Much of the world has retreated into coronavirus lockdown, causing many to forego their favourite social activities. Fortunately, the viral video chat app Houseparty is on hand to allow people to hang out with their friends and family. However, you may for whatever reason wish to delete a Houseparty contact – here is how.

How to Delete a House Party contact:

Houseparty automatically recognises contacts and friends who have already signed up.

This allows users to dive into chats almost instantly.

Those struggling to find their friends via the contact book, Facebook and Snapchat integrations, can also search for their friend’s username and add them that way.

In the same way, it is simple to remove individual contacts via the Settings function.

Tapping the smiley icon on the top-left opens your friends list in a new pop-up.

If you have any notifications, you will see a box with a number in it instead of a smiley.

Selecting the gear icon on the top-left will open the Settings menu.

Tapping the Privacy button listed next to a lock icon opens your privacy options.

Now tap Delete Account, found as last option on the Privacy menu and confirm your action in a pop-up window.
