Joining the bandwagon? ‘FaceApp’ may access your entire camera roll

It was in 2017 when the FaceApp first made its online presence felt transforming faces or images of people to be older, younger, a female or a male.

The app made a comeback when celebrities started to post the versions of their FaceApp photos.

Hollywood A-listers like Jonas Brothers, Drake and Dwayne Wade joined the trend and a lot of people redownloaded the app again.

The FaceApp tops the list of most downloaded application in App Store.

Experts raised concern about the app’s possible access to the entire photos in a smartphone’s camera roll and the company is currently based in Russia.

“Most images are deleted from our servers within 48 hours from the upload date,” the company said in a statement to TechCrunch addressing the privacy concerns.

Concerns were also raised in the app’s term of agreements.

“Grant FaceApp a perpetual, irrevocable, nonexclusive, royalty-free, worldwide, fully-paid, transferable sub-licensable license to use, reproduce, modify, adapt, publish, translate, create derivative works from, distribute, publicly perform and display your User Content and any name, username or likeness provided in connection with your User Content in all media formats and channels now known or later developed, without compensation to you,” the app said.

This means that FaceApp can do whatever it wants to your favorite photo or even a selfie.

“If you share a photo on Facebook, you give us permission to store, copy, and share it with others,” Facebook said in its terms and agreements.

Facebook was in hot waters last year after privacy concerns were raised when the company provided information to Cambridge Analytica.
