Roblox is one of the most popular apps and games for children. On our recent child protection training we have been told of some concerns around this app. There are many fun games within this app but it is also open to inappropriate content, chat and exposes some children to random people on line and cyber-bullying. If your child uses Roblox, please be aware of the settings that can be changed to make it more safe. The game is rated 7+ with parental permission needed. Read this guide here
