What Is Roblox?

Roblox is an online platform game that was first released for PC back in 2006, iOS in 2012, Android in 2014, and Xbox One in 2015. The game allows players to create almost whatever they desire, or if you don’t want to create your own games, you can play other user-created content. Roblox first found success in 2010 and has been reignited due to the on-going COVID-19 pandemic which meant millions of people around the world have been forced to stay at home.

The popular game is free-to-play but does have in-game purchases which are available through the virtual currency known as “Robux”. According to the Roblox wikipedia, as of August 2020, Roblox had over 164 million monthly active users. Many of the games users are aged under 16 in the United States.

Who Is John Doe?

If you’re curious as to who John Doe actually is, here’s the answer.

When the game was first launched back in 2006, the developers created an account under the name of John Doe. The purpose of this account was so that they could interact with players on the game, due to the low amount of players at the time they felt that it was important there was someone the players could interact with. This is the origin of John Doe, and the account was slowly phased out as the game became more and more popular as the developers felt there was a big enough player base that John Doe was no longer necessary.

Unfortunately, in 2017, certain YouTubers such as Kazok started a rumour claiming John Doe would be hacking Roblox accounts. Now as it’s the four year anniversary of the rumour, TikTok videos have begun circulating claiming that March 18, 2021 will see the return of John Doe and that he will in fact hack your Roblox account.

Will Roblox Accounts Be Hacked On March 18?

So, is your Roblox account at risk of being hacked today? (March 18) The answer is simple, no.
