It’s been long reported that Netflix wants to crack down on password sharers among its users. After months of studying, it looks like the streaming platform have found a solution and has started sending notices to users via email.
In the email, Netflix said that a user’s account is only “for you and the people you live with — your household”. The letter added that account owners can easily use their accounts on the go or when they travel — either on their personal devices or a TV in a vacation home or hotel.

A previous leak revealed the new rules for Netflix account-sharing. It is said that to make sure all the users live in the same household, all the devices they use Netflix with should connect to the same primary WiFi and watch something at least once every 31 days.
This means that you can travel anywhere and still keep the account, as long as that vacation doesn’t last more than 31 days.
Meanwhile, those who don’t belong to the same household will be immediately blocked from watching Netflix — unless they pay the extra fee.
Now, the big news finally answers the question “How much will I pay for an extra member?”
Netflix has given us the answer. In the Philippines, you have to pay Php149 per month if you want to add a friend to your account that doesn’t live with you.
So if you don’t want to pay that extra fee, then you might need to remove leechers from your account. Here’s how.
