Do not share your Netflix passwords with others ! Heres why

Person using Netflix on their television

So for anyone still using someone else's Netflix account, your days might be numbered.

If you share your Netflix password with your friends then you'd better watch out - a dystopian new AI has been created to crack down on account sharing.

According to WPLG, new software introduced at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas can track down users who use shared accounts and passwords, quickly ending their free ride.

The fraudulent behavior can also generate a message that, in some instances, asks a Netflix or other account holder if they would like to upgrade to the streaming service's premium option that includes sharing. For example, if the login details have been sold online to multiple users, the company will ultimately terminate the account.

"Further to your article about Netflix account sharing, Netflix is not working with/partnering with Synamedia".

IMDb Freedive free video streaming service launches for Fire TV
Amazon has announced, through the Fire TV blog post , the launch of a free streaming service, called Freedive . Older movies like The Illusionist, Memento , and The Last Samurai are now available to watch on the service.

Synamedia has started testing the system and in future it will offer its services to Netflix and other streaming services. Netflix allows its members to set up to five profiles on each account and limits usage of devices that can access Netflix at the same time by plans.

The system would, then, rate the users between 1 and 10 where 1 indicates that the user is likely not sharing the password and 10 represents a user who has a high probability of sharing passwords with someone. "Real-time dashboards highlight unusual sharing activity including alerts and trend analysis".

"A typical pattern would be you have a subscriber that is simultaneously watching content on the East Coast and West Coast of the US", Synamedia's CTO, Jean-Marc Racine, told The Verge. "Our new solution gives operators the ability to take action", the CPO of Synamedia said.

Available as a cloud or on-premise offering, Synamedia Credentials Sharing Insight is already in trials with a number of pay-TV operators. Many casual users will be happy to pay an additional fee for a premium, shared service.
