What tools do I have to safely surf Habbo?

On Habbo you’re in control. To help you make your stay in the Hotel a safe and enjoyable one, we’ve created a number of tools for you to take control of each and every situation.  Here’s how they work:

-Ignore button

If another user is bothering you, or you simply do not want to listen to what somebody says, you can silence this person by using the Ignore button. To do this, click on the avatar of the person you want to silence. The Ignore button will appear and once you click on it, the speech from the user in question automatically becomes invisible.

-Room moderation tools

You’re in control of your own rooms. You get to decide what happens in your rooms and who can visit them. This allows you to play an active part in the general Habbo moderation and to contribute to a safer, enjoyable and responsible community. You have the following tools at your disposal:

*Kick

This tool removes a user from a room. The user may return to the room, if it is not full or locked.

*Mute

This tool mutes a user in the room. You can choose to mute a user for 2 , 5 or 10 mins.

*Mute room

This tool works in the same way as Mute, but here all Habbos in a room will be muted.

*Ban

This tool lets you ban a Habbo from your room for a period of time. You can choose between 1 hour, 1 day and permanent (group members can only be banned for one hour or one day).

*Remove Ban

This tool serves to remove a ban previously imposed. If you think you may have been a little harsh and now there’s no one left in your room, this tool will soon sort it out.  

You can let your friends have moderation rights to keep an eye on your rooms, when you’re not around.  For more information about room moderation tools, please click here.

  

-Control Access to rooms

You decide who gets to visit your room by choosing from the following options:

Open – Any user may enter the room

Password – The room is locked with a password. Only users who have the password can enter.

Doorbell – Users will need to ring the doorbell and your child decides who gets to come in.

Invisible -  Users without room rights cannot see the room in the navigator.

You can manage room access settings by clicking Room settings, a control panel that appears in the room to the right of the screen.

 

 - Room Filter

This filter serves as an addition to the chat filter, also known as bobba filter.

You may consider some words that are generally allowed in the hotel as inappropriate or you simply don't want these words said in your own rooms.

With the room filter you can control what words or phrases you allow others to say in their rooms. You can set and edit the room filter differently in each of you rooms.

 

- Forum moderation

Group owners can read, publish and open new discussion threads. They can also select Group member only or Administrator only settings.

Group owners can hide, modify or restore posts or entire threads.

 

-Profile privacy settings

Though Habbos stay anonymous, you can manage your profile settings in Account settings for even more control over your privacy:

Online status - If you don’t want to be seen while connected to the hotel, click Nobody.

Follow me Settings – Only your friends are able to follow you from one room to the next. Nevertheless if you want a quiet moment to yourself, you can click Nobody in these settings. This way nobody will know where you are.

 

-Safety lock

On Habbo you have the option to protect your account from unwanted access. If you think your account has been compromised, we’ll block it. All main features such as trading furni will be disabled until the account has been unblocked. You can activate the safety lock in Account settings.

- Link a mobile phone number to a Habbo account

This tool serves purely as a means of protection. If you cannot access your account because it was hacked or you cannot remember your account password, you can restore access to your account using your mobile phone. To take advantage of this service you need to verify your mobile phone number. Please note that no one is obligated to verify their number if you would rather not do so. This service is completely optional. 

For more information on mobile phone verification, please see here.
