Netflix, one of the most popular digital streaming platforms, has gained immense popularity in recent times. As the new year rolls in, the platform has decided to take new steps in order to maintain its position as a leader in the industry.
In a bid to curb the widespread practice of password sharing, Netflix has started to take measures to reduce its impact on the platform. Recognizing the issue as a major concern, the streaming giant has recently published information on how to prevent password sharing from taking place.
However, in a surprising turn of events, the instructions on how to end password sharing without causing a significant loss of revenue for the company were accidentally published on Netflix's official website and then quickly removed. This incident has raised questions about the future of password sharing on the platform.
When reached for comment, Netflix released a statement to The Streamable, explaining that the information that was published was an error and had been added to the site by mistake. The company assured that the guidelines were not intended to be shared with the general public and have since been taken down.
It has been revealed that the password sharing rules that were accidentally published on Netflix's site applied specifically to the countries of Chile, Costa Rica, and Peru. In these countries, Netflix had tested a new account feature for a low fee, which resulted in the accidental publication of the guidelines.
