Adult explicit chat
Iain Morrison, 33, from Hull, was shocked to see the messages pop up within 15 minutes of starting up his son’s IPad when he decided to have a look at the “seemingly innocent” game after reading an article about it online.The former Hull KR player said he believes the game – dubbed the new Minecraft which is aimed at children aged between eight and 12 years old – is being used by adults looking to meet up with children.“They asked me to follow them to their house, then into the bedroom and asked me to lay down on top of them and then they started with the sexual movements. It was just sickening reading all the comments pop up.My kids were completely oblivious as to what the words and stuff meant.”Roblox is a great place to play fun games, express creativity and engage with friends and other members of the community.
"The safety of our community is a top priority and we're constantly assessing and improving our trust and safety measures," Roblox wrote in the email.Arnason said the centre is reminding parents to explore online games themselves before their children start playing.If there's a chat component, parents should know, and find whether it can be turned off or if there are other features to improve safety."All accounts for users that are under the age of 13 are set to only communicate with friends," he added.Reinert said the company has a moderator network to "review every image, audio, and video file" that is uploaded to the Roblox site or into any of its games.
