I will NOT be joining new ROKU Forum

I keep getting nagging messages to make sure my email matches my Roku(s)

I will not COMPLY

I will not have Roku doing even more SPYING on me, then selling data on me without my real consent (consent with a gun to your head).

I suggest others also refuse to comply.

It needs to match so they can verify you are a legit Roku customer as a spam prevention.
Not everything is a conspiracy.  I mean, they already have your email address, what more does matching it with your Forum profile do?  "Oh know!  They now know my problems with the device!!!"

Krull, go in peace. I think you're off base, but you are entitled to your feelings and beliefs.

Re: I will NOT be joining new ROKU Forum

I mean, he's not wrong here about the data collection, it's fairly rampant... check out my DNS blacklists (for the IoT "untrusted" VLAN):


The only device(s) we have which are anywhere even close as chatty would be the Google Home smart speakers, but we have four of them compared with a single Roku TV and they still generated less (combined) requests than the tv.  I highly recommend everyone implement some form of DNS blacklisting on their networks.  I've found Pi-hole to be both wonderful and fairly easy to set up, but is by no means the only way to approach this.
