Social Security Number Required?

Wed Feb 02, 2011 10:11 pm

Does Roku require my social security number and or credit card number to register? If so, I need to send back my new Roku box that is coming from Amazon. I don't want to give out my SS number.
Thanks,
Anda

As far as I'm aware, you are never asked for your SSN. They have implemented a means to purchase channels directly in the channel store so you are now asked to enter a CC or PayPal account (I believe, not entirely sure about the PayPal) but if that makes you uncomfortable, I think there is a way around it. Contacting customer support might be a way to resolve that.

Hope you enjoy it.

If you have any problems setting it up, try posting in the forum on here titled Roku Streaming Player General Discussion (up at the top). That forum gets a lot more activity than this general Roku forum.
