It`s unlikely that FaceApp can actually use user content in a harmful way, and these kinds of terms have also been seen in other social media apps, but for those who want to take their privacy seriously and not leave a digital footprint, these terms should be reason enough to stay away from FaceApp (and other similar apps). The popular app has removed social media feeds with users posting edited photos of themselves what they might look like in the future. Search for “FaceApp” and you are faced with a real flood of coins that cover *this” clause of the user agreement. It also claims that no user data is “transferred to Russia”, even though its R&D team is established there. The proposal is therefore that cloud storage and processing be carried out with infrastructures outside Russia. (We asked to confirm where this was happening. Update: Founder Yaroslav Goncharov told us he uses AWS and Google Cloud.) What are the possible consequences? As Forbes reports, the most likely app your face could be directed to is the training of an AI facial recognition algorithm (remember, faceApp is supported by AI). However, to use the service, there is a catch in the user agreement. Users must agree to give FaceApp the rights to use, modify, adapt and/or publish their image and/or display at any time. Users are not entitled to compensation. The agreement is endless. 3.
