Houseparty offers $1m reward for proof of sabotage
Houseparty offers a $1m reward to the first user who can provide proof of sabotage.
The owner of the popular group video chat and game app Houseparty is offering a $1M (£810,750) reward for evidence the company was the victim of a commercial distortion campaign.
The outbreak of COVID-19 has led to an increase in the use of social networking and streaming apps. As a result, YouTube and Netflix have had to take measures to moderate the effects of high traffic levels. 
Another app that has seen increased activity is the "Houseparty" - has been bought by Fortnite developer Epic Games, One of the most popular video chat and gaming apps. It has become one of the most downloaded apps in several countries including the United Kingdom.
According to Apptopia;
The latest downloads of the "Houseparty" app increased from an average of 130,000 a week mid-February to 2m a week in the middle of March.

Recently, a Twitter user by the name of Megan Cassidy urged people to delete the app claiming that it hacked into bank accounts and other services.
Despite, Online rumors alleged that downloading the app led to other services such as Netflix and Spotify being hacked.
The company claims there was "no evidence" to back up those claims.
Houseparty responded and tweeted which clarified users that;
"All Houseparty accounts are safe - the service is secure, has never been compromised, and doesn’t collect passwords for other sites."
Epic Games further tweeted that it is likely that it was the target of a commercial smearing campaign instead.
Further, the company is offering a $1M (£810,750) reward for the first person who provides evidence of the same.
Moreover, Houseparty does not access third-party apps like Netflix or Spotify, though it does ask for access to user's contacts and connections on Facebook and Snapchat.
Those tweets were followed up by calls to delete Houseparty, and by claims that Epic Games was preventing users from removing Houseparty from their phones. The company issued a statement denying those allegations.
A spokesperson for Epic Games said;
"We've found no evidence to suggest a link between Houseparty and the compromises of other unrelated accounts," 
"As a general rule, we suggest all users choose strong passwords when creating online accounts on any platform."
