    Netflix will cancel unused accounts, even if they pay religiously


    Netflix contacts its users to let them know that they will cancel their account on the service if they are too long without using it, so that they “save some money.”

    It doesn’t matter that you have all your bills up to date. From now on, if Netflix detects that you haven’t seen content in your account for too long, it will cancel it. This has been reported by the colossus in the west of the video on demand.

    The platform states that “the last thing we want is for people to pay for a service they don’t use.” To favor this, Netflix is ​​already sending its less active users communications to confirm if they want to keep their account activated . The minimum term for this type of notice will be one year of inactivity. Otherwise, the subscription will be automatically canceled.

    From the year: Netflix warns, and cancels

    This modification will not, of course, be irrevocable. If you decide later that you want to continue in the service, it is as simple as reactivating the subscription . By doing so, all the profiles, progress, recommendations and usual configurations that we have in the account will be recovered .

    Netflix claims that these types of inactive accounts do not represent a large volume with respect to their total assets. In fact, it indicates that they accumulate a total of less than 0.5% of paid users. However, due to the colossal numbers of subscribed users, these add up to “a few hundred thousand” of accounts . Therefore, we are talking about several million dollars that the platform would be stopping from entering each month.

    Of course, this approach makes the largest subscription video service a friendlier environment . Especially if you’re one of those clueless people who sign up on multiple platforms and keep them without paying too much attention to bills. For them, Netflix hopes “that this new approach will save some money.”

    Netflix has been one of the great ones reinforced by the coronavirus pandemic that has come to paralyze the world. So much so that, in Spain, 75% of the users of these payment services have access to an account on this platform, according to a recent report.
