Netflix to test new feature to prevent password sharing

In a move to prevent password sharing, Netflix is testing a new feature that would ask users to verify their account via e-mail or text code if they don't live in the same household as the account owner. According to some users, they received a notification, saying: "If you don't live with the owner of this account, you need your own account to keep watching."

"This test is designed to help ensure that people using Netflix accounts are authorised to do so," a Netflix spokesperson told BBC.
