Guest at Airbnb changed settings and need help getting it back to my account

Guest Mode actually isn't super useful, it just creates a blank login (no services enabled) and the reverts back to the owner login where any changes are permanent.

What is really needed is the ability to reset to a known-good state.  You set it up exactly as you want it (logged into the various TV accounts, etc.) and then if the guest logs into their own services or logs out of yours, you just reset it to the known-good setup.  This is like a factory reset, except instead of going back to the factory setup, you go back to your preferred setup.

Re: Guest at Airbnb changed settings and need help getting it back to my account

Hello! @nitts99,

A friendly welcome from the Roku Community!

We appreciate you reaching out to us. We're happy to help.

Your guests can confidently use their own app accounts and subscriptions on your Roku® streaming device with Guest Mode. Guests can enjoy free content, live TV, and music from The Roku Channel, CBS News, iHeartRadio, and more, or try out any of the 10,000+ apps that Roku offers. Guests can also add any app from the Roku Streaming Channels Store. In Guest Mode, your guests cannot access your apps, make unauthorized purchases on your card, or influence your recommendations. 

This article explains how to turn Guest Mode on and off and customize it for your guests. Instructions on how to use Guest Mode to stream content on a Roku streaming device are also available.
