It’s been a while since Disney took our viewing experience to the next level with the introduction of the revolutionary new streaming service; Disney Plus. Since then, the service has been much-loved but has also faced its fair share of criticism.

Log out of all devices

One complaint has been the lack of security features commonly found in services like Netflix, Amazon Prime, and Spotify. While no severe breaches to Disney itself have been noted, hackers initially had an easy job getting into new accounts using old passwords.

Well, Disney fans can take a slight breath of relief, as an expected, but nonetheless helpful feature has now been launched.

Disney Plus user accounts will now be able to log out of all devices, by signing in and navigating to account settings. This is pretty big, as it means that should a device be stolen, users will now be able to keep at one account safe while they update their Disney Plus password. It also means that disgruntled exes won’t be able to use your account after a nasty breakup.

Save Data mode

The other feature applies to the Disney Plus mobile app on iOS, in the version 1.5.1 update. It allows users to go into their app settings to select how they wish to stream while using mobile data.

‘Automatic’ mode will stream in the highest quality possible, while ‘save data’ mode will result in far lower quality, but will, in turn, save the user up to 75% more data.

It’s worth noting that Disney Plus allows users to stream in 4K and HD quality at no additional cost, unlike its streaming service brethren Netflix.

We expect that this service will be rolled out across all device types in the near future.

Both of these announcements are game-changers, both in terms of cyber-security and subscriber finances. The online services of Disney Plus have in some ways been slow to meet the standards of other streaming giants, but this certainly looks like a big step forward.

Better security is something that we all deserve, and we’re pleased to see the mouse taking steps towards tougher security. Make sure you avoid cybercriminals and hackers by updating your user account now to avoid a potential security breach.

And if you’re on iOS and struggling with your data usage, update your account to get the new ‘save data’ mode option to optimize the service to meet your user needs.
