You can easily lock access to your child’s Roblox account settings by creating a four-digit PIN.

Once enabled, there will be an additional layer of security to protect their account details — including your password, email address, and privacy settings. How to set up a parent PIN:

  • Log in to your account. If you have forgotten your password or can’t get access, follow Roblox’s guidance to recover your password.
  • Go to Account Settings. In the browser, select the gear icon located at the top-right corner. On mobile apps, the settings are in the three-dots menu.
  • Create your PIN. In the settings menu, select the Parental Controls tab, then toggle the button to turn on (and create) a PIN.

Unfortunately, you can't guarantee that your children won't see inappropriate content online — accidentally or intentionally. Start by talking to your child about what they saw. Provide a safe space. Many children keep problems secret from their parents because they fear they might get in trouble.

Only you can determine what is appropriate for your family. Many parents refer to The Entertainment Software Rating Board (ESRB) ratings when making these types of decisions. The ESRB has given Fortnite a T (Teenagers) rating with a Content Descriptor for Violence and Interactive Elements.
