Netflix goes hard on password sharing, rolls out paid sharing in more countries

Netflix has launched paid sharing to more countries, including Canada, New Zealand, Portugal, and Spain in an attempt to crack down on password sharing.

The company had previously tested paid sharing in select markets, including Chile, Costa Rica, Peru, and elsewhere in Latin America.

The news follows a leak describing password restrictions that came out earlier this month, prompting subscriber complaints.

Across social media, Netflix subscribers expressed their anger over the changes and how they would soon be forced to pay for the extra people mooching off their accounts.

In countries where paid sharing is live, subscribers will have a couple of choices. They can pay to add the extra member to their account or they can suggest the member get their account and kick them off their service.

Netflix subscribers were also been upset about how travel restrictions would work under the new policy.
