Why can’t I add or remove a device?

posted on 2016/08/27

You can register up to ten devices at a time. You need to be in the account owner’s profile to add or remove devices.
Having issues registering a device? Firstly, check it’s compatible with DisneyLife. Secondly, make sure you haven’t already hit ten devices. These articles will help with this: Ways to Watch and How do I add or remove devices?
If you’re still having trouble, try the following steps. Check after each one to see if the problem’s been fixed.

Check your internet

  • Check your connection speed. If lots of devices are sharing one Wi-Fi connection, your internet may be slow. This can affect device registration.
  • Check your connection strength. Is your device a long way from your router? If so, try moving closer.
If your device won’t connect or has an unstable connection, check out What can I do if my app isn’t connecting to the internet?

Restart your devices

  • Switch off both devices completely. Once they’ve shut down safely, switch them on again.                                                                          
Restarting your devices – both the one you’re trying to register, and the one you’re registering from – is often the simplest way to fix this issue.

Update your device

  • Make sure your device is running on the latest version of operating system. To find out more about how to update your device go to your device manufacturer’s website.
  • DisneyLife is compatible with iOS 8 or above.
