How much is the additional Netflix password sharing fee?

The days of sharing your Netflix account with friends and extended family may be coming to an end. According to an exclusive Varietythe streaming service is testing a Netflix password sharing fee that will charge users for lending their passwords to other people.

These fees will be in addition to the subscription fees you already pay to use the service. And that’s not the only change Netflix could make. Netflix is ​​also testing whether or not it’s worth letting subscribers transfer user profiles to new accounts so that people who use your password are more likely to pay for their own plan.

Members can allow people who share their account to transfer profile information to an additional member sub-account or a new account, preserving their recommendations, list, and viewing history.

For now, ongoing testing will only affect members in Chile, Peru, and Costa Rica. It’s not yet clear if Netflix will start testing these features in other countries shortly before deciding to implement this plan on a large scale.

Keep in mind that this change should not affect people sharing an account in the same household. If you, your spouse, and your children are using an account with separate profiles, you shouldn’t be affected. Netflix is ​​trying to block people from sharing accounts between households.

How much is the Netflix password sharing fee?

So far, Netflix password sharing fees only come into effect in Chile, Peru, and Costa Rica. To add a sub-member to your account, it will cost you 2380 CLP in Chile, 2.99 USD in Costa Rica and 7.9 PEN in Peru.

It’s important to remember that even if you notice these changes to your account, the password sharing fee might not become a permanent part of your plan.

“We will try to understand the usefulness of these two features for members in these three countries before making changes elsewhere in the world,” says Chengyi Long, Director of Product Innovation at Netflix.
