Houseparty is one of the most popular video calling apps out there. Today we will show you how to lock a room so that no user can enter it.
Video calls are a method of communication that is increasingly used. Therefore, it is possible that on some other occasion we have decided to try the Houseparty platform. At Houseparty, by itself the rooms where we meet face to face with our family and friends are usually open.
Open rooms allow entry to any user that we have added as a friend within the application, both us and any of the members video call, you can join.
Therefore, it is convenient to know how to block the room so as not to have any type of problem and be able to hold conversations in a Totally private.
To block the room, we must follow the following steps:
- It should be noted that the room can be blocked both when we are in the middle of a video call and before making it. The process is the same in both cases.
- Once we are inside the application, at the bottom, some options appear.
- Click on the unlocked padlock icon.
- Next, we would be shown that closed padlock through which the room has been automatically blocked.
As we can see, preventing strangers from entering our video call is simple. If by any chance we want to unlock the room, all we have to do is press the closed padlock again. The padlock will only appear if we are the hosts of the room.
Although it's a simple process, many users have been surprised that some users “sneak” into their conversations without even have been invited. Let's remember that Houseparty has multiple suspicions about an alleged hack that would have affected a multitude of Spotify and Netflix accounts.
Locking the room is an option that we usually recommend always doing, because it is so simple that we can unlock it at any time.
