How to create or update the PIN for your Roku account

When you set up Roku Pay by linking a payment method to your Roku account, you can purchase subscriptions for channels and services available through the Channel Store, rent or buy movies and TV shows, and purchase Roku device upgrades, offers, and accessories. However, you can create a PIN (Personal Identification Number) to prevent unauthorized users in your home from making purchases and to set ratings-based playback restrictions for content on The Roku Channel. Once a PIN has been created, it must be entered to authorize any transaction, and must be entered once per session if configured for ratings restrictions on The Roku Channel.

It does not hide or filter restricted content, nor does it affect playback outside The Roku Channel, including on any other streaming channels.
