New Hopes New Visions

If you watch Netflix via borrowing the password from your friend, you may need to ask for a verification code every time you log in, as the content streaming giant is all set to crack down on password sharing.
Netflix which has more than 200 million paid subscribers globally, has rolled out a new test with select users, to stop password sharing for those who borrow account login information from users outside of their home or family, reports GammaWire.
In the test, a warning notification pops up, requesting that the user must verify that it is his or her account with a verification code via either email or mobile text sent to the original account holder.
However, the fact is that this test may not stop all password sharing as your friend will surely pass on the verification code to you too, the aim is that it will prevent some password sharing.
Most of the users who were part of the test simply pressed “verify later” and the warning returned for a second time.
A Netflix spokesperson told The Verge on Thursday that the “test is designed to help ensure that people using Netflix accounts are authorised to do so.”
