Netflix - Username and Password

Postby JimmyJoeBob » Sat Jul 14, 2012 11:18 am

Recently, it was suggested to me that it would be prudent for me to change my Username(email address) and password to the Netflix service. If I do this, will it affect my three Roku boxes? If there is an affect, how would I overcome it? Thanks.

If your Rokus are already linked, changing your password on the Netflix website SHOULDN'T affect it. That said, I'm not sure you can change your email address with the service, but you'll have to go to the site to see.

Well, my Username on the Netflix service is my Email Address. I have determined that I can change that. They also allow me to change my Password. So, what you are telling me is that as long as my Roku Boxes are already linked to my Netflix account, Username and Password changes to Netflix will be seamlessly passed from Netflix to Roku thru the existing links? That is what I was hoping to hear.

The recent NVIDIA Forums Hack Attack is what prompted this question. I am in the process of changing username and passwords to all my various websites, forums and online games (several hundred are involved). I recently acquired KeePass & Password Generator to keep from ever having to do this again.

As far as I know, Netflix, and all the other channels that require it, use the serial number of the box for linking and authentication. Your account password and user name shouldn't make any difference.
