Netflix warns password sharing crackdown is coming

Netflix said more than 100 million global households use a shared password, with more than 30 million of those in the U.S. and Canada.

Netflix suggested it will begin to make accounts that share passwords pay up.

Netflix has long ignored password sharing because it has been growing without cracking down on it, but the company announced it lost subscribers in the first quarter for the first time in more than a decade.
