Disney + itself does not seem to have been hacked. Instead, Disney + customer credentials were stolen as a result of other security breaches. Many people use the same email usernames and passwords for multiple accounts, including the streaming service that was stolen during previous security breaches.
Disney said that if a user is blocked, they should immediately contact support for help.
If you suspect that your password has been cracked, here are some simple tips to avoid duplication:
Change your password
The organization recommended using three “random but memorable” terms in a password to reduce the risk of account hacking.
Use different passwords
It's simple: use different passwords for each account. Write them down safely (on paper) and store them in a place you remember.
Use tools from Chrome
Use third-party tools
Paid services, including Dashlane and 1Password, will track logins and tell people when their credentials have been compromised. Easy-to-use tools create a secure password that can be used for multiple accounts through a browser extension.
Chrome also has a free service that offers strong passwords for new logins.
Use two-factor authentication
Some popular services, including Google Gmail or Apple, offer two-factor authentication. This is an additional security step when the service sends text messages or sends you an e-mail with the one-time PIN required to enter the system.
