Help getting started with Roku devices, including setup, connecting your device to your TV, linking a Roku device to your account at my.roku.com/link, adding channels, subscribing to services, and more.
When I was in the process of setting up my Roku Express today, it began to update channels and continued to set up my account without requiring a link code. Is everything secure with my account as a result?
Yes, once you've linked the Roku to your user account, it will sync all channels your account has on any other Roku devices. But it won't have your user account info for channels that require authentication. So you'll still have to log into Netflix, Vudu, YouTube, etc. I believe Prime Video might be the only channel that has its credentials tied to your Roku account.

We would recommend factory resetting your device to reset all settings and return your Roku device to a state ready for initial setup.
