Roblox raises concerns over adult content
Children's online game Roblox hit headlines last month over fears children were being exposed to nudity and 'very adult things' on the popular app.
Bredhurst Church of England Primary School issued a warning after speaking to children, who said they had online friends who they wouldn't tell their parents about - with many kids admitting they had maxed out their account with 200 friends.
The letter, which was shared nationwide across social media, read: "Many of the children stated they had received in-game messages from strangers and they hadn’t told their parents.
“All of the children said they had seen naked characters walking around the game and doing very adult things.”
Roblox insisted that safety of their community was 'a top priority' and they're continually assessing safety measures and issued a call to parents to get in touch to raise issues or concerns adding: "We want all users to be safe on Roblox, and we will continue to invest in the safety of the game so it is a positive, productive, fun and protected space for our community. We would like to hear from parents if they have questions or suggestions.” To support parents we have created a simple guide on how to set controls on the platform and provided more advice about Roblox with the help of Pocket-lint tech and games expert Andy Robertson.
