Using FaceApp is not as safe as it seems


Is using FaceApp safe It seems not It could do what you want with our photos because by using the app we transfer the image rights

Viral phenomena always bring controversy , and the new filter everyone is using in FaceApp, which It makes you old, not exempt. In the case of this application, the fate of the photographs that are edited in it is being questioned, as well as the possible lack of privacy involved in using the app.

As several media have highlighted, FaceApp's terms of use are disrespectful of user privacy ; To which the Russian nationality of the company that is behind the development of this tool is also added.

Does using FaceApp put our privacy at risk?

Looking at the privacy policy of FaceApp, we can find that the last update is from January 2017. Since that time, the company behind the development of the app has not changed the privacy statement that attached it to the when it was released in the Play Store and App Store.

What puts all users using the app on alert is what it could do with the photos that are uploaded to the servers. According to what was found, once the user uses a filter to apply it to his photograph, he gives the license to the company. This means that the company that controls FaceApp can do what it sees fit with those images.

FaceApp does not ask for any kind of permission

While this It usually happens with this type of applications, it is very rare that FaceApp does not ask for permissions to access the device ID , as well as the phone number and other key data on Android. This can be verified by uninstalling and installing the app, since it only asks for permission to access the camera and the mobile reel.

If you see this you are concerned about your privacy, We don't blame you In short, this is what could happen with your data and photographs if you use FaceApp :

  • You will share your photos and usage data generated when using FaceApp with Wireless Lab. All this information is stored on the company's servers.
  • The information stored is on US servers, although this data can be moved to other countries with different laws.
  • The photos and modifications are yours, but you grant the service license to the service. This means that they can do whatever they want with these photos.
  • All data obtained by the service can be shared with other companies.

So, FaceApp is dangerous or not?

Maybe it is, maybe not, but what we do know for sure is that care must be taken with what is shared in it . Modifying a selfie does not have any risk, but if we touch up “delicate” photos (rises, there is a certain danger.

From here we recommend taking caution You never know when our face could appear in an Internet advertisement, something that nobody would surely like.

UPDATE : the company responds to the accusations

FaceApp has responded to all the commotion, and we summarize what they have said:

  • Most of the photos are deleted within 48 hours after uploading, they are only stored so they don't have to be loaded at all times.
  • FaceApp data is not transferred to Russia in No time.
  • They do not sell or share your data with third parties.
  • Most people use the app without registering, so they do not have any type of data about these people.

And also clarify that users can ask to delete the data of each one in Settings - Support - Report an Error. Write the word Privacidad and ready. It seems to us that really, if all this is true, our photos will be as safe or secure as on Facebook, WhatsApp and Instagram ...
