Disney + doesn't seem to have been hacked. Instead, Disney + customers' credentials were set in other security breaches. Many use the same email login and password for multiple accounts, including the streaming service, which was stolen during previous security breaches.
Disney said that if a user is locked in, they should contact customer support immediately for help.
If you suspect your password has been compromised, here are some simple tips to make sure it doesn't happen again: [1
Change your password
The organization recommended using three "random but memorable" terms in a password to reduce the risk of an account being broken.
Use different passwords
It's simple: Use a different password for each account. Write them down safely (on paper) and store them in a place you remember.
Use Chrome Tools
Use third-party tools
Paid services, including Dashlane and 1Password, monitor logins and inform people when their credentials have been compromised. The easy-to-use tools create a secure password that can be used on multiple accounts via a browser extension.
Chrome also has a free service that suggests strong passwords for new logins.
Use two-factor authentication
Some popular services, including Google's Gmail or Apple, offer two-factor authentication. It is an extra security step where the service text or emails get you a PIN once to log in.
