Netflix subscribers have been afraid of the end of account sharing on the platform for several months. In France, as elsewhere in the world, the sentence was finally dropped on May 24. As of now, it’s no longer possible to share your identifiers with a user who doesn’t live in the same house, but how exactly this works is still a bit unclear.
Not surprisingly, the hackers were quick to seize this opportunity to make some money. Indeed, offers are more and more numerous today on networks such as Telegram, a messaging system that is very popular with hackers. Second, it makes it possible to sell hacked Netflix accounts and share them with other users. And that’s for ridiculous prices.

These offers, mostly in Indian rupees or Philippine pesos, are particularly attractive to those who refuse to pay the €5.99 per month regulation required by Netflix to share their accounts. Here it will be necessary to count about 2 € per month to gain access to a fully unlocked account, which is possible to share with 5 other users, as was still possible until recently.
However, some ads charge a little extra for an average of 50 cents to add a user. Suffice it to say that for many Internet users, the choice will be quick. However, keep in mind that this practice is completely illegal. Accounts sold by hackers likely come from old databases circulating on the black market after phishing attacks in which the personal data of their real owners was stolen.
