Disney follows in Netflix’s footsteps. The company has updated its regulations. No more sharing accounts.
Disney+ has been announcing for some time that – just like Netflix – it intends to fight account sharing. The promise has been fulfilled, although for now on its sister platform called Hulu.
Disney prohibits account sharing
The new regulations include a provision stating that you can no longer share your username, password and other information with people outside your household. In addition, the Mickey Mouse platform contractually reserves the right to analyze accounts to check whether users are complying with the rules.
If such a violation is detected, the user may lose access to their account. The change comes into force on March 14. All Hulu users have been informed about it. Will the same thing happen on Disney+?
Probably yes, because these were the announcements of Bob Iger, who heads the company. Hulu is probably just the beginning of bigger changes and similar restrictions will appear on the website also available in Poland (Hulu is not officially available here).
Although many people complained about Netflix’s similar steps, they ultimately turned out to be good for the service. In recent months, it has gained several million new users. This is a clear signal for competitors that they can follow suit.
