Netflix is testing a way to crack down on password sharing.
The popular streaming service has been using popups to ask some users to verify their account via email or text, or to “verify later.”
“If you don’t live with the owner of this account, you need your own account to keep watching,” the screen reads, according to Streamable.com, which first reported the test.
The test comes as streaming services proliferate and more people share passwords and services. Netflix confirmed the test, but did not say how many people were part of the test or if it was only in the U.S. or elsewhere.
