Netflix and Roku are a perfect combination for your home entertainment. With Netflix on Roku, you can stream live matches, movies, documentaries, soaps, and any films of your choice.
But for a reason, you may want to stay logged out. You may have logged in with an old account that you want to change, or you simply do not want the platform anymore. It’s also illogical to stay signed in Netflix on Roku on multiple devices.
Logging out of Netflix on Roku differs with different devices. If you have the old Roku models, it will involve several steps. The updated Roku Model is an easy-to-sign-out procedure.
Whichever device you have, we have a simple tutorial that covers almost all the Roku Players. We will guide you on logging out of Roku 3 & 4, Roku 1, Roku 2, and other Roku player devices in your setup. In addition, we have a tutorial for you to sign out of your Netflix account remotely.
How to log out of Netflix on Roku: Methods
There are different ways you will use to log out your Netflix channel on Roku. Any of the below methods can get you out of the account;
1. Log out Netflix on Roku Remotely
You may not have access to your Roku device, but you would like to log out. Other methods that we will discuss later after this option may not work either. What’s the solution? Try these two ways to get out of your Netflix account successfully:
- Use Your Netflix Account
You have a Netflix account that you signed up with initially. Whether Android or iOS, it is possible to log in and out of the Netflix account with your computer or mobile device. But you must have your login details.
- Get into the account on your device by keying in your credentials.
- Click on your profile and Visit the section Sign Out of All Devices.
- Choose to sign out. You will log out of all devices you used to access Netflix, but you didn’t log out.
A drawback with this method is that it isn’t selective. You will be kicked out of all the devices all at once without sparing even the one you are using to log out. But that’s what you wanted. Right?
- Use Your Roku Account
This option is workable if the Roku account is yours, meaning that you bought the device and set it up under your name or account. If you can’t sign out of your Netflix account, you can use your Roku account.
Another solution would be to disconnect your entire Roku account from your device. The action will log you out of all Netflix accounts and any other channel that is on Roku.
In addition, this is similar to unlinking the hardware device from your Roku account. All the apps available will also go away. We do not advise this method to disconnect you from other accounts that you do not wish to log out of.
So, what are the steps for this option?
- Log into your Roku account from a web browser.
- Roll down to the available list of the devices linked to Roku devices.
- Select Unlink. This action will log you out of Netflix from your Roku.
2. Log Out Of Netflix On Roku 1
Roku 1 is an earlier version of the device with fewer features than 2,3,4 and others. If you have this device in your home, you will find the below steps helpful and different from other Roku devices.
To log out of Netflix on Roku 1, you have to deactivate the device from your Netflix account as follows;
- Open Roku 1 Settings.
- Press the home toggle to get to the Roku 1 Settings menu.
- On the menu, choose Netflix Settings.
- Tap on “Deactivate This Player From My Netflix account.” The step will deactivate your device from your Netflix account.
When you log out of Netflix from Roku 1 player, you will not affect the Roku device as the two work independently. But beware that when you kick out your Netflix account from Roku 1, you will have to reauthorize the device for you to enjoy viewing Netflix content on the same Roku TV.
To reactivate Netflix later, you will select the Netflix app from the same home screen and follow prompts.
3. Log Out Of Netflix On Roku 2
Logging out of Netflix on Roku 2 is different from Roku 1. The process does not spare the Netflix channel but removes it entirely.

The five methods above will kick Netflix out of Roku, but for some reason, you may find it difficult to access the channel’s settings menu. Sometimes, the Netflix interface doesn’t allow you to locate the Settings menu, popularly displayed as a gear icon. You will then get the options Sign out, Start Over, Deactivate or Reset.
A worthy note to take home is that only use the specific Roku remote when following this sequence. A regular TV remote will not execute the above commands.
