The .ROBLOSECURITY cookie is a browser cookie used by the Roblox website to store user sessions in a web browser. Its content is a hash that is used by the website to determine what user account the user is logged in. This means that if a user can be tricked through social engineering or cookie loggers into revealing the content of this cookie; users who are aware of it can log into the account of the user by creating a cookie named “.ROBLOSECURITY” with the content revealed by the user. The hash used by the .ROBLOSECURITY cookie is permanent, but can be changed by logging off and logging back into the account.
Users who gave away their .ROBLOSECURITY must immediately click the "Sign out of all other sessions" button, located in their Roblox settings page. Doing this will reset their .ROBLOSECURITY cookie and make the old one unusable.
If anyone asks for your .ROBLOSECURITY cookie, don't give it to them!
