Inc. Names ROBLOX One of America’s Fastest-Growing Privately Held Companies in 2016

This week, ROBLOX proudly earned a spot on the 35th Annual Inc. 5000, a prestigious list celebrating the fastest-growing private companies in America. This is an extraordinary accomplishment that complements our ten years of business and acknowledges our mission to power the imagination of millions.

We are incredibly honored to join the ranks of companies such as Microsoft, GoPro, Square, Loot Crate, and many more popular brands that have been previously recognized. On average, the companies on this year’s list have grown nearly fivefold from 2012 to 2015, according to Inc. That’s a remarkable achievement that only few companies can ever attain. At ROBLOX specifically, our three-year growth revenue increase was 130 percent. We are ranked #37 by highest revenue in the Consumer Products & Services category.

Our growth is attributed to our dedicated team of employees and our talented and passionate community – for building the most amazing experiences on our platform and encouraging others to join in on a myriad of immersive adventures.

We are tremendously grateful for your support. It has been a thrilling journey over the past ten years, and we can’t wait to show you our continuing evolution over the next ten years. If you haven’t already, we invite you to read through our ten-year retrospective on our blog to revisit some of our most eventful moments leading up to 2016.

Thank you,

      ROBLOX

Security Update

We have observed that someone recently may have accessed one of our test sites without authorization.  This test site contained limited user information dating from 2012 and earlier.

We identified this unauthorized access promptly, began an investigation into the incident, and took steps to prevent any additional unauthorized access. As part of our response to this incident, we turned off the economy briefly to determine whether any accounts were being used without authorization. As an added layer of protection, we instituted a password reset process for certain accounts.

We are currently assessing and implementing additional security measures and plan to offer optional two-factor authority for our users soon. While we believe we have identified the full extent of this incident, our investigation is ongoing.  We will notify users of any additional steps we believe are appropriate as a result of our investigation.

We regret any inconvenience this may have caused and thank you for your loyalty and patience.
