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.

How to delete a profile on Disney+

Step 1: From your primary profile’s homepage, tap or click your Character in the upper-right corner.

Step 2: Select Edit Profiles on the resulting drop-down menu.

Step 3: Click on the profile you want to delete, scroll down and select the blue Delete Profile button, then confirm your decision.

If you have to watch one Disney+ movie this April, stream this one
An imagined underwater alien civilization in Aliens of the Deep.

It would be understandable if Disney+ subscribers feel a little jealous of Hulu in April. That's because the new additions to Hulu include The Big Lebowski, The Fifth Element, Hellboy, Ocean's 11, Jumanji: The Next Level, and even Wonder Woman. The only major Disney+ movie to debut in April was Wish. For families with kids or animation lovers, Wish might be enough. But when picking the one movie to watch on Disney+ in April, we decided to dive a little deeper into the streaming catalog. That's how we settled on our choice for the one Disney+ movie that you have to watch this month: Aliens of the Deep.

Between the premiere of Titanic in 1997 and Avatar in 2009, director James Cameron threw himself into the realm of underwater exploration and directed or co-directed two documentary films. Cameron's first documentary, Ghosts of the Abyss, is not on Disney+. But Aliens of the Deep has a permanent home here. This movie was originally an IMAX release and it was filmed in IMAX 3D. The streaming experience may not be able to replicate that, but Aliens of the Deep is still visually dazzling even in 2D. And now, we'll share the three reasons why you should watch Aliens of the Deep this month.
It's one of James Cameron's passion projects
