Sharing passwords for online streaming services is pretty common. As a matter of fact, there’s minimal chance that you haven’t used someone else’s account subscription to use a particular service. So this is pretty normal.
If you fancy this route, you’ll be glad to know of a new Chrome extension that lets you do so pretty easily. Keyring is a new extension available on Chrome that lets you share your Amazon Prime Video, Netflix, Spotify and any other subscription-based account with friends.
To use Keyring, sign up for the service then install their Chrome extension and sign in to your account. The next step is to add subscription services you have like Netflix.
But why would you want to use Keyring anyways? Well, it allows you to share your accounts securely. The extension is free – but not entirely. You can only share up to six subscriptions services with three people for free. In case you have a bigger crew, you will have to pay $5 a month for unlimited subscriptions but with a maximum of five people.
Actually, this is not as open as DoNotPay, a similar Chrome extension that was unveiled last year but was alter nixed from the Chrome web store. Because you’re sharing your account passwords with the extension, Keyring uses bank-level security: 256-bit SSL encryption & read-only access to data.
Currently, its only limited to Chrome web browser but the developer says it will also be available on Mobile and TVs next. But I bet you’re smart, you know the drill: screen casting. You can cast your laptop screen to your web via Chrome Cast.
