Viral Face Ageing App Has Worrying Problem That Should Be A Concern To Everyone!

Viral Face Ageing App Has Worrying Problem That Should Be A Concern To Everyone!

There’s a new app that’s been doing the rounds lately and if I’m to be totally honest, I really don’t see the appeal of it. In stark contract to all the apps that make you look younger and flawless this one is an ageing app which adds years to your face. Like seriously, who even thought we wanted to see ourselves at 80 years old!

It’s taken off so much that celebrities have jumped on the bandwagon and have been sharing photos of their ageing faces. The Face App looks quite harmless as it invites users to “transform your face using Artificial Intelligence with just one tap!” “Add a beautiful smile,” it says. “Get younger or older.”

Looks like a fun and harmless app, right? Well, not exactly!

According to the terms and conditions users agree to when they purchase the app, they “grant Face App a perpetual, irrevocable, non-exclusive, royalty-free, worldwide” license to “use, reproduce, modify, adapt, publish, translate, create derivative works from, distribute and display your content”.

Lawyer Elizabeth Potts Weinstein has issued a warning to users with a screenshot of the terms with a warning.

“If you use Face App you are giving them a license to use your photos, your name, your username, and your likeness for any purpose including commercial purposes (like on a billboard or internet ad),” she wrote on Twitter. Her tweet has been retweeted almost 5000 times.

She also warned that the address for the business behind Face App is in Russia.

“It says that your data can be transferred to any location where they have a facility … which means Russia,” she wrote.

Others expressed specific concerns that Face App was able to access their photo libraries in the background.

That’s all the convincing we need to stay away from the FaceApp! That and the fact we don’t need to see what we’d look like at 80- am I right?
