  • Netflix is testing a new feature to clamp down on password sharing, the world's largest streaming service said on Thursday.

  • A small number of users will be asked to verify if they share a household with the account holder.

  • It does this by asking for details sent via text message or email sent directly to the owner.

  • Viewers may delay the verification and keep watching Netflix, but the message may reappear when they return, and they could eventually be required to open a new account to continue streaming, One Netflix spokesperson said.

  • This will ensure that people using a certain account have the permission to do so.

  • Netflix is terms of service, say users of an account must live in the same household.

  • However, it and other streaming services have declined to broadly crackdown on password sharing.

  • Netflix has more than 200 million subscribers globally.
