Disney+ is all set to following Netflix's footsteps and crack the whip on password-sharing, starting with Canada from this November. That leaves only only Amazon Prime as the viable go-to platform for multiple account sharing.
During an earnings meeting last month, Disney CEO Bob Iger made an announcement that after Netflix, Disney will look into measures to prevent password-sharing of your Disney+ accounts.
Now, it looks like Disney has already chalked out an implementable plan to put this new restriction into effect.
Pretty sure that it isn’t a coincidence that after the WGA bad the AMPTP come to a tentative agreement that Disney+ sends out an updated Subscriber Agreement that briefly states and is buried in once sentence in the middle of the first graph that there is no more password sharing pic.twitter.com/zsadgu8HhK— Andrew Baker: Fully Vaxxed!

Back in July this year, Disney+ rival and streaming giant Netflix stopped their account holders from sharing their passwords beyond the permitted user limit.
Now that Disney+ has followed the same route, the only option left is Amazon Prime Video.
The email sent by Disney to its Canada subscribers hardly gives any detail on how this change will affect the them.
Iger, during Disney’s Q2 earnings meetings last month, mentioned that this stricter password-sharing policy has, contrary to what people claim, has attracted more subscribers to their platform
After both Netflix and Disney+ taking the stricter password route, the only big-scale option left for multiple-screen users is Amazon Prime.
