If you’re sharing your Netflix password with people who don’t live with you, you may soon be asked to pay more money for your subscription.

The streaming giant is planning to crack down on password sharing. Netflix reportedly plans to charge people more money in order for them to share passwords with users outside their households.

Under the new plan, users would be charged around $2-$3 to add up to two profiles on their account. The company will first test the plan in Chile, Costa Rica and Peru, officials say.

We want to hear from you Netflix users: If the streaming service does implement this new plan in the U.S., will that stop you or some of your loved ones from being able to use the streaming service? Will you continue to use the service anyway? Take our brief poll below!
