In April 2020, a class-action lawsuit
was filed against Life on Air and Epic Games for allegedly falsely representing that the social networking app Houseparty is “secure” and that there have been “no data breaches and no exposure of customer data or third-party accounts” when, according to plaintiffs, the app routinely discloses users’ personal information to third parties – including Facebook – without consent.

, Case No. 20-cv-742, S.D. Cal.)
