Netflix to start culling inactive accounts

Automatic Account Cancelation Feature Coming to Netflix

Netflix announced plans Thursday to automatically cancel dormant accounts if the account owners do not respond to a message from the TV- and movie-streaming company. This announcement has come across as a shocker for netizens. Rather, these inactive users will be given be sent reminders for cancellation of their accounts on their registered email address and also via an in-app notification.

Users, who do not confirm they want to continue with Netflix, the company will automatically cancel their subscription.

Netflix said it had already started to notify people who have not watched anything for the 12 months since they become subscribers if they wished to keep their subscription. Netflix simply doesn't want people to pay for something they're not using.

If you've been letting your Netflix account sit idle, your subscription is about to be cancelled.

The good news is that it's easier to sign up next time.

. Netflix said inactive accounts make up for less than 0.5% of its members.

He goes on to note that while this is an important move for the company to take, only a small amount of subscribers are classified by Netflix as inactive.

Netflix said there are hundreds of thousands of accounts that are inactive and the streaming giant is seeking to save their owners' money. Netflix clarified that those who will cancel their accounts will still have their favorite profiles, account details, and viewing preferences if they will be rejoining within 10 months. "In the meantime, we hope this new policy will save people hard-earned cash".

Netflix more than doubled the quarterly growth it predicted in January, well before the COVID-19 outbreak began to shut down many major economies.

The streaming company has 183 million subscribers worldwide.
