Houseparty App

Dear Parents/Guardians of St Catherine’s Pupils,

We understand that in the current environment, many of us are using different ways to try and keep in touch with our friends and family. One app that has risen in popularity is Houseparty, which gained the no.1 spot on the app store after becoming one of the most downloaded apps since social isolation was introduced. Billed as a ‘face to face social network’ the platform launched in 2016 but isn’t as widely known as Facebook, WhatsApp or Snapchat.  

According to its Terms & Conditions, you should be at least 13 years old to use the Houseparty app. However there is no age verification on signup which makes it very easy for younger children to access it.

We feel it is important to share this guide for parents and carers to help them understand exactly what Houseparty is all about.
