  • You can delete a Roblox account by simply emailing the company, but there are a few other ways to do it.
  • Roblox users should note that it is usually not possible to recover accounts after they've been deleted.

Roblox is an online gaming platform that people, especially kids, are playing significantly. It's a community where users can participate in games and activities other users have designed, create their own games, or just dress up their avatar, decorate their home, and socialize.

But some parents have grown wary or frustrated with Roblox - there have been complaints from parents that it is interfering with daily life. Some also worry that the social features leave their children vulnerable to online predators, or simply that they'll see something that is not appropriate at their age.

While Roblox has safety features that allow parents to limit what words and phrases they are allowed to see, some parents feel that this isn't enough, and parents may want to opt to delete their child's account.

How to delete a Roblox account

Users or parents who want to delete an account will be unable to find a simple delete button on the Roblox website, however. This is because there isn't one. If you want to delete a Roblox account, there are three ways to do it.

Email support

The first and easiest way to delete your Roblox account is to email its support staff at and request that it be deleted. To save time, you should also include your name, email, and address for ID verification, since they won't delete an account without being sure it's yours.


Call customer service

If you'd rather not have to wait on back-and-forth email responses, a phone call is a quicker way to delete your account all at once. Call 888-858-2569 to speak to a representative.

Remain inactive for a year

Roblox deletes idle accounts in order to free up space on its servers for new players. If you don't log in to your account for one year, it will be deleted for you.

You should note, before trying any of these methods, that once a Roblox account is deleted it is extremely unlikely that you'll be able to get it back. In rare cases where misunderstandings have occurred, people have been able to recover their information, but most of the time Roblox does not restore deleted accounts.
