Houseparty has become one of the most downloaded apps in several countries including the UK amid restrictions to stop the spread of coronavirus. It has been rumoured that several people over Twitter have posted screenshots that have claimed they were locked out of applications like Netflix, Spotify and even bank accounts after they downloaded Houseparty. Please be aware when downloading APPs and make sure they have strong passwords.
The company issued a statement denying those allegations.
“We’ve found no evidence to suggest a link between Houseparty and the compromises of other unrelated accounts,” a spokesperson for Epic Games said.
“As a general rule, we suggest all users choose strong passwords when creating online accounts on any platform.”
