Netflix is testing a feature that asks viewers to verify they share a household with the account holder, the company said on Thursday, a move that could lead to a clampdown on sharing of passwords.

Disney CEO says households without kids have boosted streaming success Viewers can delay the verification and keep watching Netflix. The message may reappear when they open Netflix again, and eventually, they could be required to open a new account to continue streaming. “This test is designed to help ensure that people using Netflix accounts are authorized to do so,” a Netflix spokesperson said. A Pakistani version of Netflix is in the making, announces Fawad Chaudhry Netflix, the world’s largest streaming service, constantly tests new features with users and it is unclear if the household verification requirement will be implemented more widely.
