Roblox uses a combination of chat filters, both human and software moderation, to proactively remove inappropriate content from the platform.
Customizable Parental Controls
Parents can limit or disable online chat capabilities and restrict access to a curated list of age‑appropriate games.
Avatar Clothing Detection
An automated detection feature ensures that all players are wearing appropriate attire within the avatar editor and avatar thumbnails.
