Netflix comically tries to crack down on account sharing

Netflix is on to your shenanigans, and by golly it's going to do something about it.

The streaming behemoth is taking new steps to stop the dreaded scourge of account sharing this week, demanding an unspecified number of users prove it's their account watching all those Great British Baking Show reruns. According to the Hollywood Reporter and a screenshot shared on Twitter, which Netflix confirmed is authentic, some users will be asked to verify their account with either an emailed or texted code.

"If you don't live with the owner of this account, you need your own account to keep watching," reads the message.
