A British software company has developed an artificial intelligence algorithm that
can track users that share their accounts. Netflix will take action against those users.
Netflix wants to put an end to people's account sharing practice. A British software
company, Synamedia, has found the solution for Netflix and also for any pay TV. The new
software can say where users are logged on and flag shared accounts. It can also say how many
people are logged into a single account. Believe it or not, but it can track you as far as it can say
whether you are logged in from your house, from work or from an exotic island.
So, if you pay for your account, but your mother, your friend and your neighbour use the same
user and password, you might be in trouble, because the software flags the account, then Netflix
will decide what to do. First they will kindly ask you to upgrade your account to a premium one,
but they can even close your account. There are also people that sell their password online to
several others. They are in really big trouble, because if Netflix takes action against them, they
will be turned in to the police, as revealed by dailymail.com.
"Casual credentials sharing is becoming too expensive to ignore. 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. It’s a great way to keep honest people honest while benefiting from an
incremental revenue stream”, said Jean Marc Racine, CPO of Synamedia.
It is believed that almost a quarter a million people share their accounts for video streaming
A piece of advice: don’t worry if something happens to your Netflix account, you can
always login and spend time with the best webcam girls. 🙂
