Netflix explains how it will stop the widespread account sharing
Netflix revealed earlier this year it is losing money as people from multiple households are sharing accounts, even though it goes against its terms of service. We are now seeing the company's plan to clamp down on this.
The plans will get a new “Add a home” option. It will allow one account to be shared across multiple households with users paying extra for each home after the first one.
The “Add a Home” option is an evolution of “Add Extra Member” that was pioneered in Chile, Costa Rica, and Peru earlier this year. The feature will be tested in Argentina, the Dominican Republic, El Salvador, Guatemala, and Honduras.
Users on the Basic plan will be able to add one home to their account, Standard up to two, and Premium up to three extra. It will cost ARS 219 (about $1.60) per month in Argentina and $2.99/mo in the other LATAM markets.
Netflix assures that it will not intervene with your ability to watch on your own device while traveling. Also, the owner of the account will always be able to remove any additional homes at any time from the Settings page.

They are not "losing" any money, they just don't gain as much.

Why they are making this instead of 2FA? Netflix, you need to improve

That is not the issue for the customers. Netflix is costly, and unreasonable as well. I mean why the hell am I been stuck with SD quality if I need not want to buy multi user account? They have to do something to remain in competition.
