After Netflix, now Disney+ will also start on cracking down passwords
Streaming the latest movies and web series on OTT platforms is what most of us opt for in our free time. To not spend the hefty amounts on subscriptions, many users were sharing their accounts while others used to pay their share of the subscription, or many used to share their accounts with friends and family without them paying the amount.
On one side where this was a benefit for the users out there, this sharing account was causing a huge loss to the companies. Resulting to which recently Netflix decided to put a hold on sharing accounts other than family members in India. After this Netflix saw a notable increase in Signups. Now after Netflix, Disney+ will also start cracking down on password sharing on the Disney+ streaming service.
As per a report by MacRumors, Disney+ password sharing will end in Canada starting on November 1 according to the emails that Canadian subscribers are receiving. As per the email, users will not be able to their subscriptions outside of their households. Earlier Disney CEO Bob Iger mentioned that the company would “roll out tactics” to end password sharing starting in 2024 but seems like the crackdown will begin earlier in Canada.
Well this cracking down of passwords by Disney+ might soon start in the US, India, and other countries too. Just like Netflix, this step by Disney+ might also increase its signups and provide profitable revenue to the company. Though it’s a good step for the company it will surely going to affect a lot of users around the world.
