Faceapp: Privacy Warning

The new trend in town is about an app that lets users transform themselves. The app uses artificial intelligence to change your photos – changing it so that users look young or older, or swapping their genders, for instance.

When users submit a photo to the app to change how it looks, it makes its way onto FaceApp’s servers. And it is not entirely clear what is happening when it does.

Some have also expressed concern about the fact that the app appears to have access to all of your photos when it lets you choose which you want to adjust. A very viral tweet claimed that as soon as users open the app, photos start being uploaded onto the internet.

we erg users to be extra careful.
