Netflix Rolls Out Separate User Profiles

Netflix now offers profiles for separate family members. Other than the fact that the profiles aren't protected, it seems like an okay option. Personally, I'd prefer the company put a little effort into fixing its horrible recommendation system first.

Switching between profiles is done at the top right corner of the screen via drop-down menu. Just from monkeying around with it here in the Consumerist lair, it looks like all the users can freely switch between profiles without passwords, so parents could check on kids’ viewing habits. But before you start watching everything you’d been holding off on streaming, be mindful that your kids can still access your profile.
