If you're passing on your Roku to a new home, there's one important step you want to take before you unplug it and send it on its way: restore its factory settings.

As How-To Geek explains, your Roku account is connected to your credit card number, which is how you pay for rentals. Beyond that:

you've almost certainly logged into Netflix, Hulu, and numerous other accounts while using your Roku, and you probably don't want to give you friends lifelong access to those things either.

It's easy enough to return your device to its factory settings. Just navigate to Settings > System > Advanced System Settings > Factory Reset. Older versions might not have this option, though. Head to How-To Geek's full post, which walks you through the process for older Roku models.
