So take a moment and think about it. Just how many people have your Netflix login? How long has it been since you changed your password? If you are paying for it, and the price just went up, what do you do to keep your cost down?

The price to stream on two devices at the same time is the price that most everyone pays; that number went from 10.99 per month to 12.99 per month. If people have your password and you don't have to worry about too many people trying to stream programming at one time, then this will work for you.

If you want to stream on up to four devices at one time (and also get it in 4K) then that monthly fee went from $13.99 to $15.99. If you are just one person, who maybe gave their password out to a few people who you aren't sure actually even use it anymore, I have a suggestion.

Make a list of the people you really want to be able to use the service. You know, mom, dad, sister, etc. Then change your password. Ok, that will remove the person you gave your password to a year or two ago, who you aren't even sure is using it (or worthy of having it). Then knock your plan down to a plan that is one level lower than what you currently have now (unless you have a house full of streamers then you won't live this down) So if you have the two device plan and it's going to be $13.99, go down to the one device plan and that is going to be $8.99.

Then, you wait. See who contacts you saying something is up with the Netflix. The results will be twofold. The people that you don't want to have the password: won't have it any longer and the people you do will get a two or three-minute conversation on how the fees have gone up. A person who truly appreciates not having to pay for it every month should kick you a month (or two) of the fees in cash, or a bottle of wine.

Let us know if this works for you.
