Netflix can’t afford to lose any more subscribers and actually needs them to stay on top of the streaming war. It’s just that competition is increasing and the cheapest ad-supported plan might not be the lifeline for everything. Even because it is not present in all locations. This makes the hunt for Netflix accounts that are being misused unavoidable. However, so that this does not have a too complicated impact this company is offering a life raft. So the news of profile transfer on Netflix is already being made available here in Portugal but you have to authorize it!
New from Netflix has arrived but you have to authorize it!
It is an unquestionable truth. The account hunt will start because people got tired of abusing. In some plans, there are even 8 people, which greatly complicates the platform’s growth plans.
Now with the penalties for those who have been “prevaricating” it makes sense before the storm comes, to offer a lifeboat. In this case, Netflix decided to launch a feature that allows you to transfer profiles to a completely new account. In fact, this is something very interesting.
How does this profile migration system work?
In a very simple way. Let’s imagine that we are in an account with four or five other people and we have our profile, let’s imagine called Pedro. Now, through the new tool, we can join Netflix in isolation and transfer the Pedro profile to our new account. With it go many other things with everything we watch, tastes, among other things.
This novelty is already being made available from today.
Everything works in a very simple way. So to proceed with the profile transfer we will have an option within the menu associated with our account.
So we have to go to the profile and then in the menu we click on Transfer Profile.
However, if you try to do it before you have seen the email, you will not be able to.
This is because you will first have to respond to an authorization email sent to your account.
In practice, the email presents our functionality and has a link where we have to click to activate the function.
In addition to being able to activate it immediately, you can also deactivate it. If you do nothing, profile transfers will be active 10 days after receiving the email.
However, I remind you that even if you authorize it now, you can deactivate profile transfers whenever you want, in the your account settings page.
Once we have authorized it, we can go back to the transfer mechanism.
As soon as we’re able to do that, we’ll be told that Netflix has made it much simpler to transfer profiles to a new account.
Then we just enter the account data where we want to place our profile.
However, when the process is complete, the account owner is notified that we have transferred our profile.
It is without a doubt a nice way to lead to the creation of new accounts and, above all, to allow you not to lose any important information that could affect the suggestions and everything else that Netflix makes available.
