This is the problem with big media, they overplay all the news and buzz words. Like wtf why is there a fucking robot. And you don't need an ai to stop people from sharing passwords

    Propably like in games where you cant share your account (it is written in eula) so they wont lose profits.

    @TheSilent This is the Verges article on the same thing. https://theverge.com/2019/1/...

    Long story short, someone at CES made a program that can till if people are sharing their account passwords based on usage patterns.

    @sunfishcc https://datasciencecentral.com/m/... it's a technicality and is case law but can be illegal none the less

    @iamroot it doesn’t mate sense. So It’s actually illegal to have someone else helps you to manage your Instagram account.🤔

    @sunfishcc since it's a technicality there are ways around it but if ig wanted to they could take you to court

    It's kinda like jaywalking yes it's illegal but no one without motivation will bring you to court. So free services like fb if and others like will.probably never see anyone in court

    @iamroot netflix even asks you WHO is watching. Doesn't this imply your credentials being shared?

    This is media making story's at its best.
    Yes, someone made an "AI" (fuck that bullshit) and showed it off at CES, HOWEVER it's not affiliated with Netflix at all. Netflix did not create or request it and never stated that they intend to deploy such a solution.
    Netflix did comment on account sharing some time ago and what they think they are losing on account sharing (across friends or account sharing groups), a way it wasn't supposed to be (in their opinion).
    Some site (I think the verge started it) now pulled both stories together and made it sound like Netflix is the one behind this and others happily picked it up.
