Sharing your Netflix account? Company says it’s come up with a way to stop you

WMC-TV5 (CNN) – Lots of people are comfortable sharing their Netflix and other streaming service passwords with others.

But new software unveiled at the CES tech show in Las Vegas could crack down on such account sharing.

Software maker Synamedia says the artificial intelligence system looks for potentially fraudulent activity.

“Using AI, behavioral analytics and machine learning, Synamedia Credentials Sharing Insight identifies, monitors and analyzes credentials sharing activity across streaming accounts,” the company’s website says. “Real-time dashboards highlight unusual sharing activity including alerts and trend analysis.”
