Disney+ Will Start Cracking Down on Password Sharing. Here’s What We Know.

As other streaming services such as Netflix have started in the past, Disney+ is trying to squash the sharing of passwords.

When people share passwords the streaming services have fewer sign-ups, which means less money for the business.

Of course, Disney needs more money… (insert eye-roll here). I’m not encouraging theft, I’m just bewildered at the cost of living right now, as are most people.

You have to have a subscription for this, and for that instead of just paying one fee for everything.

We’ve canceled almost everything at our house, cutting out the cable bill was awesome!

Bob Iger, the CEO, said in an interview this past Thursday that they will start cracking down on password sharing starting this June.

Hulu, also owned by Disney, started this on March 14th of this year as well.

When Netflix started the same crackdown, they had an increase in sign-ups… a HUGE increase… like 100,000 new accounts just 2 days after the policy went into effect.

Netflix is the gold standard in streaming. They’ve done a phenomenal job and a lot of different directions. I actually have very, very high regard for what they’ve accomplished. If we can only accomplish what they’ve accomplished, that would be great.

We do not subscribe to Disney+, however, when my grandson is here he logs into his account to watch television.

How will they determine what is “password sharing” and what is simply a person using their account at another location?

I don’t want to subscribe to Disney+ because we don’t need it, why should I pay for that service if only my grandson is using it and they have the account?

I’m curious to learn how they will address situations like this.
