According to Daily Beast, the streamer has updated its FAQ section for Chile, Costa Rica, and Peru, with answers to all the burning questions subscribers had about the forthcoming changes. US and UK subscribers should see the same changes shortly.

In the section, it revealed that subscribers based in the US and UK will have a verification code attached if not in the household associated with the account they are trying to access.

Additionally, devices must connect to device “at least once every 31 days” for the account to remain active, and if one tries to access from outside where the device lives, it might be blocked.

Netflix went into further detail about this as it pertains to a subscriber traveling between two locations, saying that you are able to request a temporary code to access Netflix for seven consecutive days.

The streamer did say previously that they would begin charging for password sharing by the end of March, and is now adding that they are planning to convert the “borrowers” into paying subscribers.
