Is Netflix Unhappy with Password-Sharing ? Netflix announced that it is testing new features and as a result current members will need to pay for these features with an extra monthly fee if they have a separate account. Director of Product Innovation, Chengyi Long said that household plans have been very popular with Netflix members, and a side effect is confusion on when and how it can be shared. Netflix recently announced that they will soon be cracking down on password sharing between people who live in different households. If you want to share your password with people outside your household, Netflix will be charged for sharing password. Netflix has been developing new features to combat password sharing, including separate user profiles to differentiate households.
