2 Cents: Netflix Account Tracker

Central PA Live

Lost of people bum Netflix passwords with their friends, but new software unveiled at the Consumer Electronic Tech Show in Las Vegas could crack down on that!

Software maker Synamedia says the artificial intelligence system looks for fraudulent activity.

When it finds it, in some cases it would ask you to upgrade to a premium account that includes sharing.

If passwords are being sold through for-profit operations, accounts could be shutdown.

A Synamedia spokeman said “casual credentials sharing is becoming to expensive to ignore.”

The company points to research that about 1-in-4 millennials give other people their credentials for video streaming services.

The company says the system is already being test – and in the future it will be offered to other streaming services like Netflix and HBO.
