If you have arrived here, you want to know how to obtain, manage and share your Netflix subscription with people from other households. In other words, Extra members who don’t live with you.
If you do want to share your Extra member account, why not also save on the cost of it in a legal, simple and stress.free way?
With Together Price, you can do all those things and save money in the process. Here’s all you need to know!
Up until the first quarter of 2023, Netflix tollerated account sharing without doing anything about it. Since then, though, there has been a big change in policy and sharing an account freely is not permitted anymore.
Now there are specific rules to follow if you want to share your Netflix account with people not in the same household as you, so long as they are in the same country.
The Extra member slot is a parallel account, with its own login, a unique Netflix profile and password, that allows someone from another address to benefit from the Netflix account you are paying. It is effectively a separate account from your own account but paid by you.
If you already have a Netflix subscription and want to share it outside of your household, then you have to change your subscription to one with Extras which are:
Standard + 1 Extra
Premium + 1 Extra
Premium + 2 Extras
Alternatively, on your Account page, navigate to “Extra Members” and select “Buy an extra member slot.”
Review and confirm the updated payment amount and billing date. Rest assured, you won’t be charged until you confirm the changes.
Keep in mind that as Netflix is prepaid, your billing date adjusts based on your previous balance.
Click “Start Extra Member.”
Proceed by providing the extra member’s name, email address, and your own name. This information is used for sending invitation emails.
Opt to either transfer an existing profile or let the extra member create a new one.
If you wish to enable profile transfers during the invitation process, follow these steps.
The extra member will receive a unique invitation link from Netflix via email (you’ll be notified when they activate extra member account).
For added convenience, you can access “Extra Members” and “Manage extra members” to copy and send the invitation link directly.
To continue sharing with someone outside your household, consider adding an extra member by following these steps:
Click on “Learn More.”
Choose between “Start Extra Member” or “Continue to Netflix” to view your updated monthly payment and billing date.
Opting for “Start Extra Member” will result in a charge for the new monthly amount on the adjusted billing date.
Proceed by selecting “Next” on the prompt titled “One more step: Who is your extra member?”
Input the phone number of the extra member you wish to invite and hit “Send.”
A text message containing an invitation link, valid for 24 hours, will be sent to them.
If you prefer, you can click “Continue to Netflix” to return to the Netflix homepage.
The extra member can activate their account and name their profile by tapping the invitation link, granting them access to Netflix.
You’ll receive a notification once they’ve successfully activated their extra member account.
Note: To transfer an existing profile to your extra member, refer to the web browser instructions provided above.
Here are the primary distinctions between extra member accounts and standard member accounts:
Extra members have the flexibility to stream Netflix on any device, but only one device at a time.
They can also download content, albeit limited to a single phone or tablet.
Extra members are restricted to just one profile, and the option to create additional profiles is not available.
This profile can either be a new one or an eligible profile transferred from the inviting account owner.
While this profile can have varying maturity ratings, it cannot be designated as a Kids profile. To learn more about Netflix parental controls, please refer to our resources.
Activation of extra member accounts is contingent upon the same country associated with the account owner’s location. For instance, if the account owner registered in the UK, the extra member must create and activate their account within the UK as well.
