Party Guidelines

TL;DR

We want Houseparty to be a safe place. Help us help you. Respect everyone on Houseparty, don’t spam people, impersonate people or get naked. Don’t cause the ultimate party foul, because we will break up the party.

Party rules

We created the Community Guidelines so you can help us make this Houseparty a place where everyone feels safe and comfortable being themselves. By using Houseparty, you agree to these guidelines and our Terms of Service. Overstepping these boundaries might break up your party, and could result in you getting kicked out of Houseparty. Forever.

Bullying

Keep it friendly. Houseparty lets you hang out with your friends (and friends of friends) from all over the world. Be nice, and be inclusive.

Trolling and impersonation

Houseparty doesn’t tolerate users attempting to deliberately mislead others by using false names or usernames. You are awesome, just be you.

Threats

Predatory behavior, stalking, threats, harassment, intimidation, invading privacy, revealing other people’s personal information, and inciting others to commit violent acts or to violate the Terms of Use are taken very seriously. Threatening behavior has no place on Houseparty, and will result in getting kicked out of this party. For life. We report any sexually predatory behavior to the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children’s (NCMEC) CyberTipline.

Pornography & nudity

Houseparty prohibits users from distributing sexually explicit content or engaging in sexually explicit acts while on Houseparty. Any user reported for sexually explicit content will be asked to leave the party.

Respect fellow partygoers

We want to foster a positive, diverse community. It’s never OK to encourage violence or attack anyone based on their race, ethnicity, national origin, sex, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, religious affiliation, disabilities, or diseases. Serious threats of harm to public and personal safety aren’t allowed. This includes specific threats of physical harm as well as threats of theft, vandalism, and other financial harm. We carefully review reports of threats.

Help us keep the community strong:

If you see something that you think may violate our guidelines, please help us by using our reporting tool. If you see something, say something.

If you meet someone you don’t like, but doesn’t violate the Community Guidelines, you can un-friend or block the person with a simple tap. Haters be gone!

FYI, if you block someone else, they might know you blocked them. We may work with law enforcement, including when we believe that there’s risk of physical harm or threat to public safety.

Happy Partying,
The Houseparty Team
