Subscribers in Canada will be among the first to be on the receiving end of Disney’s new policy on password sharing.
An email sent to Canadian subscribers, first seen by The Verge, has given initial details on how the policy will be implemented.
“We’re implementing restrictions on your ability to share your account or login credentials outside of your household,” reads the short statement.
An update to the Canadian subscriber agreement goes on: “Who can I share my Disney Plus subscription with? You may not share your subscription outside of your household. Household means the collection of devices associated with your primary personal residence that are used by the individuals who reside therein.”
In August, Disney CEO Bob Iger confirmed Disney was stepping up action against password sharing.
Iger described the problem as “significant”, but added Disney was exploring ways to address account sharing and the best options to allow paying subscribers to share their accounts with friends and family.
At the time it was confirmed that Disney would be taking initial steps later this year, ahead of further action in 2024.
