If you’re trying out a new game mode that you think is great, but your friends don’t think so, that’s fine. By appearing offline, you won’t have to put up with any taunts you’ll be facing if they find that you’re playing that game mode.

2. You want to play alone

Hey, gaming can be done both with and without friends. While it is more enjoyable with friends, sometimes everyone needs some alone time. By appearing offline, you won’t have to put up with the constant invites sent by your friends, which can be quite irritating.

1. Using the “Custom” Communication setting

To counter the Offline status’ 12-hour limit, the Custom status can be used. By activating the Custom status and toggling all the other settings to Non one can ensure that nobody can contact you in Roblox, until you turn this off manually.

Modify the settings until it says “No one”

2. Appearing “Invisible” on Discord

Discord is the most popular chatting app for gamers. Besides chatting, Discord allows people to connect to a voice channel where they can converse freely. In Roblox, this comes in very handy. Appearing offline on Discord can help mask your activities, although your friends will be able to see that you’re online.

Enabling “Invisible” status on Discord won’t allow your friends to see you online

3. Turning on offline mode on Xbox/PlayStation through profile status

Another way to mask your activities on Roblox is to turn on the offline mode through the console’s own account status. Setting your Microsoft account or your PlayStation to offline to mask your activities can help hide your gameplay from friends, although any friends in-game will still see you.
