Slow users of Netflix accounts may soon have to pay for their consumption or purchase their own subscriptions. This is because you can now delete squatters and freeloaders from your account using the Netflix app for iOS and Android.
There is a new “Manage access and devices” option in the account settings area of the mobile app, which shows a list of all the devices connected to your account so you can look out for any irregularities.
Simply tapping Sign Out will eliminate any unwelcome gadget. By heading to Account > Manage access and devices > Sign Out, you can quickly delete someone from your account.
This ought to make it straightforward to spot those members who are sharing the membership fee with other people.
This feature will be quite useful for people who have a lot of gadgets onboard.
It’s actually pretty obvious why Netflix took so long to release such a simple feature.
Now that the site is starting to have issues with membership growth and income, the company is making another effort to prevent password sharing.
For the same reason, Netflix just introduced a less-priced ad-supported tier.
This lower tier is made available to persuade freeloaders to buy their own subscriptions. It occasionally intersperses advertising with your content.
Because the streaming behemoth made it easier to move profiles between other accounts, switching to a new account is simple.
