*About Disney+ parental control

Disney+ has parental controls that subscribers can configure to ensure that each profile has an appropriate experience according to content ratings in each territory. Content with a higher rating than that of the selected profile will not be shown when browsing or searching for content.  In addition:

  • A 4-digit profile PIN can be set to restrict access by others to a specific profile. Once profile protection is activated, a password will always be required to create a new one.
  • Child profiles (already available and referred to as “Junior Mode” within the platform) offer an easy-to-navigate Disney+ interface that only includes content suitable for all ages. It also includes the “Protected Exit” feature to ensure that children do not explore other profiles without completing a challenge.

Following the integration, the standard content classification for new subscribers will be 18+, allowing access to the entire catalog. Those who already have profiles created simply need to verify that their setting is adapted to the content they wish to enjoy.

** In Caribbean, Disney+ Premium will be the only package available from June 26th.

***The audio and video quality will vary according to the subscription package, the compatible device, internet’s downloading speed and content viewed in the moment.
