Disney + users are at risk for hacking

IDAHO FALLS, Idaho (KIFI/KIDK) - There may be a negative side to the new Disney+ streaming service which is causing new users a headache.

The Better Business Bureau says people who use the same password for multiple accounts can raise the risk for them being hacked.

But while Disney+ users aren't considered to be at risk for a scam; however, their information is compromised to have other accounts of being hacked.

The BBB is warning the public it's time to rethink how we use our passwords.

"Anytime you're signing up for a video streaming account, email account, or an account with a retailer, you want to be really careful about setting up your password," said Jeremy Johnson, Market Place Manager of the B.B.B North West and Pacific. "Many of us use the same password across many of our accounts, and that is really putting us at risk. Hackers are finding one of these passwords, and then figuring out they can access many of our accounts."

Johnson suggests using Google Chrome when making new accounts online.

In the setting preferences, you can set up a password security check-up that will notify you whenever a new device logs into one of your accounts.
