Error attempting to sign in to mobile app on second iPhone

I just purchased a Roku TV today and set up a Roku account. The mobile app launches and signs me in just fine on my iPhone 12 Pro but I am unable to sign into the account on my wife’s iPhone 11 Pro. “ERROR Something went wrong, please try again later.”  I am wondering if there is a way to fix this.

Re: Error attempting to sign in to mobile app on second iPhone

I have the same problem. Roku Tv works fine. Roku mobile app on android phone works fine, but Roku mobile app on tablet won't allow sign in with email and password. Have restarted app, tablet, uninstalled app, reinstalled app, restarted tablet, and still Roku mobile app won't accept exact same sign-in credentials that work on android mobile phone. It's very frustrating because I was planning to use tablet as Roku remote. Also, this tablet accepts same sign-in credentials for Roku smart home app.

Re: Error attempting to sign in to mobile app on second iPhone

  • Have you tried logging in to the browser or computer? YES, it works
  • Do your login credentials match and let you sign in when trying on a browser or other phone? (Try changing the password if not) YES logins match, YES, login to browser works, NO login to android tablet does not work
  • Is your mobile phone connected to the same wireless network as your Roku device? YES, Roku device (TCL 65R635) is hard-wired into same router/network as android tablet
  • Is your Apple or Android software version compatible? I don't know and this may be the problem. I am using an Amazon Fire HD10 tablet with the Google play store installed. It appears that this tablet gets disqualified from participating in the Roku/Android app sign-in because it is not a regular generic android OS; it is the Amazon Fire OS, instead of Android. Is this why I can't sign into the app on this tablet? I just wanted to use this tablet as a remote which I can do just fine in guest mode. If I'm using an Amazon tablet with the Roku app, is it guest mode only for me?
  • What are the troubleshooting steps that you have taken? All that were suggested previously

  • Version of the Roku mobile app that your mobile device is using.
  • Error codes/messages prompt when accessing the Roku mobile app.
  • Tried using alternative,s such as a mobile hotspot, to see if you're able to access it?

Please keep us posted.
