Houseparty can be a lot of fun, but the amount of notifications is dizzying. To turn them off, tap the smiley face on the top left of the screen, then Manage Notifications. Disable "Send out my notifications when I open Houseparty" and Get My Friends notifications.
Then, tap the back button, and select the settings icon in the top left of the window. You'll want to turn on Private Mode -- it locks every room you join.
Recently, there were rumors swirling about an alleged security breach on the service. The app's maker, part of Epic Games, denied that any passwords were compromised. In any case, if you have Houseparty regret, scroll down and select the Privacy Menu. That's where you can delete your account.
