How do you set your age settings on ROBLOX if you accidentally set to under 13? I accidentally put 2008 instead of 1998 in the sign up section. Is there any way to change this, as in settings, age settings are greyed out.
I had this issue also, and I wasn't able to find a way to set it back to my original year.
I E-Mailed Roblox about this issue and I hoped to find a way to fix this, and they said due to some sort of law, you are not able to change your age and they also can't change your age.
Sorry if this couldn't help, if nothing works, you can create another account.
If your account is 13+, you can change your age at any time.
However, if your account is under 13, you can't change your age.
If you want to enjoy the features of the game without restrictions, it is best you create a new account.
According to the official Roblox website for parents,
Roblox is a member in the kidSAFE Seal Program, which has been approved by the Federal Trade Commission as an authorized safe harbor under the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA). We are committed to complying with COPPA to ensure the privacy of our users under the age of 13 and implementing reasonable measures to prevent them from sharing personal information via chat messages or in-game.
This means that they must "implement" "reasonable measures" such as preventing those under the age of 13 to change their age so they can access content that's not "appropriate" for their age.
The 'Children's Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA)' That Roblox must comply with can be found here:
As stated above, there is no way to change your age if your age is under 13. If you email Roblox, they will say that they are unable to change the age due to their commitment to COPPA law (Children's Online Privacy Protection Act). The best thing would be to create a new account or wait until Robox believes that you have "passed" the age of 13. For more information you can check out Roblox's Parent's Guide:
To change your age on Roblox you must:
- Open the Roblox home page.
- Go to the top right corner and click on "settings".
- A page called "My Settings" should open up.
- Scroll down until you see "Birthday".
- Enter in a new birthday.
- Click "Save".
Know that you have changed your birthday / age.
I would just make another account. To protect under-13 players, roblox has age restrictions. Now, if kids could change the age listed on their account, they could play all sorts of corrupting games. So, they aren't allowed to change it after it's set. Unfair? Probably, but such are the laws. However, parents probably would not let kids play roblox if it didn't have those restrictions. So perhaps they are okay.
