Hello guys, i am new to using plex and i don't know what to do in the below mentioned scenario :-
When i select source on my Samsung TV, my plex server also shows up(not the app) and i can enter in it without any authentication and it shows everything in file explorer kind of view. How can i set any type of authentication for it.

    you can't. That's accessing via DLNA, and DLNA doesn't support authentication.

    The best you can do is disable the DLNA server in the Plex server settings.
