'Houseparty' - a parents' guide

20th February 2019
Heard of the live streaming app 'Houseparty'?  The National Online Safety website has released a parental guide for this social networking app which has the potential to carry significant risks to children's safety.
 
National Online Safety say:
 
Houseparty is a live streaming app described as a face-to-face social network where people ‘drop in’ on each other to video chat, leave messages and hang out in groups. The platform also says #StrangerDanger gives you the opportunity for ‘party time’. In the UK alone, there is an estimated 1.5 million people using the app, more than half of which are under the age of 24.
