Netflix users have long relied on an ingenious method to circumvent the service’s fees. This method, of course, is none other than password sharing, where multiple users access Netflix from the same account.

However, it seems like that won’t be a possibility in the near future. CBS News confirmed that Netflix is set to introduce a change to its password sharing policy starting early 2023, and will only allow one “home” per account.

What this means, is that the currently existing Netflix profiles on an account will be changed to sub-accounts under one account. Each sub-account will have to pay to share a Netflix account.

Netflix has already rolled out this model in select regions, such as Argentina, Dominican Republic, Honduras, El Salvador, and Guatemala, where each additional sub-account costs $2.99 a month.

As stated earlier, these features will be rolled out more broadly starting 2023. Users will have the option to migrate their existing viewing data and recommendations to their new accounts.
