Children have enjoyed playing ROBLOX since 2011 where they can create characters and play in open online worlds which are also created by its users. The app specifies that a kid-friendly chat system limits the amount of engagement younger players have with strangers. However, as with all social networks, it does not eliminate engagement with strangers and children often receive friend requests from people they do not know.
MESSAGE TO PARENTS
We advise every parent to:
•Check their child’s ROBLOX account, as well as any other online games that they play.
•Check that their online friends are known.
•Speak with your child about staying safe online and monitor their usage.
•Parents to uninstall App from child’s phone if worried or concerned about usage
