How to change or reset your Disney Plus password
Keeping track of multiple passwords is not at all easy. Yes, you can use password management apps to store your important passwords, but sometimes, you just end up forgetting them. In the case of streaming services, passwords take a whole new meaning.
Because platforms like Netflix and Disney Plus allow multiple profiles, you inevitably end up sharing your password with your family members or friends. If too many people end up with your password, it becomes a hassle keeping track of who’s sharing your account.
For any of the above scenarios, the fix is simple. Just change your password. In the case of Disney Plus, resetting your account password is super simple. There are different methods for changing your password when you already know it and setting up a new password if you’ve forgotten your old one. In this post, we’ll talk about both methods.
THE SHORT ANSWER
The process to change your Disney Plus password is simple: just go to your account and tap on the Change Password option. Getting a new password if you have forgotten the original is a bit more involved, as you will need to check your email to get a passcode before entering a new password.

How to reset your password
If you’ve forgotten your Disney Plus password and want to create a new one to be able to access your account, here’s what you’ll need to do.
- Enter your email address on the log-in page of the Disney Plus app or website.
- Select Continue.
- Select Forgot Password.
- Check your registered email.
- You’ll receive a six-digit passcode that may take up to 15 minutes to arrive in your inbox.
- If you don’t receive a code, check your spam folder.
- If it’s not there, select Resend to send the code again.
- Enter your six-digit verification code.
- Enter a new password.
- Select Continue.
Once you enter the one-time passcode and verify your Disney Plus credentials, your account sign-in details will be updated. You’ll have to re-login on all the devices where your Disney Plus account was being used.
Upcoming password and account merging
In late 2022, Disney announced that it would make subscribers to Disney Plus merge its accounts with all of its online services, including Hulu and ESPN Plus. If you want to keep your email and password that you use on Disney Plus and use it with those services, you can type in your email address on the Disney Plus site when you sign on. You will then be sent a six-digit passcode to that email that you will type into the Disney Plus site to complete the merger.
