Why do I need to verify who the account owner is?

One of the main uses of GamerSafer is to make sure that staff accounts have not been stolen before granting them permissions which can cause damage to the server or community.

How many times have you punished a player for griefing or hacking, only to immediately receive a ban appeal claiming that it was a younger brother or sister who acted inappropriately? When players authenticate with GamerSafer, you know with certainty that the account owner was the one who logged in, and the ban appeal can be dismissed.

In competitive events this secure identity verification is even more useful, as you can prevent accounts that were stolen or smurfs from logging in and causing the integrity of the event to go down.

What is Liveness Detection?

When players and staff authenticate with the GamerSafer app, they are asked to take a selfie to verify their identity before access and permissions are granted on your server. This feature checks if the player is in motion in a live environment to prevent fake logins.

Auto-linking known player alts:

Players are encouraged to link all of their Minecraft accounts to their GamerSafer profile. When they log in with any account, our system analyses their selfie with liveness detection so that your server knows which alt accounts are linked together. Any action or punishment you place on one of those accounts will immediately be placed automatically on all of them.

Say “Goodbye!” to ban evaders using alts!

What are Repeaters?

Repeaters are our way of allowing servers to increase their monthly authentication limits temporarily and on-demand so that you can keep your GamerSafer service active without breaking the bank. You’ll keep your access to our verified player accounts, global ban and block lists, permission management, and other features even if you go over your included monthly authentication limit.

How does age validation work?

Our proprietary technology analyses the selfie scan to ensure that the player’s stated age matches what we see.

Whether you run a server for children and want to keep adults away, or have a network just for adults and don’t want minors to disrupt the flow of games, you can rely on our age validation systems to make sure that only the demographics you want on your server are able to join.

Why do you need parental consent for underage players?

Many Minecraft players are young. Collecting their personal data, even an IP Address, requires your compliance the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) and other government regulations. This is why many companies, including Mojang, ask for parental consent before granting certain features to their child users.

GamerSafer’s parental consent flow allows parents to grant permission for their children to join a Minecraft server, which can save you headaches when trying to comply with privacy regulations, and also help you if parents ask for information about how your server will use their child’s behavior and data.

How is GamerSafer Compliant with Privacy and Security Regulations?

The opt-in and consent-based approach is the foundation of GamerSafer’s compliance with data privacy regulations. GamerSafer does not sell, rent, or lease players’ personal data at any moment. GamerSafer uses biometrics for verification purposes only and does not share user biometric info. GamerSafer also implements data minimization best practices and we only send data to servers that they need in order to properly give access and permissions to each player that logs in.

Personal Identifiable Information (PII) is not shared with other games or servers, and unless necessary is not even stored in our own systems, to ensure that each player can keep their private data private.

Minecraft Servers are not protected against GDPR or COPPA complaints simply because Microsoft and Mojang are. Each server should take their own measures to protect themselves against security risks.

GamerSafer remains in full compliance with GDPR, COPPA, LGPD, and other developing privacy and security regulations from governments around the world.

What are Player Preferences?

Players can click on their profile in the GamerSafer app to answer a few questions about what type of gameplay they enjoy and expect on the servers that they join. We send this information to servers so that they can understand their community and make better decisions in the future, as well as grant certain permissions to their players based on those preferences or group them with others who have similar preferences.

For example, players that say they don’t like swearing might automatically have a chat filter applied to remove swearing from their view.

What behaviors count as misconduct?

GamerSafer’s mission is to reduce contact, conduct, content, and contract risks across the Minecraft ecosystem to create a safer and more enjoyable experience for all players. Studies show that this improves player retention rates and decreases the amount of time server staff spend reacting to disruptive behaviors.

Your server can ban, punish, and report players for any of several dozen behavior categories that have been identified through years of experience and research into what constitutes disruptive and toxic behaviors in the gaming industry.

What is Pro-Social Behavior and why is it relevant?

It is always a good idea to let players know when they are acting in a way that supports your community.

This feature allows reporting players when they are helpful, show leadership, play well with a team, or exhibit other pro-social behaviors that contribute to the health of your server community. This can encourage them to continue doing it, or encourage other players to follow their lead.

What kind of player can I auto-block from joining my server?

Depending on the type of community that you run and the rules you have in place, you may use this feature to automatically prevent known hackers, griefers, bots, and more from joining your server.

There are dozens of categories that you can choose from, and players that have been banned by Trusted Servers for any categories that are important to you can also have their permissions restricted or network access entirely blocked.


Policies and systems are in place to prevent manipulation of these Trusted Server ban and report lists to make sure the players you want in your community are able to join. And you can fine-tune these restrictions based on your server’s unique needs.

What is a global player ban/report history?

Players have only one GamerSafer profile when they join Minecraft networks and their account history and preferences follow them from place to place. When they are reported or banned by GamerSafer-chosen Trusted Servers for any of the several dozen categories we track in our system, you can automatically choose to restrict their permissions or access on your own server network before they have a chance to harm your community in the same way.


Policies and systems are in place to prevent manipulation of these Trusted Server ban and report lists to make sure the players you want in your community are able to join. And you can fine-tune these restrictions based on your server’s unique needs.

What does “Context-Trusted” mean?

Servers that have proven they have a strong commitment to player safety and enforcing industry-standard guidelines in their communities are invited to join the GamerSafer Trusted Servers Program.

Iron Tier and above customers are able to block and restrict permissions for players the moment they join a server based on the reports and bans sent by those Trusted Servers.

Iron Tier servers will, of course, also have access to their own full ban and report histories for all of their players.

What is the Global Minecraft History?

While Iron Tier customers are only able to access the ban and report histories for players from their own server or from servers in the GamerSafer Trusted Servers Program, Gold Tier customers can choose to enable and utilize all bans and reports from all other Minecraft servers that use GamerSafer.

GamerSafer cannot verify the contextual authenticity of all reports and bans from all servers outside of those in the Trusted Servers Program, but for certain categories Gold Tier customers may choose to use the global histories to add an extra layer of protection.

What does “Cross-Platform” mean?

Diamond Tier customers have the highest level of player report and ban histories of all Minecraft service tiers. They can choose to utilize the report history from GamerSafer Trusted Servers, the player histories from the entire GamerSafer Minecraft network, or even hook into the player report and ban histories from other games that provide that data.

This grants the highest level of protection so that players who are known for misconduct in specific categories in games outside of Minecraft are able to be restricted on your server, even if they have never been on another Minecraft server before.

What is the GS-Auth Plugin for?

Our development team includes influential lead developers in the Minecraft Java Edition plugin community. Together we’ve built a plugin for Paper Servers and Velocity Networks that is easy to use and reliably customizable for each unique server’s needs.

All GamerSafer Minecraft customers automatically get the GS-Auth plugin to activate their API Key and access the core GamerSafer features that they’ll need to put the system in action.
