Disney + now bars users who abuse false information to take advantage of the seven-day free streaming platform. Tutorial for illegal “free access” to the content went viral and even received a tutorial on YouTube, and implied that users generate fake credit card and social security numbers.
Due to an oversight or to protect the performance of the system, the Disney + registration was not checking if the card number was really true, without checking if it was possible to charge the number informed. The registration required little information – email, full name, password, CPF and credit card data – and did not check the authenticity of the data.
Once noticed, the trick quickly became popular with users and yielded videos on YouTube explaining the method to get Disney + for free. The instructions contained the use of a website to generate valid credit card numbers, accompanied by another tool to create a fake CPF – or probably, someone else’s.
Naturally, the “smarties” questioned themselves on social networks that the method stopped working; but it was just a standard and necessary measure of the platform. In tests, the Tecnoblog website found out if the situation had really been solved and when registering a properly blocked card, Disney + denied the registration after having the test charge denied by the operator.
Disney + arrived in Brazil on November 17, 2020 and costs R $ 27.90 per month or R $ 279.90 per year. The service features a catalog of original Disney shows and series or their productions – such as Marvel, Pixar, Star Wars and National Geographic – and extras such as The Simpsons and other Fox titles, the company’s recent acquisition.
