Archive News Release Notes

We know it’s important that every player feels safe. So with our new social features we’re also adding some new privacy features! The new privacy features affect four areas of the ROBLOX social scene:

  • Chat – for website chat
  • Party – for the new Party group chat feature coming
  • Private Message – for private messages
  • Follow – for the feature to follow friends into Games

AccountTo change your settings go to the Account section of your profile. At the bottom of the page you will see the Privacy Matrix! It’s not actually a matrix but that sounded kind of cool. You can set each feature to your most comfortable setting of privacy.

All of these settings are superseded by the Extra Privacy mode that is in place when a Parent Account changes it to that mode, or the account was created in <13 mode. Users with Extra Privacy On will not see these new privacy settings, and can not chat or send PMs.

We hope these new privacy features will help players find and play with their friends more easily! You can talk about this feature more on our forums!
