As some of you might know, players that are under 16 and play from the European Union might need to get permission from a parent or guardian to continue playing League of Legends.
We just wanted to let you know that the system to get permission has been activated, so if you need to get approval, you can do it now!
**This process is as follows:** we’ll send your parent or guardian an email, they’ll confirm, and you’ll be back in action. Easy peasy!
**How can I tell if I'm affected or not? **
If your account is one of those requiring parental permission, you should have received in-client warnings about a week ago.
In any case, to check now if you are affected or not, just log in to your account.
If you need your parent or guardian approval, as soon as you log in you will be directed to a website to unlock your account.
If you are not impacted, you won’t see the notification and don’t need to take any further action
But please don’t panic, parental approval is not needed for all players in the EU under the age of 16. The age of eligibility required varies from country to country, so check this player [support article](https://support.riotgames.com/hc/en-us/articles/360001196228) to see what the requirements are for your location.
We'll update this post if there are any changes to the parental approval process!
