New AI Would Have The Ability To Track Netflix Users Who Share Their Passwords 😱

Brand new artificial intelligence has been developed to track down the many people who share their Netflix passwords.

The technology was introduced at the CES 2019 technology trade show in Las Vegas by a UK-based company, Synamedia.

Synamedia’s technology uses behavioral analytics and machine learning in order to figure out how many people are logged into a single account, as well as where those people are located.

Synamedia claims that their technology is sophisticated enough to distinguish between your house and your vacation home, and it is also able to differentiate between shared passwords among friends or between family members (kids) who no longer live at home.

The company’s CPO, Jean Marc Racine, stated:

“Casual credentials sharing is becoming too expensive to ignore.”

Just how expensive is “too expensive”? According to data from research company Magid, approximately a quarter of millennials share their video streaming account passwords. Parks Associates predicted that by 2021, password sharing will cost video streaming services $9.9 billion in losses.

Racine went on to say:

“Our new solution gives operators the ability to take action. Many casual users will be happy to pay an additional fee for a premium, shared service with a greater number of concurrent users. It’s a great way to keep honest people honest while benefiting from an incremental revenue stream.”

This new information has streamers feeling like they’ve been put on blast.

Trials of the new technology have begun, but it has not yet been released.
