How to remove screensavers

Yesterday my 6 year old son found the screensaver setting and we scrolled and looked at them. I was appalled at what I saw. We had to quickly turn it off. There is so much inappropriate stuff that I consider porn and kids can easily get to it. I don't want this in my home. I had to try to explain to him why someone would be naked and show off their **bleep**. Please tell me how I can remove screensavers from the device other than the basic ones. I have a Roku Premiere Device.

Customer Complaints

I am extremely disappointed and frustrated to say that we will no longer be customers of these devices. We are selling our devices because of the easy access to extremely inappropriate and upsetting screensavers that they present under the settings page. On top of this, parental controls are not able to block or remove any of this content. This is extremely frustrating and for my family and many others this kind of content is upsetting and undesirable. 
 
I hope that they take this content and complaint seriously as many customers are leaving because their values are not being supported by these devices. I do not feel comfortable having this device in my home. Until changes are made, we will not be getting any devices made by this company. It is extremely disappointing and frustrating as because of this I am not able to support or protect my family the way we want to. Having such easy access to inappropriate content without the ability to block or remove in this day and age is behind the times and just unacceptable. I hope they make the change to allow this to happen, until then, I do not feel comfortable having this devices in my home and will let my friends and family know the same. This is unacceptable and we can not stand behind it.

Exactly what inappropriate content is there? I've yet to see anything but the extremely annoying Disney+ stuff on the home screen.

You do know you can set the screensaver yourself? Yes, No?

Since you mention nothing other than inappropriate content with zero examples, one can only assume you're being a bit a dramatic and clearly over the top.

Re: Customer Complaints about Settings

Yes I do know that I can change the screensavers.

I was mentioning the suggestive and inappropriate screensavers that are accessible in the options of screensavers without the ability to remove them or block access.

Well except there is nothing really inappropriate there... So there is that..

And who would go to this setting? Nobody.... People like you crack me up...

Get rid of all devices from your home and live like the Amish, when your kids turn 18 if not sooner, they will run away never to return.
