SALT LAKE CITY (KUTV) – Netflix is looking to crack down on password sharing among its users.

Future plans to limit password sharing were announced during a quarterly earnings call earlier this week.

Greg Peter, Netflix's product chief, said he is aware that users share their password information, but didn't disclose the number of subscribers who share credentials, the New York Post reported.

“We continue to monitor [password sharing],” Peters said. “We’ll continue to look at the situation and we’ll see those consumer-friendly ways to push on the edge of that, but we’ve got no big plans at this point in time in terms of doing something different there.”

The company already limits the number of devices that can stream from one account.

Netflix has not said how it will stop people from sharing passwords or when it plans to begin doing so.
