To find friends on Houseparty and to verify that you are a real person, you are asked to provide your phone number. Once you provide your phone number, the app can be granted access to your phone contacts to find friends. There is also an option to locate friends through Snapchat and Facebook. So, once you grant access to the app, anyone who is connected with your child through contacts in the phone or across other social media platforms will be able to contact them through Houseparty.
