Roku is an incredibly popular streaming platform, but it isn't perfect. Whether you have had enough and are ready to leave, or want to start a new account from scratch, Roku makes it easy to say goodbye. You should still be careful to not miss any steps in the process of canceling your Roku account.
Note: You can only cancel your Roku account on the Roku website. Currently there is no way to cancel your account on the device.
How to cancel a Roku account
- Visit my.roku.com on a computer, phone or tablet.
- Sign in using the Roku account you want to cancel.
- Find the section labeled My linked devices.
- If you still have any linked devices, click unlink . You should also factory reset these devices.
- Find the section Manage your subscriptions . If you still have any active subscriptions, be sure to cancel them now.
- Find the option labeled Deactivate account and click it.
- Confirm your deactivation.
Your account will now be canceled, and you will be logged out since the account no longer exists. You can now create a new account if you plan to continue using a Roku device, or start setting up a different streaming device.
