Can You Delete A Place In Roblox?
Last Updated: February 22, 2021
Do you want to remove a place from your Roblox account and start over with a new one? Or do you want to clean up your list of games? Is it possible to delete a place from the platform? We’ll answer all of these questions in our guide below.
While Roblox allows its users to design and develop as many games as they want, it doesn’t allow you to delete any of the games you created. As such, you can’t completely remove any of your places from the platform.
However, you can choose to make your games private and hide them from other users. When you do so, no other player can view and access your place unless it’s a group game.
Alternatively, you can archive your games, shut down all their servers, or changes their privacy settings to private. Archiving also removes the game from your list of creations on your Studio and the Roblox website.
If you want to hide your games from other users, we’re here to help you. We’ll teach you how to archive or make them private with our guide below.
How to make your places in Roblox private
Although you can’t delete your places in Roblox, you hide them from other players. By making your games private, only you can access and play with them.
- Open Roblox Studio on your computer and sign-in to your account.
- Head to “My Games” and look for the game you want to make private.
- Hover on the one you want to edit, click the ellipsis, and select Make private.
Once you make a place private, Roblox shuts down all its servers as well. In turn, no other players can access, view, and play your game.
Alternatively, you can log in to the Roblox website and make your place private from your Creations tab. Here’s a step-by-step guide to help you.
- Using your favorite browser, visit Roblox and sign-in to your account.
- At the top of the home page, click Create.
- Head to the My Creations tab and select Games.
- Look for the place you want to make private and click on the grey or green icon under the title to switch its privacy settings.
- Under the Privacy options, select Private and click Save to apply the changes.
A green icon means that the game is public, and any user can play or view the place. On the other hand, a grey icon prevents other players from accessing the game, unless it’s a group game to which the developers can access any time.
How to archive your games in Roblox
Besides making your games private, you can archive them instead and hide them from the Roblox Studio. By archiving a game, you can keep your working space clean by hiding it from others or your list of active games.
- Open your Roblox Studio, sign-in to your account, and head to the “My Games” tab.
- Hover on one of your games and click the ellipsis (three-dot icon) to access its options.
- At the bottom of the context menu, click Archive.
When you archive a game, Roblox automatically shuts down all of its servers. It also changes its visibility to private so that no other player can access it.
If you’re having trouble archiving a place in Roblox, make sure to close all your games and try these steps above again. Once you archive a game, it will disappear from the game list on the Studio and the Games section on your “My Creations” tab on the website.
To find your archived games, open your Roblox Studio and head to your Archive tab. If you want to recover a game, hover on it, click on the ellipsis, and select Restore.
Overwrite your Roblox places
Instead of archiving or making your games private, you can edit and overwrite them if you want. By reusing your places, you don’t have to add a new place to your list when you want to create a new game.
After overwriting your old game, all you have to do is rename it, change its icon, and update its description. Once you finish changing the game’s settings and information, you can go ahead and share it with your friends and other players.
To wrap it all up
Although you can’t completely delete a game or a place on Roblox, you can choose to make them private. On the other hand, you can also archive them to hide them from your list of active games.
By archiving a game or making it private, no other player can view or play it on Roblox. Using both of these options automatically shuts down all the servers and running games.
