What is Roblox?

Roblox is a free multiplayer online gaming platform that allows people to play games created by both developers and other users. It was founded in 2004 and officially launched in 2007 by co-founders David Baszucki and Eric Cassel. It can run on Windows PC, macOS OS, IOS, Android, and Amazon devices. Roblox games can be created by any user, usually with a basic knowledge of Visual Basic programming language.

What is Private Chat in Roblox?

It is a feature in Roblox that lets players hold one-on-one text communications. Along with group chat for both friends and server members, private chat is the main type of direct messaging available on Roblox. To engage in a private chat, a user replaces the name of their intended recipient by typing the complete /whisper [recipient’s username] command into an empty chat bar. This tells the system that the message is not meant for the entire server, but just the individual with that username.

How to Start a Private Chat in Roblox?

You start a private chat in Roblox by opening the chat window, clicking on a player’s name in the user list, and then clicking on the (More) header that appears on the right side. This opens a user card that has a chat start button on Windows, or the player’s profile which has chat as its last tab on mobile profiles. Neither the chat window nor the user card allows for a private chat to be started with multiple people (the user card chat is more of a chat summary), and you can’t join a private chat in a party you don’t already have lined up unless you are in a Team Create session.

You can quickly start a private chat with people in your party who aren’t friends by pressing /e [player name] in the chat window, which thumbs up requests another user to chat with just you. You can then go to their profile and press the chat button, or on Windows, see this chat request pop up which you can click to respond to. Parties should all be in the same server to access this functionality.

Private chat is always one-to-one, but can occur in 1-on-1 Messaging which can be initiated from chat, friend list, or direct message, or in Group Messaging which turns private chat into a three-way group chat, and can be done from the chat window (click new chat and add all group members) or inside a group’s page.

Step 1: Open the Roblox Game

Open the Roblox Game. Users can only chat with friends in-game. So if you open Roblox Studio or Roblox Player without opening or entering a game, you won’t be able to private chat with any player. The Roblox webpage states that we will be able to use chat outside the game in future versions. But as of the writing of this article, only an in-game chat feature is available.

Step 2: Go to the Chat Box

After opening a conversation, Roblox users can start talking in the Chat box which is located in the upper-left corner of the screen. In Laptop View, you see “Roblox” at the top left of the screen. The chat icon is the second from the right.

In Mobile View, chat appears as a comment icon on the right of the playing interface. Select this to open or close the chat interface. You can then tap on conversations or enter new messages. The chat box is only one of many chat features available to the user. Chat is available in game, through groups and followers, and Roblox has a help forum with chat. Most chatboxes are found to the right of the game screen.

Step 3: Click on the ‘Private Chat’ Button

Click on the ‘Private Chat’ button in the chat window to private chat in Roblox. Once the chat window is open, near the bottom there are two people and a lock icon. This is the ‘Chat Mode Selection’ button according to Roblox.

Click on this and a small menu pops up showing your current ‘Chat Mode’ color, ‘Chat Notifications’ status, and the option to adjust . Click on the ‘Private Chat’ button to open a chat thread to a friend you talk to often.

To find the Roblox user you want to speak with in private chat, select their name either to go to the ‘Chat’ button on their profile page, or you can click the chat button in the sidebar to the left. You can manually add individuals to the private chat only if they are already one of your friends on Roblox.

Step 4: Select the Player You Want to Chat With

Expand this by pressing the subsequent “Click here to read more” highlight. A chat bar will be displayed on the right side of the interface to allow you to chat privately in Roblox after enabling chatting with friends. This chat bar will list all of your accessible friends, and you simply need to select whom you would like to chat with. One additional method to make conversation is when you and the Roblox friend you want to talk with are in the same Roblox game. You should click on the left panel that exhibits the roster of players in that game, Move over to the list of players and click on the chat button near the name of the friend you wish to send a private text to. A chat window will open if the chosen user has not opted out of enabling chat services just for friends (or turning them off fully). The chosen individual can be contacted by clicking and typing in the text box.

How to Send a Private Message in Roblox?

You send a private message in Roblox by clicking your chat window, selecting the user you wish to chat with from the Message sidebar, then typing in the message field, and hitting ENTER. You then click on the group icon to bring up the People screen, select the Followers tab, and block all users not on your friends list. Any user on your friends list you can pipe into a private chat.

Step 1: Open the Chat Box

There are five ways to open the chat box in Roblox to start a text-based conversation in private or group chat:

  1. Pressing the / or t key
  2. Clicking on the tab icon
  3. Clicking on the chat tab icon
  4. Using the toolbar at the top-left of the screen available for the desktop and mobile chat window
  5. Clicking on the minimized chat icon at the bottom of the screen which pops up the chat interface

The main and inner chat box views are almost identical, as both show the same chat messages. The main difference is that messages sent to groups you are in and users you are following are located in the inner chat box. This is how the chat interface looks in a one-on-one interaction in a game chat-type window (and what most people mean when they refer to the chat box).

Step 2: Type in the Message

After clicking on the chat message box, the second step is to type in the message you want to share with your Roblox friend. By default, the chat is in public mode, but the moment you click on the private message icon, your chat becomes private and will only display in the recipient’s inbox.

At the moment as far as we know, there is no known way to encrypt those private messages end-to-end according to Chris Hazelton, Director, Security Solutions at Lookout, who has written on the security of the product specifically. In public chat messages, type numbers and a list of users you interact with frequently will display, thus making public chatting much easier. However private messaging does not have this shortcut enabled.

Step 3: Click on the ‘Send’ Button

After you have selected your recipient and typed your message, submit it by pressing the Enter key. Type Enter on the keyboard or click Enter button on the chat window in Roblox. You can even press the up arrow key to resend the same message after you type it initially. Hit Up Arrorw on the keyboard to resend or click the Send button in the chat window of Roblox.

How to Accept or Decline a Private Chat Request in Roblox?

To accept or decline a private chat request in Roblox, open the chat panel and click on the notification to talk with this person privately. If the chat request is genuine and you would like to accept the friend request, then simply use the keyboard and click the Alt + / key to switch the conversation to private. You can also accept by enabling the Who can chat with me in game? option under the Privacy settings in your account webpage. And from there, add the username you want to private chat with under the Users tab as a follower. Go back to the game and touch on the notification icon again and you’ll be able to chat with that person. And if you don’t know the person, then don’t go to their follow request or accept it. In cases where this doesn’t work the follow request requester is probably a friend of a friend and asked to be connected to you through a mutual connection’s friend list. If you’re still unsure, ask mutual friends if they know this person and can verify if they know them.

Step 1: Open the Chat Box

After opening Roblox, the chat box on Windows and macOS can be viewed by pressing the forward-slash key on the keyboard (/) which will place a cursor in the dialog box at the bottom left of the screen and bring up the chat log. This will create a dialog that is just like what used to appear automatically before the chat system changes in 2014. Now when a member starts chatting, the current chat system will merge with the dialogue making it impossible to separate the talking members.

After the chat box is opened, users will select the Private message tab in the center of the chat box, which will bring up the names of online friends so that private chats can then be opened with any of them. On iOS and Android smartphones, the chat box can be brought up by clicking the chat icon in the upper right corner.

Step 2: Click on the ‘Requests’ Tab

To view all friend requests received OR all users followed by Brand accounts on Roblox, click on the Requests tab. At the top-left corner of the chat window, there are tabs with the user’s friends and people being followed by Brand Account in them. Now, the user’s friends or the people being followed by Brand Account will appear.

Step 3: Accept or Decline the Request

If you’re not already friends on Roblox, a request to add someone to your friends list will show up. You must either accept or decline this request to begin chatting with them.

Until it is answered, they will be listed as pending friends. Once the request is accepted (or they are already on your friends list), you can simply select their name from the friends list and click the chat button. A chat log will then open in the bottom right-hand corner of the screen, to the right of the friends list, and you will be able to chat with them.

How to Leave a Private Chat in Roblox?

To leave a private chat in Roblox, either close the chat will the M key when you have returned all chat windows to global chat, or click on another user’s Whisper chat button so you can send them a private chat back and forth without going through the settings. The F9 toggle shortcut can be used if you are in a computer game that entirely removes the chat desire. Stay mindful of moving other chats back to global so you do not accidentally chat with someone in private.

Step 1: Open the Chat Box

There are two ways to open the chat box in Roblox to begin the private one-on-one chat process. Both ways utilize the chat box at the top of the screen. The first is to click the “/” (forward slash) key to go into type mode and then expand the chat box fully by clicking the chats icon in the upper left. This allows you to see all chats you may be included in. The second way is to click into the chat box and expand the box fully by clicking an existing chat or an empty area.

Step 2: Click on the ‘Leave’ Button

After completing a private chat in Roblox, you have two options to stop private chat if you want to return back to public chat mode. OxSura’s video on YouTube explains the features for close and reopen the chat tab, but the steps are as follows. The first option is to click on the ‘Leave’ button on the upper left of the chat window. The second option is to go into your private chat list through the chat box and either click ‘suspend’, or just type a message to bring the chat tab back up. OxSura recommends the second option for quick chats, while clicking ‘Leave’ can be handy at the end of a chat when you close down the tab and do not need it open anymore.

What are the Rules for Private Chat in Roblox?

The rules for private chat in Roblox are that players can private chat on Roblox, but all chat will be filtered through chat servers with patterns and structures that mark them as inappropriate for a community standard. If messages contain chat that is filtered by Roblox, messages will show only asterisks and CEASE! automatically.

If caught private chatting by a game’s developer or reported, players may be warned, suspended, or banned based on Roblox Terms of Service guidelines.

Be Respectful

When engaging in private chat in Roblox, it is very important to show respect for the other party in the communication. Acting in a polite and tolerant manner will help to keep the conversation productive and ensure you avoid any possible negative repercussions of breaking chat guidelines. To prevent any escalation, it is important to ensure you are calm and collected. If the user continues to act in an unfair manner, provide evidence of their actions and send the conversation to customer service.

Do Not Share Personal Information

  • Do not share your real name.
  • Do not share your address or neighborhood.
  • Do not share your school, college, or workplace.
  • Do not share your phone number or email address.
  • Arguably, sharing this information during private chat with someone you censor extremely-is a less dangerous activity than letting kids play most types of sports or letting them take the bus to school. The internet will never be perfectly safe, but safety can be enhanced greatly by informing users of the types of information that are dangerous to share.

Do Not Use Inappropriate Language

Inappropriate language (profanity, offensive insinuations, hate speech, harassing language) has a broad interpretation within the scope of coworker and friends’ chat in Roblox.

The creators recommend users report and block other players who are using inappropriate language. Memberships in Roblox are terminated for breaking the Community Rules and serious conversation. In the case of the Roblox game Work at a Pizza Place (one of the most popular), users are reminded with a chuckle that the game is rated for people aged 7+.

Most of the Roblox community is very conscious of this and keeps it Family Friendly, talking as they would with their boss or teachers covering topics such as music, workloads, vacations, and much less frequently policy violations, disruptive behavior, or opinions about new projects and systems. Just use your better judgment whether your coworkers are around.

Do Not Spam

Please make sure to follow all guidelines and do not spam when you see the Spamming Policy notice notification in the friends tab or the emergent contacts tab appears. Spamming is the repeated or frequent posting of similar messages which are generally inappropriate such as removing tags. Believe it or not, multiple reports of spamming have been observed especially during the beginning of the school year that follows the release of Roblox items which are popular for trading. If the Spamming Policy notice is activated during chat sessions, it may have an effect on a user’s ability to send messages. To regain (and maximize) chatting privileges in Roblox, players should wait for their spamming marks to evaporate.

Do Not Scam or Cheat

Roblox’s Community Rules prohibit scamming or cheating of any sort, including through private chatting. Performance-enhancing screen overlays or voice morphing, Roblox game theft frameworks, illegal trading of games and items, and fake giveaway scams are some common forms of cheating within Roblox that young users have been known to engage in using the privacy and secrecy of the private chat function.

Roblox itself says, “We need to ensure that Roblox remains an enjoyable and safe experience for everyone” and emphasizes for users to “Get to know real developers and members of our community”. This implies discouragement of private chat, particularly where such chats are to engage in cheating or scam activity. Scamming or cheating behavior, especially fraudulent Roblox phishing (such as asking for passwords or other personal information), should be reported and violators disciplined.

Roblox or another user can be reported through the Report Abuse system or a Rlac Help Request.
