Your Netflix account will be banned if you break these 3 rules

  • Netflix can ban users if they are found to be breaking rules set by the company.
  • Netflix has already revealed losing of 200,000 subscribers in April this year.

Here are the simple things that users aren’t allowed to do-

1. Sharing of passwords 

After a very large subscriber reduction for the first time in over 10 years, Netflix is taking the issue of password sharing on a very serious note. Anybody who is found using the application without actually owning an account is getting banned from the application.

Millions of users are already misusing this rule and sharing passwords that have been banned on Netflix since the very beginning.

After the big loss of 200,000 subscribers, the company is making sure to take action against users who share their passwords with friends and family members.

2. Using a VPN

A VPN is a Virtual Private Network and it allows users to trick and confuse websites into believing that they’re in a different country. 

So when u access Netflix through a VPN you are gaining access to content that might not have been released in your country yet or has been banned in your own country from watching.

“You may access the Netflix content primarily within the country in which you have established your account and only in geographic locations where we offer our service and have licensed such content,” Netflix said.

Even though instead of a complete ban the users might be just given the warning to stop using the VPN.

3. Creating copies of your own

This is a very clear rule that users from any website not only Netflix are not supposed to create their own copies of the application or create modified versions.

Netflix’s terms state users must “not to archive, reproduce, distribute, modify, display, perform, publish, license, create derivative works from, offer for sale” anything on the platform.

“We may terminate or restrict your use of our service if you violate these Terms of Use or are engaged in illegal or fraudulent use of the service.” Said Netflix.
