One such thing which the OTT application wanted to do from a long time was keep a check and control the password sharing. A report by The Wall Street Journal, Netflix has been working on new methods to crack down the password sharing. Starting from 2023, Netflix will ask people to pay additional fee for the people who share their account out of their household.

In some of the Latin American countries, Netflix has already started testing the add-on payments for password sharing. The price that is being charged in these countries for password sharing is $3. Netflix will apply the password sharing rules via device IDs, account activity, and IP addresses. In a recent development, Netflix also introduced a feature to let subscribers remove log-ins from their account.

The main step in that direction is the addition of multiple game titles on the platform. Speculations are that Netflix will add some of the best titles in the upcoming year.
