According to Complex, Netflix is currently testing making users pay extra for sharing passwords! The test is currently happening in South America and is requiring users to pay an additional $2.99 to add additional members (outside of household) to the account. The director of product innovation at Netflix Chengyi Long says:

“We’ve always made it easy for people who live together to share their Netflix account, with features like separate profiles and multiple streams in our Standard and Premium plans. While these have been hugely popular, they have also created some confusion about when and how Netflix can be shared. As a result, accounts are being shared between households — impacting our ability to invest in great new TV and films for our members.”
