DoNotPay has released a Chrome extension. The feature title of the extension is due to the fact that it allows you to share subscription services (such as Netflix and Hulu) without the password.
Sharing streaming services, such as Disney + and Amazon Prime Video, is quite common. Almost everyone does. It is not illegal, but it may be against the terms and conditions of these services.
But millions of people share Netflix accounts with family and friends. However, this means giving your password to others, which is not ideal. Especially if you use the same password elsewhere.
Below is a new way to share access to your accounts (including Netflix) without having to provide your passwords. DoNotPay is a startup that offers a number of different services, such as virtual credit cards and an automated complaint system.
DoNotPay, as mentioned above, has released a Chrome extension that offers an easy way to share your Netflix account without revealing your password. The extension is free and allows you to share online accounts with up to five other people at any time.
It works by using cookies, so instead of sharing your password, you are essentially transferring the browsing session you are using to someone else. For Netflix, Hulu, etc., do not worry. You will seem to be watching on many different Google Chrome tabs.
To share access to streaming services without passwords:
Create an account at DoNotPay.
Download the Chrome extension.
Open the streaming service you want to share access to and click on the extension.
Create a link that you can share or email.
The recipient must also have a DoNotPay account. By opening the link you sent him he will have access to your account without knowing them passwords you.
The only downside is that it only works in web browsers. So users who share streaming services can not watch on their phone, tablet or any smart TV. On the plus side, it eliminates unhealthy habits without having to change your password.
