Though it may have hit a slight road bump with technical difficulties upon its launch, Disney+ still screams of victory with over 10 million subscribers. “The Mandalorian” debuted to some stellar ravings and will serve as a bountiful “Star Wars” placeholder in the anticipatory wait for “Episode IX,” and if that wasn’t enough, there’s plenty of other content for viewers to get lost in.

Yet, as evidenced by The Verge, one thing Disney+ may eventually be cracking down on is password sharing. Made ever-more popular in the age of streaming, account sharing, best exemplified by the droves of Netflix viewers who don’t have (or pay for) their own account, has become seemingly rampant as more services are launched.

For now, though, account sharers on Disney+ won’t have to fear. Disney will reportedly be waiting quite sometime before they start policing accounts. Head of Disney’s Streaming Service, Michael Paull, even responded to these early concerns from subscribers during the Disney+ preview last week.

Paull said, “Password sharing is definitely something we think about…They’re going to use those accounts for their family, for their household. That being said, we do recognize password sharing exists and will continue to exist.”

He went on to evaluate the fact that with the streaming service’s relatively small price tag of $6.99 per month, Disney+ markets a pretty good deal, something consumers will realize and "act accordingly." Having free 4K and HD viewing of nearly 500 movies and 700 shows only expounds the platform.

So, what does Disney plan to do in the future? Paull said the company has “created some technology that’s in the backend that we will use to understand behavior." He explained, "... when we see behavior that doesn’t make sense, we have mechanisms that we’ve put in place that will deal with it.”

It seems Disney+ has saddled in for the long haul. Though account sharing might be okay for now, in the long run, Disney may crack down hard on supposed password sharers. A single account that has an unnatural spike in both users and same-time viewers may be flagged. Though, as of now, it’s hard to say how exactly Disney will handle said shared accounts.
