Netflix Fans Discover Free App to Circumvent Account Sharing Ban

Netflix Fans Discover Free App to Circumvent Account Sharing Ban
Published 1 years ago on Jun 03, 2023

Last week, Netflix implemented new rules that restrict streaming access to viewers who don't reside in the same household as the primary account holder, leading some customers to consider canceling their subscriptions. However, tech-savvy users have already come up with two workarounds, and now there's another option on the table.

It's important to note that these tricks go against Netflix's terms of service, and users may risk being blocked from the platform. Additionally, Netflix might take action to address these workarounds before they become widespread.

One method involves using a virtual private network (VPN) to mask IP addresses. Netflix tracks users' IP addresses, along with device IDs and account activity, to determine if they are accessing content from the same household. VPNs were previously utilized to access content available in different countries, but Netflix has cracked down on this practice. However, cybersecurity company NordVPN claims that its Meshnet product offers a solution. NordVPN Meshnet allows users to create a mesh network where up to 60 devices can connect to the same Wi-Fi, even if they are not physically in the same location. This setup tricks platforms like Netflix into thinking all the devices are in one location, thereby avoiding blocking.

Remarkably, the Meshnet feature is completely free, even for users who don't subscribe to a NordVPN plan. However, it's important to consider the potential consequences and legal implications of circumventing Netflix's account sharing ban.

As Netflix continues to tighten its policies and enforcement, users seeking alternative methods to share accounts should proceed with caution, as the streaming giant may take measures to counteract these workarounds in the near future.
