Netflix cracks down on password sharing

Netflix is gearing up to crack down unauthorized account sharing.

Netflix announced that in Chile, Costa Rica and Peru subscribers will have pay extra to share their account with people outside of their home.

According to Variety, subscribers will be able to add up to two “sub-members” for $2.99 each in Costa Rica. Those users will get their own Netflix logins, recommendations and profile.

Additionally, Netflix will also let subscribers in those countries transfer individual profiles to completely separate accounts. That’ll make it easy for moochers to keep their queue and recommendations intact.
