Players may become verified by verifying their current email address with Roblox. This can be accomplished by accessing one's "Account" page. Some features require the player to be verified in order for the feature to work; this includes commenting and rating games. Roblox requests that players be verified in order to more easily re-access an account after being the victim of "Password guessing" and to prevent malicious use of some features.
In the past, Roblox has encouraged players to verify their account with rewards. Currently (starting February 8, 2013), players will receive the Verified, Bonafide, Plaidafied hat for verifying their account. Previously, players would get the Verified Sign for verifying their account. Additionally, Roblox occasionally releases gifts to verified players.
If a player verifies his/her email, he/she can gain more abilities on the website, such as (but not limited to):
- Rate games they have played
- Leave comments on items (e.g. shirts, pants, T-shirts, models)
- Post on group walls
- Change their username
- Protect his/her account
- Adjust their "Security" settings
- Reset his/her password or username when he/she forgets to log in
