Kids’ Safety Roblox Guidelines by Raven
Hi guys! Roblox is super fun, especially since you can play against real users! But wait… it can be unsafe as well. It has been known that:
People use Roblox as an online dating site.
Kids friend users and get tricked into sharing personal info.
Innocent people get hacked on Roblox easily.
There are many more things that make Roblox dangerous, these are just some things. I’m not saying that you should stop playing Roblox, that is for YOU to decide. Some people do, but if you follow these rules, you are ready to be the safest user in the game!
“Somebody wants to friend you.” But I don’t even know you! If you friend a user, you can text them and join them in games! This is fun… but sometimes, texting an unknown person causes you to lose you privacy. My advice? Don’t friend a Roblox player unless they know who they are and trust their actions in real life. This way, you can text your friends or siblings to join you in games!
Okay, it is common to get hacked. Really common. People who get hacked usually have easy passwords. (Example: same username and password, 12345678910, etc.) They might have also shared it accidentally or on purpose to people they think they could trust. The only people you should share your password to are your guardians. Unfortunately, hackers have the ability to change your email, password, and username once you get hacked, making you unable to get back on your account. Luckily, you can contact the Roblox company at firstname.lastname@example.org by giving them proof it is your account, and they could get back what was rightfully yours. Remember not to make the mistakes above or any other that could result in losing your account.
“Wanna date/marry me?” Nope. Roblox is NOT an online dating site. Block the user immediately or screenshot it and send it to the Roblox company. Roblox can fight back this user, and do anything they wish, because, well, they control it! If you say yes, chances are, they can steal your private info which may cause a lot of trouble in the future. Ignoring the user or just saying no might not help, the user can follow you and negotiate with you as well. Never trust a “dater”, no matter how friendly he/she seems.
