The tool is not associated with Roblox, so it’s considered a third-party tool.

To download it, you need to go to the tool’s Github page and download the latest release.

According to the antivirus, the tool is considered a “Game Hack”.

During the Roblox Developers Conference in 2019, the Vice President of Engineering, Adam Miller, confirmed that the usage of the FPS Unlocker is not punishable on Roblox.
