LAHORE - Popular streaming services like Netflix could put an end to users sharing their passwords thanks to the new availability of cutting edge software.

Tech company Synamedia has announced a new program that will allow the service to spot when a password is being shared.

Appearing at the Consumer Electronics Show earlier this week, the software company said the service will be offered to streaming sites such as  Netflix, Now TV and Amazon Prime.

The idea is to spot instances of customers sharing their account credentials illegally and offering them a premium shared account service that will authorize a limited level of password sharing.

"Casual credentials sharing is becoming too expensive to ignore. Our new solution gives operators the ability to take action," said Jean-Marc Racine, Synamedia's chief product officer.

"Many casual users will be happy to pay an additional fee for a premium, shared service with a greater number of concurrent users. It's a great way to keep honest people honest while benefiting from an incremental revenue stream."

Here's how social media is reacting to the news:
