Parent’s Guide

Player safety is of utmost importance to Lifeboat Network. Old or young, we want those who choose to game with us to have a good time and be protected while doing it. Lifeboat does its best to go the extra mile to keep young players protected.

  1. Our chat filter is constantly being updated to not only block profanity, but also sensitive personal data.
  2. We work with a large staff of volunteer moderators to better filter what is happening on our servers.
  3. Our support staff is always available to help with any problems, from purchase issues to trouble connecting.

Our games are made for and offered for players age 13 and older. No personal data is stored when logging into the network, nor when making a purchase (these are handled by Apple, PayPal and Google).  If you need to contact Lifeboat Network, we’re always available and happy to help at parents@lbsg.net.

Pro Tips

We absolutely recommend limiting screen time for kids.  Get your kids playing outside and playing with other kids.  We strive to make our servers as creative, interactive, and positive as possible, but screens should not dominate your child’s life.   If your kid has become withdrawn, he or she might need some more IRL (In Real Life) activities.

We are your partner here and on your side, but be aware of what your kids are doing.  So look over their shoulders.  Especially with younger children, insist that they play in a common area of the house, and not off in their room.

Encourage play with IRL friends.  Great if your child is playing Minecraft, but it will be a much more memorable experience if they have some friends over to play Minecraft.

The chat filter will only do so much, as it is possible to say nasty things with harmless words.  So don’t assume that nothing harmful or bullying has gotten through.  Watch for changes in mood of your child.  If this happens sit down and have a talk with him or her.  Find out why.
