We’ve been telling you that Netflix is putting an end to password sharing, but did you know there’s a way to get around it?
Netflix has announced that they are about to bring the heat and put an end to free account sharing.
There has been back and forth debate — is it happening, is it not — for the better part of a year, but they have said that it’s finally happening.
They have already launched this ban on password sharing in other countries, but it’s about to happen in the U.S.
But, there is totally a way around it!
How To Get Around The New Netflix Password Sharing Rules
Netflix is going to use your home internet’s IP address to figure out if it’s really you trying to use the streaming platform.
If you are at home, it’s no big deal — business as usual.
But, let’s say you are in a hotel or at some other location and want to log into Netflix.
They will send a verification code to the primary user that you will have to enter to prove that it’s you trying to access the platform.
Easy enough, right?
That’s where this little trick comes in handy.
Everyone pretty much has a smartphone these days, and it’s hella easy to text a friend the verification code that’s sent to your phone.
Sure, it might get a tad bit annoying always having to send a code over to a friend who is trying to access your account, but it sure lets you get around the new rules.
So, let’s say you live in Indiana, and your mom in Florida wants to use your Netflix account.
You simply have to text her the verification code that’s sent to your phone, and she can input it into the Netflix system when it prompts her for a code.
Badda bing, badda boom!
It can be account sharing as usual.
What do you think? Are you going to try this little trick to circumvent Netflix’s new password sharing rules?
