Using FaceApp?
Thu, Jul 18 2019, 2:00 PM

The free Russia-based FaceApp has gone viral recently for its age-altering photo filter, as the number-one app in the Apple Store's "Photo & Video" apps section and with more than a million downloads from Google Play. But there is more to FaceApp than just a really cool filter. The terms and conditions of FaceApp, which no-one actually reads, allows it to access to use, modify, adapt and publish any images that a user offers up in exchange for its free artificial intelligence service.  This includes retaining the image after the user has deleted the app, not compensating users for the material, and even giving the app permission to access photos on Apple's iOS platform even if a user has set photo permissions to "never."


For its part, FaceApp stated it “might store” some uploaded photos in the cloud for “performance and traffic” reasons. It also said that while the app’s “core R&D team is located in Russia, the user data is not transferred to Russia”.


Ariel Hochstadt, security expert from vpnMentor blog and former Gmail marketing manager for Google told the Mail, that he always warns people about the dangers of downloading free apps that allow access to their private information. He pointed out that basically all free services and platforms work like this, and people are always giving away their information away. The takeaway? In the digital age, privacy no longer exists.
