Does my community email need to match Roku account?

Jump to solution

A few days ago, I changed my email address in the community to a different one, as the old one was not receiving any notifications. I verified it, and it worked for a few days. Suddenly, no notifications, and when I checked my settings, it had gone back to the old email.

Do I have to change my main Roku email to the same? If so, do I have to re-authorize my Roku's, or will they just pick up the new email address on their own?

Thanks for the inquiry.

Your Roku Community account is linked to your Roku account information. If you wish to change the email that is being kept in the Roku Community, we would recommend changing your Roku account information through my my.roku.com.

That is what I thought as it does seem as if both use the same login screen. I went and changed it at the main Roku site. No issues, and the Roku's updated themselves automatically.

Since changing the email, that address has suddenly started getting a ton of SPAM!!

Obviously you consented to that when you provided your email to advertising-centric Roku... Smiley Wink

I have seen other reports of this happening when email addresses were changed/registered with Roku.
