Roblox Community Standards

ℹ️ This is a replica of the original Roblox Community Standards for community usage.

• The most up-to-date version can be found here.

At Roblox, we’re building the metaverse: a space for people to adventure, experience, and explore. We’re a global community on this journey together, and we want to ensure everyone feels welcome and safe and is treated with kindness and respect. That’s why we’ve created these Community Standards: to outline how we expect our users to behave, and to be clear up front about what is and isn’t allowed on Roblox.

Our Community Standards are organized into four sections:

  • Safety
  • Civility & Respect
  • Fairness & Transparency
  • Security & Privacy

These standards apply to all of your actions on Roblox and with other Robloxians, both online and at real-world events hosted by Roblox. You might notice that some of these rules prohibit things that certain other online platforms allow. That’s because of our determination to keep Roblox as safe as possible. We ask that you respect our standards — and understand that violating them may result in enforcement action against your account. We’re always learning, so as our community evolves and our platform grows, these standards may change too.

In short, when using Roblox, always remember to be kind . If you see something that you think violates the Community Standards, please let us know by using the Report Abuse feature. For more information about the legal relationship between you and Roblox, head over to our Terms of Use.

We appreciate your cooperation with these standards and commitment to making Roblox a safe and respectful space.
