According to recent reports, the streaming service is now testing out a new method to prevent individuals from sharing passwords in Argentina, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, and the Dominican Republic.

If the firm suspects that you're using Netflix on a TV or other device in another house more than two weeks in a row, it'll ask you to "purchase" an extra home for a specified price. The cost in Argentina will be an extra $1.17 per month tacked onto your subscription, whereas the price appears to climb slightly to $2.99 per month in the other designated areas.

Users should use the same internet connection at home and avoid using VPNs or other proxies.
