Roblox

PEGI have rated Roblox PEGI 7 which means it is not suitable for persons under 7 years of. However, remember a PEGI rating does not take into consideration the presence of a chat facility. Roblox gives players the opportunity to play, build and create games. It is available on PC, Mac, iOS, Android, Amazon Devices and Xbox One.

What should I be aware of?

Chat Facility

Players can chat to each other; you can add parental controls to turn this feature off completely or add restrictions. Further information can be found here: https://corp.roblox.com/parents/

Blocking users and reporting

Roblox offers the ability to block users so as with all games your child plays, ensure they know how to block users that may be acting inappropriately, harassing, or bullying them.

Virtual Currency

Roblox is free to download and free to play. Players can however buy Robux (their virtual currency) to buy in-game upgrades or accessories. If you do not want your child to purchase them ensure your card details are not saved.

Account PINs

You can set up a 4 digit Account PIN to stop your child making any changes that you’ve set to the account. The account will also allow you to restrict access to curated content by Roblox only.
