Yes, you can. On the front page menu, go into Settings then select System then select Advanced System Settings. The first option on the submenu should be Factory Reset. Selecting Factory Reset will erase all of your information and unlink the device from your Roku account. After it reboots, it should perform like new. Resetting and delinking one device from your account will have no affect on your other device.

I had a similar situation with a friend as well.  Although there are some big differences.  I chose to share my own account with him.

Before I sent the Stick Plus off to him, I activated it with my own account.  I wanted to share my paid & and free apps with him remotely.  If he had an issue with it, I take care of it. 

It's been a year now.  Through.this past year,. We went through the Lockdown, riots, and strange illness that kept.us apart.  He still had the little Roku I gave him.  It is like we are together when we had to be apart.  

If we do go our separate ways, I can very easily unlink the device remotely as well and he's on his own!
