IS YOUR CHILD PLAYING ROBLOX? WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW…

Advertisements

Any parent with an gaming-mad child, will know that ROBLOX is by far the most popular game around. They will also likely be aware of the dangers… a viral post last year revealed that the game was likely being used by paedophiles to groom young children and that there were also very innapropriate elements within the game itself.

Scary stuff.

“Here is the latest concern as told by EST Safety Training…

Over the past month we have spoken to over 2000 Primary School Children from the age of 5 up to 10. As we recently posted, it is clear that the majority of them are using the app/game called ROBLOX. We have recently discussed how paedophiles are chatting to children within the app often without the knowledge of their parents.
Over the past month we have seen a very worrying trend where many of the children are now telling us that they talk to a lot of their ‘online’ ROBLOX friends over the app ‘WhatsApp’ . We ask that everyone who’s child is playing ROBLOX check their device to make sure they are not now talking to strangers on WhatsApp. We are concerned that parents may not even realise their child has downloaded this app. WhatsApp can be used to send picture messages and the ability to abuse young people met within ROBLOX becomes significant. This app is also widely used by children to ‘live stream’ themselves so again the inherent risks could be high.

Please can everyone share this information so that every parent can check that their children aren’t now speaking to strangers on ‘WhatsApp’ having been asked to go there by a stranger in ROBLOX.

PLEASE NOTE WE DO NOT CLAIM TO HAVE AN IN DEPTH KNOWLEDGE OF EITHER APP AND ARE ONLY POSTING THIS BASED ON WHAT CHILDREN ARE TELLING US. BOTH APPS HAVE SECURITY SETTINGS THAT WILL MITIGATE SOME OF THE RISKS.”

The company have also recently shared some practical advice on how parents can make the game safer for their children…

Please share with all your fiends, we can never be too careful.
