Struggling to find your unique player ID, or wondering what it’s for? We’ve got you covered! Continue reading below to find out what a player ID is and how you can find yours, or the IDs of any of your friends.
What is a player ID?
A player ID serves as a form of identification that’s specific to your account and its information—because no one else can have the same player ID as you, it’s a great way to differentiate yourself from other players. There are also item IDs, group IDs, and experience IDs that all serve a similar purpose. These IDs are basically a numerical username that exist in the background of your account.
How do I find my player ID?
On the Roblox website, head to your profile. Do this by clicking on the three lines in the top left hand corner, and then selecting the icon of your Roblox character. From your profile, locate the address bar above the actual website’s window—it should say something similar to https://www.roblox.com/users/123456789/profile.
The nine digit number that’s inserted before /profile is your unique player ID.
