From now on, you will no longer be able to use Netflix with your friends or acquaintances as you used to. The streaming platform started to charge 5.99 euros per additional accountthat’s to say, for each profile that is outside of the primary location (which belongs to whoever pays the subscription). Enforcement officials describe this change as a modification”in the form of sharing“. On the table? The ban on out-of-home account sharing.

This is how the app itself warns: “Access to devices from certain locations using your account may be blocked“.

Remember: don’t share an account in multiple places without paying
