Censorship[]

Roblox is banned in Jordan due to offensive language and violence.

Roblox (along with many other websites) was banned in the United Arab Emirates in May 2018 in the order of Dr. Hamad Saif Al Shamsi, the Attorney General of the United Arab Emirates. This is due to players being able to display or wear inappropriate (i.e. suggestive) avatars or communicate with obscenity. However in 2021, the ban was lifted. Gulf News reached out to UAE's Telecom and Regulatory Authority (TRA), and a spokesperson for the authority confirmed that the platform is not banned in the UAE as of now. Based on our check, Roblox is available to download through iOS App Store and Android Play Store on UAE devices.

Doodle World[]

The roulette is disabled in South Korea, Belgium, and The Netherlands because of gambling laws in those countries. Trying to tap on this mechanic in those countries will pop up a message "Your country does not allow you to use this feature," which makes it impossible to get doodles that are currently only obtained through roulette unless trade.

Other experiences[]

Experiences in which the user can spend Robux for random in-game items, thus making them like lootboxes, are unavailable to Roblox users in Belgium and the Netherlands due to gambling laws in those countries.

Experiences with an age rating of 17+ are unavailable to residents of South Korea, Saudi Arabia, and Turkey.[1]
