A Word To Parents About Roblox
Parents need to know that many games include weapons and can be violent. Recommended children’s age for using the Roblox website is starting from 10 years old.
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. However, there have been reports of users thwarting the chat and exchanging inappropriate/predatory messages with young players. Therefore, parents should know when their kids are playing on the Roblox website or connecting with people they have just met in the game.
Moderation of content also seems to be hit or miss. While the company claims that it tries to prevent inappropriate comments, there are plenty of users that claim they’ve been exposed to inappropriate comments and requests from other users.
There are in-game currency items called Robux that you can use to unlock additional items, but you can either earn these slowly or pay for additional cash with real money. Users can also sign up for a membership for extra content and can insert in-game ads into their created games, potentially making money from their games.
