How to change your Houseparty password or reset it

Image Description

Houseparty is a social networking application that allows up to eight people to video chat in virtual rooms. You can easily switch between these virtual rooms, and there’s no limit to how many rooms you can be registered with. You receive a notification each time a friend opens the app (unless they disable this notification in the settings).

Houseparty is available as an app for Android and iOS, and there’s a Google Chrome extension. On Windows and Mac, you can go to app.houseparty.com to use Houseparty.

In our example, we’ll use the Houseparty website on a Windows computer to change our password, but the process is roughly the same on all platforms.

Houseparty doesn’t have a settings menu designated to changing your password, so if you want to update your password, you’ll need to follow the steps to reset it completely.

This begins by logging out of the app. Click on the Settings cogwheel in the menu to the left and scroll down to the bottom of the page. Select the Log out button beside the red X. You’ll be asked whether you’re sure you want to log out, so click on Yes.

Now you will be brought to the login page. Instead of entering your username and password, click on Forgot password?. Enter the email address that you used to register your Houseparty account and hit Reset Password. You’ll receive an email from Houseparty that includes an auto-generated link to change your password.

Click on the link in the password. Now, choose a new password for your Houseparty account. Remember that your password should be unique and difficult for anyone to guess. Don’t reuse the same password on multiple sites.

Once you’ve committed to a new password, type it again in the second form field and click Reset Password. Your Houseparty password has now been updated.

The process to reset your Houseparty password is almost identical to the process for changing it.

If you’ve forgotten your Houseparty password, click on Forgot Password on the login page. You’ll be asked for the email address you used to register your Houseparty account.

Enter your email to be sent a password reset link. Clicking on this link will bring you to the password reset page where you can enter a new password. Click on Reset Password to create a new password for your account.

  • iCloud's free tier hasn't improved since 2011 - 5GB just isn't enough anymore

    Apple's iCloud service passed its 10th birthday in 2021, and syncing photos and messages between my iPhone, iPad by now, makes me feel as if the service has been around as long as the original iPod.

    I remember when the iPhone 4S debuted with iOS 5 and iCloud in 2011, and being able to take a photo, then see it on my iPad 2 soon after felt like magic. You could argue that we've had the same method for email for years, as your messages have synced between your devices for much longer than Apple's service.

    But while we've seen huge advances in iPhones and iPads, even a chip transition of the Macs from Intel to Apple Silicon, iCloud's free tier has remained the same, offering just 5GB.

    When you consider iPhones that can record in full 4K video, with one minute taking up 440MB, you'll already be needing to pay for a higher tier of iCloud storage once you record for ten minutes. With this in mind, this is what I'd like to see for the free tier going forward.

    Match the tiers with iPad storage

    We need to look at how the paid tiers have changed over the years, while the 5GB free tier has remained the same. These three tiers arrived with iCloud in 2011:

    • 10GB
    • 20GB
    • 50GB

    2015 saw some changes to this:

    • 200GB
    • 1TB
    • 2TB

    In 2020, we saw the latest change to the tiers:

    • 50GB
    • 200GB
    • 2TB

    Across these changes, free with 5GB has remained the same. I've always been paying for the highest tier due to the number of photos and videos I both store and take on my devices, alongside keeping hundreds of files that were once on a OneDrive account, Microsoft's cloud storage service.

    While the jump between 200GB and 2TB is baffling to me in how far apart they are, it's something I've come to accept, and it's the 2TB tier that I'm paying for each month.

    But 5GB for a free tier is ridiculous in 2022. When I used to work at a phone store in a previous life, as soon as I discovered that there were so many photos that one customer had on their iPhone, I'd help set up an iCloud plan, mainly because they were adamant that they needed their photos to be on their new iPhone.

    Setting this up would mean that the photos would be stored in the cloud, and a weekly backup of their iPhone content would be possible without facing the 5GB wall.

    64GB free storage for all

    But it's time for a change. This is what I'd like to see in the future for all the tiers:

    • Free: 64GB
    • 500GB
    • 1TB
    • 2TB
    • 5TB

    The free tier should match the lowest amount of storage that's available on Apple's products - in this case it's the iPhone SE (2022) and the iPad Air (2022), both offering 64GB as an option.

    It's not great to see these as storage options in 2022 regardless, but increasing the free tier could help with this. Backups would be possible with these devices, and you could store a good amount of photos and videos.

    Our Deputy Phones Editor, Tom Bedford spoke to me about how he still constantly sees the 'iCloud storage is getting full' on the free tier he has with his iPad, and he's primarily a Windows and Android user.

    5GB in 2022 makes no sense anymore - let's see a tier that matches the lowest storage option on Apple's devices, to help remove any anxiety about needing to free up iCloud space to create a successful backup.

    And as a bonus, the paid tiers should see more choice - start at a tier for the users like me who have multiple Apple devices, to those who are content creators for the 5TB tier, who want to store hundreds of gigabytes on their iCloud Drive.

    In this scenario, everyone wins. Apple can afford to allow users on a free tier of 64GB storage, especially with its services growing in revenue every year. iCloud has become a useful service for many, but mainly on the paid tier, and that needs to change so that it can benefit all of its users.

  • One of the best Microsoft Teams features is finally available to all users

    Microsoft is preparing an update for collaboration platform Teams that will extend one of the most useful features to an additional group of users.

    As explained in a new entry in the company’s product roadmap, Microsoft is bringing the ability to blur the video background to customers running Teams on virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI).

    “Users on Teams on VDI on Azure Virtual Desktop/Windows 365 can blur their background in your video meeting and call,” the entry explains.

    The feature still appears to be under development, but should be made available to relevant Microsoft Teams users by the end of the month.

    Microsoft Teams backgrounds

    Since the transition to remote working, a number of video conferencing vendors have rolled out virtual background functionality, which allows users to obscure the room behind them with an overlay of their choice.

    A more subtle option is to blur the background, which has the dual effect of obscuring anything incriminating that might be laying around in someone’s bedroom or home office and focusing the attention on the person’s face.

    Although Microsoft Teams has offered such a feature for a while now, it has traditionally been available to users of its desktop and mobile clients only.

    After bringing background effects to the web client last month, Microsoft is now completing the set by extending the feature to those running Teams on Azure Virtual Desktop or Windows 365. The broad objective is to ensure the meeting experience is consistent for all Microsoft Teams users, no matter which client or hardware they are using the dial in.

    Beyond the virtual backgrounds feature, Microsoft has made a number of recent additions to Teams with this goal in mind, including the ability to control calls using Bluetooth devices, combine work and business accounts and access screen-sharing controls across all clients.
