How to delete a Disney+ profile

Disney+ enrolled more than 10 million subscribers in the first 24 hours of launch. Although the release wasn’t exactly seamless, users still have a lot to look forward to, with content from Marvel, Lucasfilm, Pixar, and National Geographic, not to mention Disney’s extensive vault of classic films and Disney Channel original movies and shows. Oh, and don’t forget high-profile shows like The Simpsons.

With such an enormous content library, Disney+ has something for everyone. And to make sure everyone in your home can take advantage of it, Disney+ allows you to set up to 10 distinct profiles so everybody using an account can access personal watchlists, save shows to watch later, and receive better recommendations via Disney’s algorithm. After all, your 3-year-old might not quite grasp the nuances of The Simpsons episodes the system recommends based on your watch history.

That being said, 10 profiles might seem like a lot. If you got excited in the first week and created a profile for every member of your family — dog included — you may want to dial it back and make room for others to access your account. Fortunately, Disney+ makes it incredibly easy to remove a profile, though the method for doing so will differ depending on how you created the profile.
