Here are some things you should know
- Netflix announced that it has a new feature which allows users to transfer their account to another one.
- Profile Transfer is designed to ensure that your preferences and recommendations don’t disappear once you have created your account.
- The feature is currently being implemented globally and all users will receive an email notification when it becomes available.
Netflix created a way for people who aren’t Netflix subscribers to be able to move their profile to a new account. This will not affect their personal recommendations or preferences. Following a test run in Peru, Costa Rica, Chile and Costa Rica earlier this year, Profile Transfer is now available worldwide.
Netflix has announced a method to allow you to set up your account whenever unexpected events occur. This is better than having to cancel your existing Netflix account. Netflix wants to relieve those fears.
“People move. Family grows. “Relationships can end,” said the company in a blog posting (opens new tab). Netflix’s experience must remain unchanged despite all these changes.
Once you leave an account that you are using, your preferences, recommendations, browsing history, content list and saved games will remain the same. This is an extremely requested feature according to Netflix.
It is part of an overall plan to curb account sharing. Netflix has previously stated that it was unable to “invest in great new TV and movies” because of this practice. The company doesn’t want those who aren’t paying to subscribe to their service, so it makes good sense to preserve the information they already have.
Netflix will inform you once the feature is live in your account. After it goes live, simply visit your profile icon at the homepage and select “Transfer Profil”. Follow the steps to finish the migration.
Netflix wants to eliminate password sharing between homes, which means you will have to eventually pay for your own subscription. Netflix will soon offer a cheaper and ad-supported subscription for $7 per monthly, which is challenging other streaming services offering similar options.
