NETFLIX HAS FINALLY DECIDED TO RELEASE AN UPDATE WHICH ALLOWS FOR MULTIPLE PROFILES ON ONE ACCOUNT.
If you are like me and have several people living in your household, this has been a long overdue wait for multiple profiles under one Netflix account. My kids are 9, 6, and 4 years old. We all have different tastes in television. Fine, I won’t lie, sometimes I enjoy a good Sponge Bob episode more than my son. Often we laugh at different parts but he is never allowed to watch Breaking Bad or Son’s of Anarchy. Sometimes when my children are browsing through they click on something I’ve been previously been watching or Nexflix suggests something based on my previous history.
Daddy, what is THE BIKINI CAR WASH COMPANY and can I watch it too.
AHHH, no that’s not for kids.
Yes, I know, when Netflix starts you have an option to choose regular Netflix or children’s Netflix but sometimes I’m not right in front of the TV when my kids turn it on. Sometimes my kids don’t choose the children’s version. Sometimes my 9 year old wants to watch a PG movie that cannot be found in the children’s section.
I’m not sure how it will work but I assume we will be able to password protect the adult accounts and keeps the kids password free. I’m also assuming we will be able to lock out certain ratings for the kids. For example, I don’t let my children watch anything that’s PG 13 or above so it will be nice to be able to lock it out.
WHEN IS THE NETFLIX UPDATE FOR MULTIPLE ACCOUNTS BEING RELEASED?
They are currently only in the testing phase and they have projected it to be released at the end of the summer. I can’t say I’m excited and can’t wait, I don’t want the summer to end so soon.
