Netflix is ending the password sharing for users. This means Netflix users will no longer be able to share their account password with anyone (for free) outside the household. In a letter sent to shareholders, the OTT giant has announced that it will start rolling out the paid sharing feature in the first quarter of 2023- starting in April 2023. So users who want to share their account passwords with friends or family will have to pay a fee to Netflix. 

“Later in Q1, we expect to start rolling out paid sharing more broadly. Today’s widespread account sharing (100M+ households) undermines our long-term ability to invest in and improve Netflix, as well as build our business,” the company said.

What is Netflix paid sharing feature

The company has been struggling with low revenue profits and a declining subscriber base. With the new paid sharing feature, Netflix is aiming to charge money from those users who were apparently enjoying the OTT content for free by taking the id password from other paid subscribers.  

The company has further confirmed that it will roll out the paid-sharing feature in many more countries in the first quarter of 2023. With the new feature, users will see an option in the app which will ask them to pay more if they desire to share the account password. 

Meanwhile, Netflix is also offering Basic with ads as an ad-supported subscription plan to users who want a cheaper subscription option. The plan is available in the USA, UK, South Korea and more. However, for Indian users, Netflix already has a budget plan – Netflix Mobile.  

Let’s take a look at all the available Netflix subscription plans in India.
