The controversial crackdown on password sharing by Netflix has just begun in the US.
Users can add one more user who can access the service outside your home for $7.99 more per month if you have the Netflix Standard plan, which costs $15.49 per month. Up to two additional members may be added by anyone who purchases the Netflix Premium package with 4K streaming, but each one will still cost an additional $7.99.

The details came out in a blog post by the company on Tuesday. Netflix confirmed that in addition to the US, it will also implement the crackdown in other countries, including the UK, France, Germany, Mexico, Brazil, Singapore, and Australia.
“Netflix account is for use by one household,” the company wrote in the post. “Everyone living in that household can use Netflix wherever they are — at home, on the go, on holiday — and take advantage of new features like Transfer Profile and Manage Access and Devices.”

Netflix said it has listened to member feedback to develop the following features that give people who share Netflix beyond their household more choice and control:
Manage Devices: Visit Manage Account Access page to review which devices are signed in to your account and sign out those you don’t want to have access.
Transfer a profile. Anyone on your account can transfer a profile to a new membership that they pay for.
Buy an extra member. You can share your Netflix account with someone who doesn’t live with you for $7.99/month more.
