Netflix users in India are concerned after learning that they will be charged extra for sharing passwords, but so far, Indians are relieved because the new change has not yet been implemented.
Netflix has changed its policy and begun charging for password sharing with friends.This is not surprising given that the company stated in March that it will be revising the policy change, which will be implemented soon.
With this move, Netflix has made it clear that the OTT giant no longer wants people to share their account passwords with others.This will prompt the user to pay an additional fee if they wish to share their account with others.
We learned about the information from a Netflix test in Chile, Peru, and Costa Rica, where the platform prohibited users from sharing passwords.
However, according to Netflix, the platform has been attempting to prevent password sharing, but it is not working as it should.Many users cancelled their subscriptions as a result of the recent policy, after a few customers were charged for violating the policy of sharing passwords with acquaintances.
Despite the fact that Netflix has begun charging for password sharing, thousands of Netflix users have complained that they were not officially informed about the new policy.
However, as of the time of writing, some users were still sharing accounts and had not received notification of the additional charges.
What about Netflix’s new India policy?
Netflix intends to prevent users from sharing their passwords with others, so as of this writing, only Peru, Costa Rica, and Chile have received the update.
The company is currently testing the new update and customer reaction in some areas right now, and they will see how the market reacts to the company’s move.After careful consideration, they will introduce and expand this policy to additional countries, most notably India.
However, as of this writing, there has been no word on when the policy will be applicable to Indians.
