While various parental controls exist, there are still some instances where in-game conduct may be inappropriate, particularly for younger children, which is why we recommend that you follow the advice outlined in this Roblox parents’ guide.
Is Roblox safe for 4 year olds?
The bottom line. Roblox is a safe gaming platform for kids when parents take our expert advice seriously. Making it a rule that kids play Roblox in a shared family space where you can supervise their activity is the best way to ensure their safety.
So if you’re a Roblox or Minecraft stan and you’re sitting there arguing with strangers on the internet about which game copied who, seriously, stop. That said, it’s impossible that Roblox copied Minecraft for one simple reason: Roblox debuted in 2006 while Minecraft came out in 2009.

Ratings have been updated. The update now comes with some enhanced restrictions that say:
Gaming Entertainment Platform
Roblox games are social and multiplayer experiences. In fact, Roblox may be your child’s first experience with digital socializing. Players can comment and chat with other players within a game and also chat with their friends on Roblox. Parents can turn off Roblox’s social features (see the “Roblox Social Features” sidebar. Roblox also has a parenting guide at corp.roblox.com/parents).
While Roblox’s social features can create anxiety for parents, the social aspect of Roblox can also offer parents the opportunity to help children develop good digital habits that will last a lifetime. This is important, considering that, at some point, your child is likely to use other social networking platforms that don’t offer parental controls.
Step 4: Enable parental controls
Once you’re happy with the changes you’ve made, you can lock parental controls by enabling them.
To do this, go back to the Security tab of your Settings and toggle the switch next to Account Restrictions to “on”.
