We all recognize the pitfalls of passwords: phishing, credential stuffing, social engineering, and data breaches, to name just a few. Plus, who hasn’t struggled to remember their complex password? That’s why Roblox believes in a passwordless future for our community.
We’re excited to share that our journey towards passwordless begins today with passkeys! Starting today, we are rolling out passkeys to some of our users.
Passkeys are an easier and more secure alternative to passwords. Instead of remembering complicated passwords, you can log in using the same method that you already use to unlock your device, like a numeric PIN or biometrics such as a fingerprint or face scan. This biometric data is kept only on your device and is not shared with Roblox.
Behind the scenes, passkeys use public-key cryptography to generate cryptographic key pairs that are unique to your account and specific to Roblox.
Once created, passkeys synchronize across your devices under the same Apple, Google, or Windows platform accounts or the password manager you use, ensuring your digital keys are always at hand. For more information about passkeys, refer to resources provided by Google, Apple, and Microsoft.
Implemented using FIDO2 protocols, passkeys offer strong protections against phishing, credential stuffing, social engineering, data breaches, and device thefts. We encourage everyone to set up passkeys for reduced friction and strong security.
Adding a passkey is a simple three-step process:
Navigate to Settings on your iOS app (Note: Android support is coming soon) or web browser. Log in if prompted.
Under Account Info > Login Methods > Passkeys, press the Add Passkey button.
Note: You may need to re-authenticate with your password or a one-time code sent to your email.
Your device will prompt you to use your device’s unlock method, such as your device-local biometrics or your screen lock PIN, to complete adding the passkey.
Note: For your security, only add passkeys from devices you own.
Once you’ve added a passkey, you can log into Roblox using the same method you use to unlock your device, such as Face ID, Touch ID, or a numeric screen lock.

If you have 2-Step Verification enabled on your account and choose to log in with a passkey, you will not be asked to pass a 2-Step Verification challenge. This is because having a successful login from a passkey verifies that you are in possession of your physical device. You can rest assured that the security of your account is not being compromised.
Please note that if you log in with a method that is not passkey, then you will be asked to pass a 2-Step Verification challenge as usual.
Looking ahead, we plan to roll out passkeys login to all Web and iOS users soon, with Android support not too far behind! Plus, we’re focused on improving the ease of adding passkeys, ensuring a broader adoption among Roblox users for a secure and streamlined account access experience.
Passkeys login is a huge leap forward in enhancing both user experience and security for Roblox accounts. Please let us know your feedback or questions!
