Krafton is going to introduce a new parental control feature for Battlegrounds Mobile India (BGMI) under its ‘Game Responsibly’ campaign. Under the initiative, the company will add a new level of parental control, via time limitations and OTP confirmation.
This Campaign includes a virtual world warning message, OTP authentication for all players under 18 years of age, break reminders for better game-life balance, gameplay limits, and daily spend limits for players to prevent overspending.
BGMI ‘Game Responsibly’ campaign
With the campaign, the company is looking to limit the amount of time spent by underage users on playing the game to 3 hours. Now, the players under the age of 18, will require their parents’ consent to play. The parents will have to provide them with an OTP, which will work as a key to playing the game.
The company also introduces a daily spend limit of Rs 7,000. This feature will help put a stop to children’s reckless spending. It will alert parents before their children spend a lot of their hard-earned money.
Just before the game starts, BGMI shows a warning to make sure players are aware of the virtual world they are entering. Even the in-game audio has been tweaked to continuously remind players that the game exists in a virtual world and not real life.
Krafton gives the following statement:
“Every player, below the age of 18, needs to register a parent or a guardian before they start playing for the first time. It will send an OTP to the registered person’s number, post which the minor is allowed to play the game
Let’s have a look at the highlights of the Campaign
