Police issue advice over popular app

Thu, 27 Feb 2020


The Island's police force are warning parents about a new app.

Concerns have been raised at the Houseparty app which is popular with young people.

The app allows friends to chat through text or video.

Officers say the app is secure as users can create “rooms” and pick only specific names of the people to talk with.

They warn though if a child doesn’t “lock” their chat room and choose private settings, others can pop into the video chat.
