Concerns Regard ROBLOX

Posted on October 17, 2017 at 7:55 AM

We are putting out this post following our visit to a school yesterday. As most people know we are concerned about the popular app ROBLOX which is by far the most popular game played by children from 5 to 10 years of age.

We were talking to a very large group of year 1 students and we were shocked when over half of them said they were playing ROBLOX. When we spoke to Year 2 at least 70 percent of them were playing the game.

Most of these children then disclosed that they had online friends in ROBLOX that their parents didn’t know about. It got worse when many of the children stated they had received many in game messages from ‘strangers’ and that they hadn’t told their parents. All of the children then stated that they had seen ‘naked’ characters walking around the game and that the characters were doing very adult things.

The inappropriate content has been disclosed to us thousands of times by young children but we were previously unaware that the children were being sent numerous messages. When talking to Year 3 students they suggested that a lot of the messages are inappropriate. In all cases the children aren’t telling their parents.

Most of the young children we spoke to yesterday appear to have been talking to strangers in the game by using a headset to speak. The headset is usually just a normal set of ear pods that you would get bundled with an Apple device as opposed to a specific gaming accessory.

We would advise every parent to check their child’s ROBLOX account and look to see if they have friends that they do not know. Many of the children we spoke to yesterday said their accounts were ‘maxed out’ meaning they have 200 online friends.

We would also ask parents to check the child’s in game message inbox to check if they have been receiving inappropriate messages. We have included the most up to date app icon to make it easier for people to spot.

As people will know we have previously posted about this app and spoke of very concerning incidents.

PLEASE CAN EVERYONE SHARE THIS POST SO THAT PARENTS KNOW TO CHECK THEIR CHILDS ACCOUNT

Allardyce only played for the Rowdies for five months but the adventure provided him with the managerial know-how which today sees him in pole position for the England post.

You actually make it appear so easy with your presentation however I to find this matter to be actually something which I feel I might by no means understand. It seems too complex and very large for me. I'm having a look forward on your next publish, I will attempt to get the cling of it! http://compre.goodprizwomen.com/advice-girlfriends/oscar-och-clot

Ok first of all there are no naked characters I have been on this platform for about 5 years now and in my life I have not seen naked characters the only way to do that is by doing a glitch, a glitch fixed during 2017 the year I created my new account. I have about 200 friends and all they do is help me in games and some don't even join my game of talk at all! Roblox has a very strict chat and moderation system so this would be impossible. I cant even say numbers!!

We mentioned Robux a couple of times already, Robux is the digital currency that is used by Roblox; a popular creative videogame. So if you want in-game goodies without having to spend your own money, you can do that with the help of ROCash. For more information at www.rocash.com
