Netflix password sharing is so common that the company has even chuckled at the same on many occasions. However, new developments are suggesting that the America-based subscription streaming service and production company is likely to start charging more for password sharing of the accounts between households.
The company is currently launching the two features, as a test, in the regions of Chile, Costa Rica, and Peru. In a recent announcement, Netflix said that they will be testing these two features and while they have not said it clearly that they will be applying the same in all the regions, it is likely to happen.
Announcing the same, Chegvi Long, Director, Product Innovation, said, “We’ve always made it easy for people who live together to share their Netflix account, with features like separate profiles and multiple streams in our Standard and Premium plans.

As a result, accounts are being shared between households - impacting our ability to invest in great new TV and films for our members.”
The two features that are being introduced in the said regions are:
“We’ll be working to understand the utility of these two features for members in these three countries before making changes anywhere else in the world,” Long added.
