Houseparty offers $1 million to find culprit behind 'smear campaign'

Mar 31, 2020 15:40 IST

After being accused of breaching user privacy and having been hacked, recently popular video conferencing app Houseparty has announced a $1 million bounty to find proof of a deliberate smear campaign, aimed at harming the app's rising success. While the app developers have repeatedly stated that all accounts are safe, many users have believed contrary reports and are encouraging others to delete the app from their devices. The app has seen a massive spike in downloads due to social distancing measures enforced worldwide amid the Covid-19 pandemic, with over 2 million downloads in last week alone.
