Access Denied From Netflix And Chill On Other’s Account

Have you been saving tons of money using someone else’s Netflix secretly? Netflix won’t let you do it anymore.

Can’t Access Your Ex’s Sister’s Boyfriend’s Netflix? Here’s Why.

Netflix, the digital entertainment giant has finally made a move that will take away access to their platform from over a million watchers. But, these people were anyway not supposed to have access to the platform, at least the way they had. Yesterday, Netflix announced that it has ended the password sharing feature to curb the shady misuse of genuine payers’ accounts.

Just last year, there was a viral conversation across the globe around this happening, but Netflix did not act that fast on being this harsh to the almost illegal users.

- A Netflix official said in a statement

Removing Password Sharing Was Not The First Measure Netflix Took

Before imposing this rule that almost feels like a globally changed law in the world of OTTs, Netflix actually tried really hard to help users get their own accounts with their own rightful access. For one instance, the entire package of Netflix subscription not only became cheaper, it also became more diverse to cater to an even broader set of audience.

Sadly, most of the users who got the taste of free Netflix and Chill were not so chill about the new subscription costs, and continued to indulge in piracy of the platform.

India Is The Latest To Experience This

According to MoneyControl’s report, Netflix began ending the password sharing function in other countries before reaching India including its major markets like Indonesia, United States, Britain, France, Germany, Australia, Singapore, Mexico, and Brazil.

Netflix has taken certain measures to curb this issue even further, but only in some countries. In India and a few other countries where paid sharing was earlier available, it will not be offered anymore. The entertainment giant feels that they have already cut the cost of subscription in these markets to maintain healthy affordability.

While reducing subscription costs in some countries like India, it has contrarily increased the cost of ad-free subscription in the United States and UK. They have also removed the basic plan of $9.99 in these countries.

With more than we can handle OTTs offering really attractive content, discounts, collaborations and much more, Netflix still maintains the highest number of viewers across the globe.

As a media house that loves technology and the amazing things it brings into our lives, we urge you to Netflix and chill by all means, except the illegal ones.
