Online Safety: Roblox (30.9.22)
Welcome to our weekly online safety bulletin! Each week of the school term, we will provide some useful tips, facts and guides on how to stay safe online.
This week's theme is: Roblox
Roblox is one of the most popular video games on the market. By 2020, the game’s makers were claiming that more than half of children in the USA play it. As a ‘sandbox’ title, Roblox offers a huge amount of creative freedom: it lets players create their own gaming experiences with the Roblox Studio to build custom levels and games, which can then be shared with other players online. Roblox fosters creative thinking and enjoys a robust online community of fans.
In the guide, you'll find tips on a number of potential risks such as online daters, in-app purchases and contact with strangers.
