Coronavirus - Important Information And resources

Useful Links

March 31st 2020. Important Information re the House Party app and online safety.

The House Party app is taking social media by storm. It’s from the same company that created Fortnite. Over the last 48 hours there has been lots of misinformation over social media about it.  As with all live-streaming platforms, screenshots, unsolicited messages and self-generated sexualised imagery can put young people at risk.

 Links to ‘rooms’ can also be shared publicly – to other platforms which could see uninvited users joining.

‘Rooms’ should be locked to prevent uninvited guests from joining – remember all rooms will lock by default if a user enables ‘private mode’.

If an uninvited guest joins a room they can easily ‘friend’ others taking part in the live stream.

It appears that when a friend is invited, their friends can also join a ‘room’ without the invitation. Therefore potentially increase the opportunity to cyber-bully and troll others.
