Disney+ and Hulu announced that they’re cracking down on password sharing.
According to an email sent to subscribers, from March 14 onward there will be “limitations” for sharing your account outside of your household. Language in the Terms of Service appears to explicitly call out password sharing as a practice, saying:
“You agree not to impersonate or misrepresent your affiliation with any person or entity, including using another person’s username, password or other account information, or another person’s name or likeness, or provide false details for a parent or guardian”
Disney also reserves the right to monitor users access to ensure compliance with their policy, violators could have their accounts banned.
Password sharing is the act of sharing your login information for a subscription service such as Disney+, Hulu, or Netflix in order to mitigate the cost by sharing with friends.
