Netflix expands password sharing crackdown to Singapore and other countries

Netflix is expanding its password sharing crackdown to more than 100 countries including Singapore.

In its news update, Netflix says it will start sending email to users who are sharing their Netflix accounts with people outside their household in Singapore.

Netflix users on the Standard and Premium tier can share their account with someone who doesn't live with them in the household for S$6.98/month.

For Standard tier, users have the option to add 1 extra member who doesn't live with them. For Premium tier, users have the option to add 2 extra members who don't live with them.

While the extra member has his/her own account and password, the membership fee is paid for by the person who invited them to share their Netflix account.

Netflix revealed during its earnings report in January that it plans to enforce password-sharing rules "towards the end of the first quarter of 2023".

To stop password sharing, the company uses information such as IP addresses, device IDs, and account activity" to determine if the streaming account is signed in on devices within the same household.
