Junior accounts are for players 12 years of age and younger. If our moderation and evidence systems detect underage activity on a non-junior account it will be converted to a junior account. You have two weeks to complete your appeal of a junior account conversion before it becomes permanent. To appeal and age verify your account, please see the bottom of this page for more information. You must login to the now junior account or associated parent account to age verify.
Junior accounts are available for the following platforms:
- PlayStation (PS4, PS4 Pro, PS5, PSVR)
- Xbox (Xbox One, Xbox One S/X, Xbox Series S/X)
- PC Standalone Launcher
- Steam (SteamVR Included)
- Pico (Pico Neo3 Link, Pico 4)
Junior accounts are not available on the following platforms:
- Meta Quest (Quest 1, Quest 2, Quest Pro)
- Oculus PC Launcher
Junior accounts are not available to use on Meta devices. Starting November 14th 2022, Meta is requiring Rec Room, and apps like it, to block users under 13 years of age or the offending app may be removed from their digital stores. Junior accounts are intended for children under the age of 13 and therefore are not supported on Meta devices and platforms.
If you are the parent of a child 12 years of age or younger who enjoys Rec Room, please create an account for your child by entering their correct birth date at account creation. To create a new account, start up Rec Room and then choose the 'create new account' button. You will then need to input a parent or guardian's email for the junior account. If you are a parent or guardian with your own Rec Room account, you can reuse the email you registered on your account for your child.
If your child has already created an account and you would like us to switch it over to a junior account, please contact us. If we detect underage activity on non-junior accounts, all accounts at that location may face a ban, up to a permanent ban.
You can have junior and non-junior accounts on the same computer! Junior accounts will show a red JR icon on their account preview image when you start up Rec Room and see a list of your available accounts. You can also tell if you are on a junior account in Rec Room by going to your watch menu > Settings > Audio > and checking to see if your microphone is disabled with a message about the account being a junior.
Players on junior accounts are not able to:
- Transmit or hear voice audio
- Send or receive in game text messages
- Choose a custom display name and username (they can log in to their account and choose a new generated display name)
- Damage teammates in quests
- Create custom rooms and inventions
- Attend events or join clubs
- Play charades (juniors can't see or share drawings or maker pen creations with other players)
Non-junior players can opt in to matchmaking that attempts to avoid rooms / activities where junior players are present. You can find this option in your watch menu > settings > experience. This toggleable option is called "Don't matchmake me with Junior Players".
If your account is mistakenly converted to a junior account but the account user is over the age of 12, you can age verify the account. To age verify, please log into the account you would like to age verify. Once you log in, please head to your profile page > settings > account settings > verify age.
Once at this page, please click "Get Code" to obtain your age verification action code. You can then use this code over at http://rec.net/age to verify your account.
If you need assistance with age verifying your account, please contact our support team by submitting a ticket with us.
