About The Guide

What Parents Need to Know About League of Legends

Published 21st October 2020

A free online safety guide on popular game League of Legends.

League of Legends, commonly referred to as "LOL", is one of the most popular video games in the world, with millions of monthly players. It is available on Android, macOS and Windows, and Apple recently announced during its iPhone 12 launch event that it will soon be coming to iOS too. LOL is an esports game in which two teams of five face-off in order to destroy the other's base. In the UK and Europe, PEGI rates League of Legends as PEGI 12. However, in order to play the game, the user has to accept the Terms of Use, which state that the proper age to play is 13+.

In the guide, you'll find tips on a number of potential risks such as how to monitor gameplay, how to disable in-game spending and how to spot the signs of gaming addiction.
