Roku Streaming Sticks
Überprüft am: 9. November 2022
Roku is the streaming TV device company that focuses solely on streaming TV. From streaming sticks to connected soundbars to their Roku TVs, they give you lots of "channels" in their app store--everything from standards like Netflix and Hulu, to YuppTV for those can't miss south Asian channels and FunimationNow for the anime lovers. News, weather, sports, classic cartoons, Bollywood HD and Pokémon TV. Roku has something for everyone. They also collect lots of data so they can target ads for everyone too.
Was könnte passieren, wenn etwas schiefgeht?
Roku likes to know as much about you as they can, but it doesn't stop there with the data collection. Rolu also says they can combine data from “data providers” -- which feels like a pretty vague term that could likely include anything from advertising companies to data brokers to social media -- with the data they collect on you.
Roku’s data sharing is vast, which is, unfortunately, too common in the streaming TV space. Automatic Content Recognition or ACR is the way Roku and others try to identify every show you watch whether it be streaming, cable, broadcast on an antenna, or even the DVDs you watch. They collect all this data to target you with new shows, and allow you to be targeted with lots of ads from lots of places. It’s a lot of data collection and you should opt out. Note when you opt out of ACR, a Roku spokeswoman said, “Opting out of ACR does not affect collection of information about the use of Roku streaming channels.” So yeah, they’re still collecting data on you, just a little less. Consumer Reports also recommends you take the time to do things like opt out of allowing Roku to access the microphone on your Roku remote control or your mobile device for voice-activated features.
Tipps zu Ihrem Schutz
- Turn off ACR (Automatic Content Recognition) on all your Roku devices
- Turn access to the microphone off on your Roku device.
- Limit ad shraring in your Roku privacy settings.
- Do not sign up with third-party accounts. Better just log in with email and strong password.
- Chose a strong password! You may use a password control tool like 1Password, KeePass etc
- Use your device privacy controls to limit access to your personal information via app (do not give access to your camera, microphone, images, location unless neccessary)
- Keep your app regularly updated
- Limit ad tracking via your device (eg on iPhone go to Privacy -> Advertising -> Limit ad tracking) and biggest ad networks (for Google, go to Google account and turn off ad personalization)
- Request your data be deleted once you stop using the app. Simply deleting an app from your device usually does not erase your personal data.
- When starting a sign-up, do not agree to tracking of your data if possible.

Umgang mit Schwachstellen
An independent cybersecurity review into Roku paid for by Mozilla found, "An enumeration of the Roku website’s online resources and various bug bounty programs revealed a lack of an established vulnerability management system." And, "In terms of vulnerability disclosure, Roku appears to lack a dedicated contact for disclosing security vulnerabilities. Generic support is provided via https://support.roku.com/, though no point of contact for security related issues or even a bug bounty program is offered."
