Yep; correct;

The tool is a research tool for advertisers not  a research tool for the general public. I don't remember if you need to have an active campaign, but you definitely need to have a billing method in place.

The general public could use Google trends

It tells me at the end to launch my campaign but I don't want to do that is there any other solution?

You could launch the campaign and pause it immediately after.

[Edit]: the campaign has to be fully set up for using the tool, It does not  have to be running.

Still I can log in to display planner without billing details,I haven't use this account for any campaign. However I created adword account using this email address sometime back, may be that's why I still can use it?

@Nisal L : I also noticed that in one of my old accounts. I think the change was applied only for new accounts that were opened after....(pick a date...)
