Twitter is now flooded with old age pictures, and hopefully, it will continue for some more time as well. Though this is a fun and lighthearted challenge, it has a very dark side too. Very few people know that the usage of this app can have severe consequences. FaceApp was developed by a Russian company called Wireless Lab, which uses AI technology to apply filters to the photos.
But at the same time, it poses a threat to your private information. The app uses your personal information with other unidentified business organizations once you register yourself on this app. It retrieves your other pictures from phone gallery for unethical usage. Sounds fishy. Moreover, the app is not for free. You need to pay a specific amount on the third day of registration.
So if you wish to use this app, kindly use it wisely.
