How to keep the App Remote from having others control Roku TV

So I have roommates that like to mess with me and they get on my roku tv and mess with it when I am on it. Is there any way to keep them from having them on my account with out having to worry about the WiFi because we all share the same one. Thank you

Thanks for the inquiry.

We would recommend creating a PIN for your Roku account.

For more information about a Roku PIN, visit our Support page here: How do I create or update the PIN for my Roku account?

Alternately, you can also disable mobile app control in Settings. 


Thanks,
Danny

Re: How to keep the App Remote from having others control Roku TV

I’ve got the same problem. Is there a way to  Set a pin so that anyone using the remote app has to type in the pin in order to be able to use it to control my Roku tv/other Roku devices.

Re: How to keep the App Remote from having others control Roku TV

Me and my wife have the same issue with the person we are temporarily staying with he had connected his spectrum remote and downloaded a remote on his phone for my tv because I hid my actual remote so he’d stay off it he’s been trying to control it ever since I got the tv is there a way I can block both remotes ? So he will stay off my **bleep** tv?
