Is Roku safe for my kids?

Seeing that there are tons of channels, shows, and movies that users are able to stream, not all titles may be appropriate for children of all ages. That being said, this app can be safe for children with parental supervision.

Parental controls when using the Roku can be quite tricky for users because not only does Roku stream from antennas, they also work with many other streaming services.

The best way for parents to keep their kids safe is to look at the parental control options featured on each specific streaming channel as well as create a PIN number that will prevent any additional unwanted content from being downloaded.
