It’s about to get real in the streaming services streets.
Netflix is testing a new feature on a small number of accounts to crack down on password sharing. According to research firm Magid, around 33% of Netflix users share their passwords with at least one person.
The new policy will prompt certain people to sign up for a separate account if they aren’t watching in the same household as the subscriber. Viewers will be required to prove that they live in the same home as the account holder when they receive a message asking to confirm details from a text or email sent to the owner.
This process will delay viewing Netflix and if the message reappears when watching Netflix again, they could be required to open a new account to continue viewing.
“This test is designed to help ensure that people using Netflix accounts are authorized to do so,” a Netflix spokesperson said.
It is unclear when the new feature will be active on all accounts.

I’m not mad about Spelman and Morehouse receiving 120 million... I’m mad that 120 million could’ve have been divided amongst more than 2 HBCUs...— AMM 🥂 (@alanamikia) June 17, 2020

Stop saying you’re donating to “HBCUs” if you’re only donating to the same tired 3. Say their names. 😂— Booker G. Washington (@TendentiousG) June 17, 2020

Howard, Hampton, Morehouse, and Spelman does not equal “HBCUs.”— Booker G. Washington (@TendentiousG) June 10, 2020
There are 107 HBCUs.
Just because those 4 enjoy the most white name recognition, and/or you buy into what you think is prestige, or you couldn’t afford them, does not make them “THEE HBCUs.”

120 million to 3 HBCUs private at that versus splitting with a number of HBCUs or maybe all of em would’ve been more practical. But when you only show favor to the same institutions that is just a public exhibition of elitism and classism had amongst HBCUs which is divisive af.— Meka VandrΩss 🐶💉⚡️ (@Meka_Lullaby) June 18, 2020
