Searches for “cancel Netflix account” explode after anti-password sharing plan

Analysis of Google search data reveals that online searches for “cancel Netflix account” exploded 733% worldwide on the 2nd of February, after the streaming giant announced their plan to crack down on password sharing, reported on BizAsia last week.

A new finding by JohnSlots reveals that online interest in the term “cancel Netflix account” has skyrocketed since the announcement, according to Google search data, an unprecedented spike in people wanting to delete their Netflix accounts.

The rise in interest in cancelling Netflix accounts across the globe comes after the streaming giant announced their plans to restrict account and password sharing. Going forward, users will have to log into the local home wifi network on which the account was set up at least once a month to avoid being blocked, a change that could affect up to 100 million user accounts.
