Q&A > How Do I Prevent Purchases on Roku?

Send us your most pressing TV viewing questions via email so we can answer them in an upcoming issue.

This week's question is from Greg who says, "I recently installed a Roku for my grandmother but she bought a bunch of movies and subscribed to a bunch of services she doesn't need without realizing it. Is there a way to lock it down so she can't spend her whole social security cheque on streaming?"

There are definitely ways for folks like Greg to prevent family members both young and old from unknowingly racking up charges on streaming devices.

When it comes to Roku, the best option is simply to skip the Roku setup step that asks you to input a credit card. If you have one tied to your Roku now, you can also remove it. You'll still be able to watch paid streaming services, but you'll have to subscribe on the service's own website which is a smart move anyways.

The other option is to require a pin code for all purchases.
