Solution 2: Disable Browser Extensions

Browser extensions are used to enhance browser functionality. However, you may encounter the error under discussion if any of the browser extensions are interfering in the operation of the browser or site. In this context, disabling the problematic extensions may solve the problem. VPN and adblocking extensions (Ublock Origin, Ghostery, Stands are few to name) are known to create this issue.

For elucidation, we will guide you through the process for the Chrome browser as it is practically impossible to cover all the browsers. Moreover, some browsers have built-in adblocking functionality (e.g. Shields in the Brave browser), so, make sure any of such features in not hindering in the operation of the Disney Plus website.

Solution 3: Disable the VPN Client of Your System

VPNs are used to bypass the ISP restrictions and safeguard the privacy of the user. But Disney Plus has blacklisted nearly all are the IPs suspected to belong to a VPN (you can try a less known/used VPN), so, the issue at hand could be a result of using a VPN client. In this case, disabling the VPN client may solve the problem.

  1. Launch the VPN client of your system.
    Disabling the VPN client
  2. Now click on the disable/disconnect button and then check if the log in issue is resolved.

Solution 4: Use Incognito or In-Private Mode of Your Browser

Nearly all the modern browsers have an incognito or private mode, in which the browser creates a temporary session of the user that is isolated from the main session of the browser and user data. You may encounter the error at hand if any element of the main session of the browser or user data is hindering the operation of the Disney Plus site. In this case, accessing the site in the incognito or in-private mode may solve the login problem.

  1. Launch a web browser and open its incognito or in-private mode.
    Incognito icon
    Incognito Mode
  2. Now check if you can log in to the site. If so, then try to find the problematic setting/feature of your browser causing the issue. If you cannot find the problematic settings, then either you have to use the incognito/in-private mode of your browser while accessing the Disney Plus site or reset your browser to the defaults.

In this case, resetting the router to the factory defaults may solve the problem. But your personalized router settings (user name, password, SSID, etc.)  will be lost after resetting the router. For illustration, we will guide you through the process of a Netgear router.

  5. Now connect your router to the internet and then to the PC (make sure PC is not connected to another wired or wireless network).
  6. Now launch a web browser and check if you can log in to the Disney Plus website.

Solution 7: Try Another Network

ISPs deploy different techniques and methods to manage web traffic and safeguard its users from online threats. However, this error occurs if an essential resource required for the operation of Disney Plus is blocked by your ISP. The same can be confirmed by trying another network.

  1. Disconnect your system from the current network.
  2. Now connect your system to another network. If no other network is available, then try to use the hotspot of your phone, and hopefully, you can log in to the Disney Plus website.
    Turn On Hotspot of Your Mobile

If nothing has worked for you, then the log in issue could be a result of a temporary bug in the browser. In this case, trying another browser may solve the problem. If the issue persists in the other browser, then you may have to contact the support of Disney Plus to check if the IP address of your PC/network is not blacklisted.
