Roblox

Roblox has been flagged again by the police as it is a gaming hub with a chat facility.

Whilst the games are aimed at 8-18 year olds, there are no age restrictions. This means both adults and young people can play and communicate with each other on the platform.

All games are multiplayer and include a written chat feature, which is visible to players within each individual game. Users can also make and receive friend requests during gameplay and this means that they can chat to each other outside of the game.

There is also a currency system By creating games, users can earn Robux, the in-game currency. You can also buy Robux in the game. Players can spend money on items, such as membership to the Builders Club. There is the potential for children to accidently run up costs.

The police have said that It is open to abuse.
