Holy moly! It’s been a hoot seeing all your friends posting pics of what they would look like when they’re old thanks to that new app floating around! Here’s a question, though – when you downloaded FaceApp did you read the user agreement? By using the app, you give them “a perpetual, irrevocable…royalty-free…license to you use, adapt, publish, distribute your user content…in all media formats…when you post or otherwise share.”
In other words, whatever pics you run through the app, they get to keep. Forever. That sounds soothing, doesn’t it? Also, them owning your photos and processing them sing AI, who’s to say they don’t use that same AI to hack into your phone, or your credit card app? The extra cause for concern is also that the app comes from a company based in Russia. While the company says it’s not as bad as you think, it’s totally a good idea to delete that thing! You’ll find out how you look “old” in a few years.
