Hello. Is Plex Media Server fairly secure? Would you recommend I keep it on my PC to access my media to play on Roku?

 

Thank you.

I've been using it for the past three years and no problems as of yet. So either it is fairly secure or I'm just lucky. :scratchhead:

Plex Media Server is a trustworthy programs used by a lot of people. I have friends who uses it and are really satisfied with it, they even went with Premium since they liked the product that much. You can see for yourself on Wikipedia that the program's been around for a few years and wasn't involved in anything phishy:
