How to change your Disney Plus password

It took less than a week for the web’s undesirables to knock the warm, Magic Kingdom glow off the face of new Disney Plus subscribers.

In the findings of an investigation published by Zdnet over the weekend found thousands of account logins on sale – or even for free – on hacking forums for as little as $3 a pop. Others, which have next billing dates scheduled for 2022 can be bought for $10. Disney Plus itself is available for just $7 a month.

As with all password changes, we’d recommend using a completely unfamiliar series of letters and numbers, with special characters and capital letters included.

If this process proves unsuccessful, you can also head to the help section where you can reset the password. The web portal also offers 24/7 live support in the form of live chat or voice calling.
