From a safety point of view, the trò chơi has no private chat facility, but players can join & take part in Global và Clan group chats. That leaves open the possibility that children could be persuaded lớn chat away from the trò chơi by a fellow clan member.

Some parents have complained of bad or offensive language in group chats, that children can kết thúc up in a group with adults they don"t know & that there is no reporting facility within Clan chat. It is possible khổng lồ report offensive players in Global chat.

Supercell, the game makers, state that they display regular warnings against sharing personal information and have a "constantly updated blacklist of offensive words & phrases that can be quickly found and removed from all areas of the game."

Although the game clearly states it is for 13+ only, there was no age verification necessary lớn use the app. Even if there was, 14-year-olds could still play with adults in an unmoderated environment with no reporting facilities within Clan chat.

As with many games, even though it is possible to lớn set up safety measures & restrict tương tác within the game itself, serious players can join forums outside the game which may not be monitored or will be peer monitored & so reaction times to lớn bad behaviour may vary.

Verdict

Clash of Clans is seriously complicated for a beginner and seriously addictive once you begin lớn master it. It loses points for the lack of reporting function within Clan chat groups và the fact that children can join clans with adults they don"t know. If your child is going lớn use the multi-player option of the trò chơi unsupervised, be aware that they may come across adults & bad language - occasionally even both at the same time.
