What are Locks?


From left to right: Small Lock, Big Lock, Huge Lock and World Lock.

World Lock is the oftenly used and the main economic lock in the Growtopia. Locks are items which can restrict specific areas to specific people, determined by the owner of it. Locks come with a multitude of features allowing you to have control of locked areas. Locks can be used for private use or can be shared with others. There are several locks available to users through the Store. Each lock varies in price according to how much can be done with that specific lock. Trying to modify items on area locked displays a message that says: That area is owned by <owner of the lock>

The locks have multiple features that they all share. These are some of them: adding users to lock and setting to public. Adding users to lock allows a person you specify, by tapping/clicking them, to have access. Setting a lock to public allows anyone to build or destroy blocks within the locked limits.

Lock Decay

Any tile locks can be destroyed by anyone in 1 hit if all of the user with access is offline for 180 consecutive days. The decayed locks that are destroyed by other people will not return to their inventory.

World Locks never decay, but the world itself will be reset if all users with access are offline for 365 consecutive days.

  • Locks have Orange borders to differentiate Locks from other items.
  • The Orange borders are also useful to tell between a World Lock and the UPDATE STORE.
