The fight against password sharing: ‘There is a demand to understand the magnitude of the problem’

Beneath the surface of the internet lies a shady online world where people traffic in stolen or on-sold login details to popular online content services.

But a growing industry is fighting back and the efforts to crackdown on the practice will make sharing your password with your mates a lot more difficult.

Companies like the UK-based Synamedia have developed a suite of AI-powered tools to help video streaming services monitor and map the login activity of customers to crack down on any funny business.

If they have one message, it’s that your password-sharing days are numbered.
