Clash of Clans is a strategic action video game set in a fantasy world where the player is the chief of their own village. Clans of up to 50 players can merge to work together while sharing a group chat. Clash of Clans was designed with teens in mind, but potential hazards include inappropriate language and conversations in chat rooms.

Parental Controls

Parental controls will need to be set on each device kids might use to play the game. Supercell, the company that owns Clash of Clans, works hard to maintain a safe and secure environment for players. The game doesn't have a private chat facility, and it displays regular warnings against sharing personal information.

If there are any issues, Clash of Clans contains prominent tools for players to report any offensive, insulting, or inappropriate behavior. It’s also possible for users to mute chats from any player whose messages they do not want to see. If users prefer to report any concerns by email, messages can be sent to parents@supercell.com.

How to filter chats for profanity

  • Tap on the gear icon in the lower right-hand corner.
