Forgot Parental code

I forgot my parental code. Do I have to factory reset my tv?

Re: Forgot Parental code

You could ask the little creeps what it is cause they probably figured it out.

Otherwise the answer is probably yes.

If you log in with the same account it should have saved your Channels and such.

Re: Forgot Parental code

[post moved to appropriate board]


Thanks for the inquiry.

When setting up parental controls you will be required to create a 4-digit PIN (Personal Identification Number) that will be used for enabling and disabling parental controls and changing related settings. Do not forget your PIN. If you do, only a factory reset will allow you to gain access to these settings. For more information on how to perform a factory reset visit our Support page here: 

Please note: Your parental controls PIN is different from your Roku account PIN.
