Re: Roku Mobile App


Thanks for the post.

In order for a user to use the Roku mobile app to control your TV, they would need to have access to your wireless network and within range of your Roku TV. 

If you are not using a mobile app to control your TV, you can disable mobile app connectivity. However, please be aware that if you disable this feature, you will be unable to connect to your TV with your own mobile device.

For more information about how to disable this feature, you can visit our Support page here: Can my Roku® streaming device be controlled using an app?
