Do Americans Really Share Their Netflix Passwords?

One of the factors identified by Netflix as a driver of its latest subscriber slowdown is the widespread practice of account sharing.

According to the survey of 2,209 U.S. adults conducted in April 2022, 17 percent of the respondents access Netflix using someone  else’s password

Earlier this year, subscribers in Costa Rica, Peru and Chile were given the option to add sub-accounts for up to two people outside their own household for a reduced membership fee.

When this model is inevitably introduced in the United States as  well, it’ll likely meet a  split reaction.
