Netflix Users Who Share Passwords Illegally Could Be Tracked
It’s no secret that most people are sharing or shared their password for their Netflix account with family and friends and if you do you might want to reconsider.
Each service then chooses to deal with the offender as they please-- they might send an email asking them to upgrade to a premium service, or shut down their account.
Jean Marc Racine of the company said in a statement:
Casual credentials sharing are becoming too expensive to ignore. Our new solution gives operators the ability to take action. Many casual users will be happy to pay an additional fee for a premium, shared service.
However, if your password was sold illegally to multiple sources you could be turned into the authorities.
Beware! The system has already started their trial run, but no actual start up date has been released.
