Keepnet Labs experts gave the following recommendations to Clubhouse users to stay safe.
- Note that no social networks, including Clubhouse, are safe for sharing your sensitive information.
- The application asks you to share your address book after signing up. However, Clubhouse is currently only compliant with the data privacy regulation CCPA in the USA and not with the GDPR in Europe or the KVKK in our country.
- To avoid hate speech or cyberbullying due to lack of moderation, only join rooms you know and trust.
- You can block the speakers that bother you.
- Be wary of people using a nickname instead of their real name.
- Keep in mind that even though the conversations are inaccessible to users when rooms are over, these conversations can be recorded simultaneously or transferred to another social network.
- A system bug that has already been discovered allows users to join rooms without being seen, listen to and record what was spoken. Although Clubhouse announces that they are working on this error, never get virtual confidence and stay cautious.
- Observe the social network's 18 and over age limit. Do not allow children and teens under this age to use the social network to avoid exposure to objectionable content.
- Note that the Clubhouse may have to share data with legal authorities in certain situations and can determine your location via your IP address.
- Although Clubhouse does not sell your personal data, it can use it to improve its services and share it with business partners. For this reason, consider carefully which data you will keep in the system.
