Don't.
First: Netflix will cancel your contract, which is not a real issue in itself.
Second: You will have to pay for the damage you did by sharing your account and could get sued. But there is yet no case known where people actually got sued. So, it's more likely that nothing will happen in this case.

I personally don't recommend it for whatever reason, but it's your life...

Well, in 2017, I shared my Netflix with my then-girlfriend (now wife) despite being on different continents (I'm from Luxembourg in Europe, she's from the Philippines) so we could have movie evenings together. Never did something bad happen after that. she even made her own login - and since she's based in the Philippines, even has a different lineup in shows and movies then I do.

However, I wouldn't share my Netflix out of spite, it was just a loophole which allowed us to watch movies together, and wouldn't have done it under other circumstances.

Third: you might get a brain hemorrage by sharing your Netflix account. But there is yet no case known of people actually getting brain hemorrages.

Why bring such an inane argument to the debate?

Besides, as a lawyer, what you just said is outright fictitious. Specially if you're not living in, you know, the US.

Interesting, so if the sharers were all in the USA, would a Netflix have a case? I do not believe they would try to sue anyone anyway, that is the exact environment Netflix was born out of and thrived in (the “you wouldn’t steal a car, so don’t be a pirate” era), they would have to have short memories to start it up themselves.  Instead, they will continually make incremental technical changes to make it harder to share.



Why is sharing bad in the first place? Their most popular option is 2 screens at the same time in HD. How would I use 2 screens at the same time without sharing the password? Or do they mean something else with "sharing"?

I am not the one going on the internet and telling others to violate their contract without mentioning the possible issues that would/could come with it.

 

In the end, it's up to you. I am not telling you what to do with your life, I am just making you aware of what could happen.

 

This forum is visited by people around the world. This isn't only about, you know, the US.

 

But don't mind me and my "inane" argument.

Synamedia this week, companies will soon be about to analyse factors such as where users are logged on, and flag shared accounts that may be breaking the operator's rules.

"Casual credentials sharing is becoming too expensive to ignore," Jean Marc Racine, CPO of Synamedia, said. "Our new solution gives operators the ability to take action. Many casual users will be happy to pay an additional fee for a premium, shared service with a greater number of concurrent users.

The actual purpose of sharing your account is with the members in your household. You are all using the same public IP address.

Ah, now I see why they had to raise the price. Less than a billion profit, sinking ship.



Enjoy it now Netflix.....because once Disney releases their streaming service you're going to need all the money you can get to stay relevant.

Not really, you can use netflix on your mobile through a 4g connection for example. You may be traveling abroad, etc. Definitely not using the same IP address in either case.

Netflix is logging your whole activity. Meaning IP-address / device and the time of course. I don't know the exact data which Netflix is aquiring from your device, but it's not difficult to get your hardware ID you are using when logging in with your mobile device. So, while your IP-address is changing, your hardware ID stays the same. Thus, they are aware of you being the user of that mobile device. 

My IP-address changes each 24 hours, or when I reconnect to my provider. But try to explain two or more Smart TV's which are actually stationary with each having a different IP-address streaming Netflix at the same time. All that stuff is being logged. You can also verify this on your own for the last 60 days.
