How to Set up Roblox Two Step Verification

Introduction

As the popularity of Roblox grows, so does the desire on the part of hackers to break into Roblox accounts. Someone who breaks into your Roblox account, or the account of younger family members who use the platform, can steal your account, adjust your account settings, see sensitive information, steal items and Robux, and more. The best way to prevent a Roblox account from being hacked is to turn on two step verification on the account. Thankfully, enabling 2SV on your Roblox account is fairly easy, and Roblox gives you a few different ways to do that.
