House Party App information

I hope you are all safe and well. The Education Safeguarding Team have had numerous queries and safeguarding concerns raised about an APP called House Party in respect to live streaming.

The house party 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.

WYP advice

West Yorkshire Police have advised that a number of fake emails are circulating with a message similar to the below:

 

If your child’s school is closed and your child is entitled to free school meals; then to send your bank details to the school and they will help you with funding while schools are closed.

This is a not a LCC process so please do not disclose any personal bank details if requested by E mail.

Thanks
