The days of sharing your Netflix account with your friends and extended family may be coming to an end. According to an exclusive Variety article, the streaming service is testing a Netflix password-sharing fee that will charge users for lending their passwords to other people.
This fee is in addition to the subscription fee you already pay to use the service. And that’s not the only change Netflix could make. Netflix is also testing whether it’s worth letting subscribers transfer user profiles to new accounts so people who use your password are more likely to pay for their own plan.
Members can allow people who share their account to transfer profile information to an additional sub-account or new account while preserving their recommendations, list, and viewing history.
For now, the ongoing tests only affect members in Chile, Peru and Costa Rica. It’s not yet clear if Netflix will be testing these features in additional countries any time soon before deciding whether to go ahead with this plan on a large scale.
Note that this change should not affect people sharing an account in a single household. If you, your spouse, and children use an account with separate profiles, you shouldn’t be affected. Netflix is trying to prevent users from sharing accounts in between Households.
What is the fee for sharing Netflix passwords?
So far, the Netflix password sharing fee only applies in Chile, Peru, and Costa Rica. Adding a sub-member to your account costs 2380 CLP in Chile, 2.99 USD in Costa Rica and 7.9 PEN in Peru.
It’s important to remember that even if you notice these changes in your account, the password sharing fee may not become a permanent part of your plan.
“We will work to understand the benefits of these two features for members in these three countries before making changes anywhere else in the world,” said Chengyi Long, director of product innovation at Netflix.
