Last week, we talked about how Netflix accidentally posted some restrictions when it came to password sharing. Now, Netflix is implementing new password rules in Canada, New Zealand, Spain, and Portugal. 

While no one has confirmed this, they seem to be a good indicator of Netflix's global plans. So, let's take a look at them. 

First up, you'll have to set your primary location. That means the place of residence where all people will log in. From there, they manage devices within the household. There will be a list of every device you're logged into, so you can keep track. 

Of course, if you have been sharing with someone out of your household, they'll be gone within the month. If they want to set up their own account, Netflix will allow them to do that by transferring their login to their own account. 

The big question through all this has been travel. They want you to log into a new TV when you travel, so they can track it. Again, this all seems to be unspoken but then you need to log in at your main residence within 31 days. 

Going to be away for an extended period or want to add a member who doesn't live at home? That will cost you. You can add an extra account for up to two people you don't live with, as long as they have their own different logins, for an extra 7.99 CAD a month per person in Canada, 7.99 NZD in New Zealand, €3.99 in Portugal, and €5.99 in Spain.

Right now these restrictions only apply to these countries, but I wouldn't be surprised to see this happen across the world soon. Netflix has made it clear its mission is to define an account as part of a singular household. 

Times are changing.
