The app has become popular for group video-chatting with friends
App users have taken to social media to complain of being "hacked."
Several users claimed their Spotify and Snapchat accounts were hacked, and some even claimed their bank accounts had been hacked also.
The video-chatting app became hugely popular during the worldwide self-isolation.
In the app you can video chat multiple people at a time, and play games.
Here's what people have been saying on social:

BEWARE! I know I’m not the only one with this problem! A few of my friends have been hacked by @houseparty if you look at the twitter feed! They log into your Spotify from Russia. Get your bank details and can hack it. It’s very simple once you click agree to terms and conditions pic.twitter.com/kBKU7dMUyd
