Warning about the FaceApp app for the iPhone

In case you didn’t hear there is a new iPhone app called FaceApp which allows it create a photo of what would you be like if you are older [I am guessing not many changes if you are quite old?].

But, according to the license agreement, by using the app, you give the developer full life-time rights to use the photos without your permission. It may also be able to post your photo to the internet including your user name and location) and could be visible for everyone to see.

FaceApp also collects information about browsing history and location.

The agreement claims “we will not rent or sell your information to third parties outside FaceApp” but will share information with “third-party advertising partners” to deliver targeted ads to users.

The same app was pulled in late 2017 because it allowed you to chance your race [i.e. black, Asian, Indian or white].

Note: There is a FaceApp for Androids but it seems to be different.
