You cannot share your password. You can only use your account at home, because if you are going to travel you also have to notify Netflix. Now, to complicate matters further, if one of your devices doesn’t log in for a month, it will be locked.
according to a official statement from the streaming companyNetflix subscribers in three Latin American countries (Chile, Costa Rica, Peru) can now read the details about the new restrictions to prevent password sharing.
The new conditions are not yet in plans to expand worldwide, but subscribers in the aforementioned countries will be affected.
As a report published on the website of tech blog, devices connected to Netflix must register from the account holder’s IP address once every 31 days. In addition, the service will immediately block any new computers trying to log in from a different IP address.
How to unlock devices from the same household?
If a device in the account owner’s home is locked, perhaps by a user who doesn’t see content on all their devices every month, logging in again from home network should unlock it.
If it does not regain access, users can go to settings and navigate to Manage home location > Troubleshoot this TV. From there, they can scan a QR code with a smartphone to unlock the device.
Netflix offers methods to register a device on the go and prevent it from being locked. Users can sign in on their phone, tablet, or laptop before leaving to report that they are trusted.
For those who want to watch from a stationary device like a hotel room TV, subscribers can request a seven-day code that they can receive via email or text message. But it is important to reiterate that users who are away for more than 31 days will no longer be able to use their account.
Since last July, Netflix has charged extra to customers in certain Latin American countries who want to share their accounts with users outside their homes. However, the additional fee costs less than a separate top-tier subscription.
