Internet Safety - Information for Parents

Latest update on Roblox (10+) - Comments provided by Commonsense Media 
 
Parents need to know that Roblox is a game-creation site where users design and upload their own games, as well as play other games in a multiplayer environment. Some of the gameplay is advanced, and many games include weapons. The site offers a safe-chat mode for those under 13, as well as a parent login that lets you oversee your child's use of the site. There have been reports of users thwarting the chat and exchanging inappropriate/predatory messages with young players; although we haven't encountered that directly during our extensive use of the site, parents may still want to be wary when their kids are using the site or connecting with people they've just met. There are in-game currency items called Robux that you can use to unlock additional items, but you will either earn these slowly or pay for additional cash with real money. They can also sign up for a membership for extra content and can insert in-game ads into their created games, potentially making large sums of money off their unique ideas.
 
Please can we urge you to visit the following pages if your child has accessed this website/plays this game.
