What you should know about Roblox

Roblox is an open-world creator platform where users can access games created by other users. Many of these games are inspired by popular titles like Animal Crossing or Fortnite.

Features:

  • Game Creation: Users can create their own games within Roblox.
  • Chat Function: Roblox includes a chat feature, allowing users to interact in a social media-like environment.

Comparison with Minecraft:

  • Unlike Minecraft, Roblox lacks strict control over content.
  • New games are constantly added, making it challenging to prevent exposure to inappropriate or offensive material.

In-Game Purchases:

  • Roblox heavily relies on in-game purchases using its own currency called Robux.
  • Unfortunately, once a child spends their pocket money on Robux, they can easily be cheated out of them within the app.

Security Measures:

  • Developers are implementing security features:
    • PIN-Protected Parental Settings
    • Age Verification Tools
    • Restricted Access for Users Under 13

Moderation Challenges:

  • Moderators struggle to keep up with harassment and abuse within the game.
  • Even with filters applied to a child’s account, online predators may still find and target them.
