looking to crack down on the practice.

At the moment the number of devices that a Netflix account can stream on are limited, but passwords are able to be shared infinitely.

It’s not clear yet how or when a crackdown might start to appear, but it seems like the streaming service are intent on making something change.

According to research, Baby Boomers share their passwords 13 percent of the time for streaming services, compared to 35 percent of millennials and Generation Xers share 19 percent.
