If you have a Netflix account and you share the password with people outside your home, it will cost you now.
The streaming giant began cracking down on the sharing of passwords for subscribers in the United States on Tuesday.
“Your Netflix account is for you and the people you live with – your home,” the company said in an email to US subscribers.
The message was also posted on the streaming giant’s blog and states that only people living under the same roof can continue to share accounts for free.
Otherwise, subscribers who share passwords will have two options: Tell the additional user to transfer their profile to a new subscription and start paying for it or add an additional member to your existing account for an additional $7 monthly fee. $99.

The announcement follows the company’s international efforts to limit password sharing earlier this year.
In February, Netflix announced that it had approximately 230 million subscribers worldwide. According to CNBC, the streamer said more than 100 million households share accounts, hurting its bottom line.
Netflix currently has four plans available to subscribers in the United States, according to its website:
Standard with ads costs $6.99/month.
Basic: $9.99/month allows users to watch on 1 supported device at a time.
Standard: $15.49/month allows users to watch on 2 supported devices at once (includes option to add 1 additional member who does not live with you for $7.99 per month).
Premium: $19.99/month allows users to watch on 4 supported devices at once (includes option to add 2 additional members that can be added for $7.99 per month each)
