ACCOUNT SHARING FAQs
Account sharing is when you share your Netflix credentials to other people, regardless if they live within your household or outside it.
Anyone in your household can use your Netflix account. People who are not in your household will need to sign up for their own account to watch. Please visit www.netflix.com/sharing for more information.
A Netflix Household is a collection of the devices connected to the internet at the main place you watch Netflix. A Netflix Household can be set using a TV device. All other devices that use your Netflix account on the same internet connection as this TV will automatically be part of your Netflix Household. Visit https://help.netflix.com/node/124925 for more information.
Netflix uses information such as IP addresses, device IDs, and account activity to determine whether a device signed into your account is part of your Netflix Household.
Netflix is easy to use when on the go or traveling. Use Netflix as usual to watch on your portable devices - like a tablet, laptop, or mobile phone - or sign into a new TV, like at a hotel or a holiday rental. Visit https://help.netflix.com/node/24853 for more information
This new feature affects Netflix users who live outside the household of the account holder.
For existing Netflix account owners who directly charge their subscription to their Globe bill, there is no impact. They should be able to use their subscription as is.
For Netflix users outside the households of the main account owners who want to transfer their existing profiles, they will need to create a new account.
You may charge your new Netflix account directly to your Globe bill by visiting https://netflix.globe.com.ph/. Please note that by creating a new Netflix account, you will be unable to transfer your existing profile. This means titles in your Watch History, Downloads, and My List will not be moved to your new account.
