How to watch Disney+ with a VPN

First, sign up for a Disney+ subscription, and a VPN (Virtual Private Network) will supplement your subscription by providing added security. Watch Disney Plus with a VPN, as it creates a secure tunnel between your device and the internet by providing anonymity and hiding your I.P. address. A VPN also encrypts all data between your device and the internet, blocking any would-be hacker from intercepting any information.

Initially, Disney+ will only be available in the US, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, and the Netherlands, and will expand to more regions. Still, with a VPN, you can stream it from anywhere in the world as the VPN will hide your I.P. address. Watching from your smartphone, tablet, laptop, or desktop is made easier with apps available for Mac, Android, iOS, Windows, routers, Linux, and routers.

A VPN is compatible with streaming consoles such as Apple T.V., Fire T.V. Sticks, and Roku. You can also connect various Wi-Fi enabled devices such as Smart T.V.s or gaming consoles.

Will a VPN slow your Disney+ connection?

A VPN service puts an additional encryption layer on your connection, making it susceptible to slowing down. Some VPNs such as ExpressVPN have a high-speed and regularly optimized network, which means you will not notice a difference in the connection speed. If your ISP provider usually puts a throttle on the streaming services, you can bypass the ISP via a VPN, which will speed your connection.

How to set up parental controls

You can set up parental controls on Disney+ to prevent your children from accessing channels with adult content such as Hulu. Here is the step-by-step process:

  1. Log in to your Disney+ account from a device of your choice and tap on the profile name
  2. Tap on Edit Profiles and choose add profile
  3. Select an image for your new profile and type the profile name
  4. Toggle the Kids Profile on, which prevents P.G. and PG13 from displaying for this profile and save.

Conclusion

The launch of Disney+ was a revolution in the streaming service industry. A bundled subscription includes Disney+, Hulu, and ESPN+. The essence of launching Disney+ was to provide a family-oriented channel. Since Hulu has some adult content that is above P13, you can set up parental control to prevent young children from viewing adult content.
