Fortnite gives parents more control over their children’s accounts

Epic Games has announced a new account that gives parents more control over how their kids spend on games.

Many games that are popular with children, such as Fortnite, Rocket League, and Fall Guys, contain microtransactions that allow players to purchase in-game goods.

Fall Guys is also included in the new account.

There have been horror stories of children accessing their parents’ accounts and spending large amounts of real money on these games.

Because children often don’t understand the value of money, some don’t realize that their actions have consequences for their parents.

Especially as money becomes more digital, they don’t understand that money spent in-game affects their wallets in the real world.

However, the new type of account can be linked to all these games and used to control the children’s spending.

The new Cabined accounts are designed for younger players aged 13+ and require parental permission to access.

Parents can then block a number of functions, e.g. B. Purchasing in-game content, which is subject to change at any time.

You can also block voice chatting with other players and downloading and playing games that are not pre-approved.

Features can be re-enabled at any time and do not require parents to set up a new account.

Accounts already set up by players aged 13-18 will automatically convert to Cabined Accounts, giving parents more control over their children’s gameplay.

Children with these accounts can still play these games, but other features will be blocked until parental consent is given.

Epic Games claims the change is designed to create a “tailored experience that’s safe and inclusive for younger players.”

However, children who create accounts claiming to be 18 or older will need to have a new account created with their correct age in order to add parental controls.

If you’re not sure what type of account your child is using, you can set up a new account for them.

This allows you to set up the account without having to constantly monitor your child’s activities.
