General Online Safety Advice

Before you set your child free to roam Roblox, it is important to guide them on how to have a safe experience online. Here are some of the top tips:

  • Protect yourself. Remind your child to never share any of their personal information online, even with friends. That includes passwords and telling people where they live or how old they are.
  • Parental Controls. Familiarize yourself with the websites or platforms your child uses most frequently. Many allow parents to customize the safety and privacy settings. To find out how to use Roblox’s parental controls, click here.
  • Play Nice. It feels great to be a positive person, and your child will find that when they’re nice to others it’s infectious. When everyone’s nice, everyone has a great time!
  • Know What To Do. Teach your child how to deal with online issues. Show them how to report and mute others. Encourage them to talk to you if they see something that makes them uncomfortable. Reassure them that they’re not tattling, but rather helping someone who’s having a hard time.
