Isn’t it true that most of the parents are quite disturbed because their children are always stuck on a smartphone? Many a time, we hear two parents talking about their children’s addiction to mobile phones.

One such online platform is Roblox. It is an online gaming platform that allows a user to play millions of 3D games online. It has around 178 million accounts, and an estimated 64 million players who use it every month. A user can play the game on a mobile phone, tablet, PC, Xbox One, and Amazon devices. Roblox also allows a user to send a message to an anonymous person. Most of the people don’t use their real identity and can pretend to be a friend to get information about you.
