Re: Wifi and Bluetooth Security

Thanks for the inquiry, @FedCURE.

It’s crucial to have strong password protection on your router for security reasons but also to keep those pesky next-door neighbors from sucking up your bandwidth.

You also suggest turning the Bluetooth auto-play feature off (or on) only when the Bluetooth channel is open.

  1. If it is not already open, launch the Bluetooth channel on your Roku device.
  2. Press the Star button star button on Roku remote on your Roku remote to access playback options.
  3. Scroll up or down and highlight Bluetooth auto-play.
  4. Switch the setting to Off (or On).

For full information on this, you can take a look at this link: How do I prevent the Bluetooth® channel from opening unexpectedly? | Official Roku Support

Let me know if you have any other questions, and have a good day!
