Netflix also allows secondary users to convert their profiles into new accounts.
A Netflix account is meant to be shared in one household (people who live in the same location with the account owner), the company says on a support page. People who are not in your household will need to sign up for their own account to watch Netflix.
In the past, Netflix has estimated more than 100 million nonpaying households have access to its service through free account sharing.
Netflix is about to bring its fight against account sharing to the US. In Q1, we launched paid sharing in four countries and are pleased with the results, the company wrote in its Q1 letter to shareholders. We are planning on a broad rollout, including in the US, in Q2.
Since February, Netflix has offered paid account sharing in Canada, New Zealand, Portugal and Spain.
The expansion of paid account sharing comes on the same day Netflix said it would sunset its DVD rental business in September.
