Netflix backtracks on its policy to end shared accounts, except in Peru

Peru, Chile and Costa Rica will continue to suffer from the measures against shared Netflix accounts . The rest of the world will have a new opportunity.


Netflix has backed down on its policy to end shared accounts around the world, but some countries like Peru will continue to suffer from these measures.

In an update on the Netflix support page , it can be read that now it will not be necessary to “connect at least once every 31 days to the home WiFi network” to continue using the service. However, this measure will continue to be available for Peru, Chile and Costa Rica.

Setback, except for our country

Consulting the entry, it can be read that, in the rest of the Latin American countries, Netflix will only send a confirmation code to the owner of the account to verify its authenticity.

“When you sign in to an account from a device outside your home or start using that device frequently, we may ask you to verify it before you can use it to watch Netflix or change your Netflix home . We do this to confirm that the device using the account is authorized to do so,” he says.

However, in the entries for our country, Chile and Costa Rica, it says the following.

“To ensure that your devices are associated with your primary location, connect to the Wi-Fi network at your primary location, open the Netflix app or website , and watch a title at least once every 31 days.”

As we remember, the Extra Members function to pay more for users outside our family nucleus was initially tested in these three countries , so Netflix has not led to this setback in these territories.
