Due to some changes in the website (we think about new anti-bot protections) login with E-Mail/Password could cause "Incorrect password" error, even when the credentials are correct.
Then to avoid this problem a new login method has been added, the Authentication key.
The Authentication key is a file created by a software (or script). This software will open the web browser in your computer, and will ask you to login in to Netflix web page.
After the login in the web page, the software will create the Authentication key file, and provide you of a PIN.
With this file+PIN (the password will be still required) you can login on any device (or system) where you have installed Kodi with Netflix add-on and so bypass the problem of "Incorrect password" error.
You can create the NFAuthentication.key file from any Personal Computer (desktop / laptop), no matter what operating system you use (and Kodi is not needed), then with this file you can login to Netflix add-on from all your devices.
To create this file and get the PIN, you need to use one of the following software:
For Windows [click to expand]
PREREQUISITE: Chrome browser installed
INSTRUCTIONS: Download the zip and extract the folder, then run the software and follow the instructions on screen. After you have created the file, you have to open it, with Netflix add-on by choosing the login with "Authentication key". Remember to delete the Authentication key file after login.
DOWNLOAD: NFAuthenticationKey_Windows.zip (Google may report incorrectly as malware, press continue and ignore it)

After run the script:

Follow the instructions on screen, after you have created the file, you have to open it with Netflix add-on by choosing the login with "Authentication key". Remember to delete the Authentication key file after login.
