Netflix Password Sharing Ban Explained

  • As a result, Netflix will require users to identify a "primary location" for all accounts that live within the same household.

  • Users will need sign into the home wifi of the primary location at least once every 31 days to ensure their device is not blocked.

  • Netflix will use information such as IP addresses, device IDs, and account activity to determine whether a device signed into the account is connected to the primary location.

  • if the account is accessed persistently from another location, it will likely be blocked.

  • To bypass this, the main account holder will need to verify the device through a temporary code. Once verified, the traveling member can watch Netflix for seven consecutive days.
