Roblox has been one of the leading brands on the market for quite some time. At its core, Roblox is a powerful web-based platform that allows its millions of registered users to create and share virtual games and experiences with other registered users. This is done via a central server which is backed up by multiple high-speed Internet connections. The most recent Roblox game, RuneScape, is among the most popular online games being played today. RuneScape allows players to role-play as either a Rune knight, a Dwarf, or even a monster in order to gather treasures, fight enemies and run dungeons.
One question I often get from parents asking whether their children can play Roblox is whether it’s safe for them. It’s always best to be safe than sorry and as long as your kids understand the limitations of this online service they should be fine. The only way to play Roblox online safely is to set up individual playrooms for each child. Setting up individual playrooms means each child gets their own Roblox account which is password protected.
When you chat with other players in Roblox chat rooms, you’re actually talking to them “in-game” and as long as they understand that and follow the rules and safety guidelines you’ve laid out for them, there’s no problem. On the other hand, Roblox chat rooms are interactive so it’s easy to accidentally invite someone to a spammer list, which is what leads to many parents asking is Roblox safe for kids to chat in? Again, if your kid knows the password to their account, whether it’s used by adults or just by their friends they should be fine. You should also keep an eye on chat messages that your kids are sending out as well. Chatting with someone who they don’t know anything about, even if it’s an adult, can lead to problems down the line.
Roblox Fantasy Violence seems to have caused the most problems. Basically, anyone who doesn’t play with Roblox games should steer clear if they want to avoid being part of a virtual community that encourages violence. However, because Roblox users play with a fantasy theme and because the games involve great amounts of violence and fantasy violence is being promoted by some kids and is becoming more so. As a parent, your job is to watch for these situations and talk to your kids about them but ultimately, you should know that the overwhelming majority of Roblox users are responsible and sensible individuals and things like Roblox Fantasy Violence will not reflect negatively on the broader Roblox community.
Another thing that many people have asked about is whether their kids can play Roblox and be safe. The answer is yes, Roblox is completely safe for kids to play and they work together with all the major gaming companies to ensure Roblox is a safe and sensible game design and this includes implementing strong coding to make sure that kids can’t gain access to any of the content in the game – even if their parents want them to. This is the same for any virtual pet or anything else that a child wants to do on the Internet.
Online Roblox play involves a lot of interactive communication between players and it’s easy for younger kids to get hooked on playing with their friends and family members online rather than playing on the computer or console. Roblox also offers a free Robox chat room that gives you and your family a chance to build up a strong community and socialize with each other as well. On the other hand, if you don’t want your children to chat with other kids you can simply block them from using the chat rooms – and if you want to play a particular Roblox game you’ll be able to find a number of them available to play with. With all the security and advanced coding Roblox has, it’s hard to imagine why anyone would choose to go anywhere else with Roblox.
