If you’ve been on the internet or any social media then you have seen everyone from your best friend to NBA superstars posting images from the app FaceApp. This is not the first time I have personally written about this app. I called the app a few years ago for whitewashing when you choose the “beauty” function. Now the app is trending for a less insidious reason. The FaceApp can transform your selfies with an aging filter. However, all is not what it seems. There are big privacy concerns. A developer by the name of Joshua Nozzi noticed FaceApp wouldn’t let him select any of the photos because he was offline.
BE CAREFUL WITH FACEAPP – the face aging fad app. It immediately uploads your photos without asking, whether you chose one or not.
As soon as I granted access to my photos it started listing them slowly a row at a time, almost like network delays. I quickly hit Airplane Mode and it instantly listed them all, refusing to let me select any because I’m offline. IT’S UPLOADING ALL YOUR PHOTOS.Joshua Nozzi
