Connect to Your Plex Account Using a Link Code

Our big screen apps (such as Android TV, Apple TV, smart TVs, etc.) generally allow you to connect the app to your account by way of a 4-character link code.

This allows you to connect to your account without having to laboriously enter login credentials via an on-screen keyboard or similar.


  1. The first thing you’ll generally see is an information screen, giving a little info about Plex and telling you where to sign up to create an account, if you don’t have one already.

  2. You’ll be presented with a 4-character code, which is what you’ll use to connect the app with your Plex account.

  3. In your browser on your desktop or mobile device, go to and ensure that you’re logged in your Plex account.

  4. Enter the 4-character code and submit.

  5. After the code is submitted, your player app will refresh itself a few seconds later and be linked with your account.
