Ever wish you could let guests access their Netflix subscription on your Roku without logging you out? Roku just added this feature hidden inside the Roku OS 9 update.
In Settings under the option to update your Roku is a new setting called “Auto Sign Out Mode.” According to Roku, “this mode enables guests to sign into subscription services using their own account credentials and will be auto signed out when they leave. Guests will not be able to access your services while in Auto Sign Out Mode.”
Here is how to enable Auto Sign Out Mode on your Roku:
To enter Auto Sign Out Mode and get your Roku device ready for your guests, you must have a PIN assigned to your Roku account. To set up a PIN, visit my.roku.com/account/PIN and sign in to your Roku account if prompted. For more help, read the detailed article about setting up a PIN for your Roku account.
Once you have a PIN assigned, you can enter Auto Sign Out Mode on your Roku device using the steps below:
- Press the Home button on your Roku remote.
- Scroll up or down and select Settings.
- Select System, followed byAuto Sign Out Mode.
- Select Enter Auto Sign Out Mode.
- Enter your PIN, select OK, and confirm.
Once you exit Auto Sign Out Mode, all your original settings are restored and channels are installed. You may need to sign in to your subscription channels again to access your content.
This mode seems perfect for a Roku in a guest room. Allow guests to easily access their content without fear of someone using it after they leave. You can learn more about Roku’s Auto Sign Out mode HERE.
