FaceApp Gives Russians Access to Your Identity & Ownership of Your Photos

Face App is the latest mobile application that transforms people’s faces using Artificial Intelligence. This trend has set social media agog with people, world over, sharing pictures of their bodies transformed from youth into wrinkled frames. However, there are now reports that claim that the digital app created in 2017 at Wireless Lab in St. Petersburg Russia, gives the developers—and possibly even hackers—access to your personal information. The app’s terms and conditions allegedly include that they have the right to modify, reproduce, and publish the images you create through their app.

The New York Post reports that this means “They can also use your real name, your username or “any likeness provided” in any format without notifying, much less paying, you. They can retain that material as long as they want, even after you delete the app, and you won’t be able to stop them. Even those who set their Apple iOS photo permissions to “never,” as Tech Crunch points out, are not protected against the terms.”
