What is Roblox?
Roblox is the world’s largest interactive gaming platform, enabling children to co-imagine, create and play in immersive 3D worlds. All games and experiences on roblox have been created by the players. Once a player has created an avatar, they are given their part of the property along with a virtual tool for building (known as“Robblox studio”). They can be used to buy more Avatar accessories or additional capabilities in one of the millions of experiences available on the platform, then “robux” (roblox is our virtual currency) can make money from their creations to win. Roblox gives players a safe place to play, chat, and collaborate on creative projects. If it is so inclined, they can continue to learn all at their own pace, for others how to build and experience code drifting.
Depending on, a Silicon Valley, CA-based nonprofit organization dedicated to educating users of technology related to security, privacy and security, has published a useful guide to educating parents how to promote good digital habits for children. The guide also outlines the options available for parents to provide a safe and enjoyable experience on roblux. Download the manual by clicking here.
Is roblox trained?
First, there is a respected theory called “constructivist” that is put forward by Seymar papert of the mit Media Lab and that allows children to learn the best about the active roles of the designer and developer, and this learning is accelerated when taking these roles in a public forum. We support this theory.
Many of our users have tried to build complex structures and solve difficult problems that they know that their work will be seen and stolen by others. Our platform provides a free development engine called “Roblox studio”, which allows the player to create something from simple drag-and-drop building experiences for complex multiplayer games. Millions of kids have used our tools to create ultimate theme park, a professional racing car driver, stars in a fashion show, be super heroes, or just imagine what it’s like to build a dream home and hang out with your friends. The level of creativity that our players show, along with the time and care they spend building, will never surprise us.
What does roblox do to protect the security and privacy of my children?
We take children’s safety and privacy very seriously. The roblox family online Security Institute (fosi) is part of a distinguished group of companies of the Board of Directors of a non-profit organization dedicated to ensuring the safety of children on the internet. We are constantly trying to develop new and innovative technologies that players can imagine, create and play in a family-friendly environment.
Roblox is also a member of kidSAFE Seal program approved by the Federal Trade Commission as an authorized safe haven under the child’s Online Privacy Protection Act (Coppa). We undertake to take reasonable steps to protect the privacy of our users under the age of 13 and to prevent them from sharing personal information through chat messages or games. FOR MORE INFORMATION ON Coppa, please refer to this simple one-page informational guide from the kidSAFE Seal program.
Although users age 13 and older can set up more account settings and have an expanded vocabulary list, roblox uses a filtering system and a moderated team to prevent and secure players from sharing personally identifiable information. In addition, we allow parents to activate a setting in their children’s account, allowing them to access a banned list of games for children under 13. This feature can be set from the Security tab under “account restrictions” on the Account Settings page.
On March 2, 2017, we added additional features that further enhance our child safety initiatives.:
Parental controls that enable parents to turn off chat.
Parents easily age visibility to determine which age suits their children.
Chat controls for a wider restriction of words under tighter 13s.
We will not tolerate the expansion of our team for the game and content more aggressive deletion behavior.
Further development of our guide for our developer community in terms of content and experiences that are not allowed to play.
On June 15, 2017, avatar editor and avatar thumbnails added an auto detection feature designed to make sure all players wearing appropriate clothes. If the system detects that a user is not wearing an avatar shirt or trousers, it automatically assigns a default set of clothes for him.
We protect the safety of our players by proactively filtering inappropriate content and acting against anyone who violates our Code of conduct. All uploaded images, video and audio files are pre-reviewed by moderators for appropriate content before the site is allowed. Our moderation team also review reports of abuse around the clock online. Players can report inappropriate chat messages or content using the report abuse system located throughout the site and game. In addition to reporting any violation of the rules, players may also completely block other chat or chat with them on the game or website. For more information, please click here to see our help.

You can also purchase an optional “builders club” membership, which provides extra privileges such as access to premium products for customizing the cooler avatar, no screen ads, and being able to manage multiple locations to build.
What can I do to keep my child’s account safe?
For general security, we recommend all players:
Always use a strong password that is unpredictable.
Keep their account and personal information to themselves.
Enable 2-step verification to prevent foreigners from accessing the roblex account.
Roblox does not ask for a password to any player. Report such messages instantly by clicking on report abuse links around the site and in each game menu. For more safety tips, please click here to see our help.
How does Chat work with Roblox?
Roblox uses a state-of-the-art filtering system that is effectively filtered for inappropriate conversations on the site and in the game. This system is monitored and dynamically adjusted to prevent any new tipping. While users of all ages are in this filtering system, we go one step further for users to protect their privacy and security by placing a limited chat of less than 12 and below. When a user logs on to Roblox under age 12, they are placed in Control settings automatically so that they can only directly message other users who are considered friends on Roblox.
We also provide parents with the ability to restrict or disable site and in-game chat. This setting can be set from the Privacy tab on the Account Settings page.
What should I do if my child uses a third-party program to talk to other people other than robox?
As a parent, it is important to understand all the applications your child uses on your computer or phone and stay awake. Parents should have ongoing conversations with their children to determine whether these programs are age appropriate. It is also a good idea to know how to remind them about basic online safety tips when talking to your kids and online. This includes not disclosing online personal information, and notifying you immediately if you encounter threats or inappropriate or unwelcome behavior.
Can I customize the security settings in my child’s account on roblox?
Yes, users 13 years and older can customize their security settings. However, for users aged 12 and under, we take extra precautions to ensure their security and privacy so that they can communicate directly to other users who are accepted as friends only on <url> by automatically applying more restricted settings.
To add more security to roblox, you can enable 2-step verification in your child’s account. This feature can be found on the Account Settings Security tab. For more information about this security update, visit the following Microsoft Web site:
Is there another official roblox site?
No. Just https://www.roblox.com and ending with sites .roblox.com / are legal robox supported websites. Beware of third-party sites that offer things like “free” or cheap robux, etc.these sites are scams created to control your child’s Lebib yalkin account and collect personal information and money.
