Roblox is a collection of millions of games, all created by its gaming community.

Roblox is an online platform launched in 2006 where users go to play games developed by other users and has grown in popularity over time. In 2020, Roblox told Bloomberg that two-thirds of all American children between the ages of nine and 12 use the game.

Roblox has over 40 million users every day across the world, according to the company’s reports.

“We know there is an extremely small subset of users who deliberately attempt to break the rules,” a spokesperson told the BBC.

“We perform a security review of every image, video and audio file uploaded to Roblox, using a combination of human and machine detection,” he said.

But the problem seems to boil down to a matter of timing.

Roblox is under fire after an investigation revealed that sex parties were taking place in the game.

Roblox is under fire after an investigation revealed that sex parties were taking place in the game.

The BBC reported that condo games are usually only live for a short time – often less than an hour – before being discovered and taken down.

Roblox says it uses manual and automated systems to take games offline when discovered.

He also told the BBC they had developed ‘parental control’ tools, ‘which can be used to restrict interactions with children and the experiences they can access’.
