Stopping channels from being deleted and stopping guests from moving channels

Jump to solution

Does Roku have a pin code or away to setup a pin where I can block my renters from deleting certain channels and also stop my renters from moving certain channels around.  I need three channels at the top where no one should be able to remove or move them.  Please advise the solution.

Thanks for the inquiry.

There is no way to block the deletion of channels or moving channels on the Home screen. Are you sharing a single device in the household?


Thanks,
Danny

The pin requirement for adding channels works great.

Why can't the pin requirement also apply to removing channels? It's a huge pain when someone in the house removes channels and every other device is impacted. It requires every other device in the home to have to re-add the channel(s) and re-enter credentials on every device to restore the services.

It will be even worse when YouTube drops off of Roku and users won't be able to re-add it at all. 

Is this something Roku plans to address?
