Netflix launches new feature, now close second account without changing password

Netflix: Want to remove someone from your Netflix account without changing your password? This new feature on Netflix will help you do just that. Netflix has launched a “Manage Access and Devices” feature, which allows you to quickly remove devices using your account. Netflix told about this new facility in a blog post.

This feature is also useful when traveling, as Netflix details in a blog post, “During the holidays, people go out with family and friends and stay in hotels, during which they can log in to the Netflix app and then use the Netflix app.” But sometimes people forget to log out of it.Of course, this new feature is an attempt to restrict password sharing and freeloading.

Netflix hopes to turn freeloaders who have been kicked out of the service into becoming customers with this new feature. This feature comes after the OTT platform recently launched another feature ‘Profile Transfer’, which lets you migrate a profile from one account to another, with the aim of reducing profile sharing.

Netflix is ​​also working on a facility that will charge a fee for sharing your account password. The company has tested this feature in Chile, Peru and Costa Rica.

Netflix has been on a downward spiral in terms of customers in recent years, forcing them to scramble to be more aggressive in cracking down on account sharing. Netflix was previously very open about account sharing. It’s sad to see Netflix cracking down on this; After all, who isn’t using Netflix on a share account?
