While undoubtedly a game world designed for interacting with others, there are still times when a Roblox appear offline option might come in handy. Maybe you feel like playing by yourself. Maybe you don't want friends to start bugging you while you take a break from the world.

Or maybe you found out how to see what game someone is playing on Roblox, and don't want others to do the same to you. And it isn't exclusive to Roblox. We know people would like to see an Epic Games appear offline function as well, for example.

Whatever your reason, you're entitled to seek some privacy. For a long time, it wasn't really possible to appear offline in Roblox. But recent changes mean that there is now an option to appear offline. We'll let you know how to find it.

How to appear offline on Roblox

For a long time, it wasn't possible to toggle an appear offline option on Roblox. Happily, that situation has changed, and appearing offline is easier than coming up with an appropriate simile for how easy it is.

Simply complete the following steps:

  • Log in to Roblox.
  • Go to More Options. You can either access the navigation menu, or click on the three dots in the top right corner of your screen.
  • Scroll down to My Feed.
  • When you see the Appear Offline option, make sure it's turned on.

Once you've done this, your status will show as offline to anyone on your friends list.

One thing worth noting is that apparently, this setting turns itself off after 12 hours. So if you go back online the following day, you may start showing as online once again. Simply repeat the process above if you wish to remain offline.

Can you play Roblox offline?

Of course, this may all feel like a lot of effort. You may be asking yourself if it's possible to play Roblox offline.

Unfortunately for you, if you want to play Roblox, you will need to maintain an active internet connection. Games are all provided via the Roblox servers, as opposed to being available to download and play offline.

After all, one of the main ideas behind Roblox is that it is an online multiplayer platform. So playing by yourself, offline, sort of undermines that premise.

As frustrating as this may be, at the very least you do now have the option of appearing offline, which is at least better than it was previously.
