Everyone has seen themselves and their friends how they will look when they will get old.

People have been giving FaceApp secret permission to use their photos any way they want. FaceApp has now the database of over 150 million people faces with their names. And it can be very dangerous for people in the near future.

We thought we should be more careful after Cambridge Analytics.

More than 100 million users have downloaded that FaceApp from Google Play. And it is now a Top-Ranked app on iOS app store in at least 121 countries.

While as per FaceApp’s ToS, the app owns a permanent royalty-free license to do anything they want.

It means your pictures are getting stored on the Amazon servers, Forbes has made it clear that the App developers can still use the pictures in any way they want. Peter Kostadinov from Phone Arena said it could be dangerous for people in the future.

Some faces might end up on a commercial somewhere in Moscow, because the AI is reading each and every expression off your face.

Sadly, this is out of your control. But what Digital Phablet has learned in the past few years from Facebook apps that they are harvesting the data but the data can be used in various ways. And the data is not always stored safely, privately and securely.

Once something a person uploads anything on the cloud via app or website, you losses control, as you are secretly giving the license to use it as most of us do not read terms and conditions. That is the reason why Apple is more focused on Privacy in its AI system.

And it is logical to get worried when an app wants so much access and license to your photos and identity.

Rob La Gesse, former Rackspace manager, said today;

To make FaceApp work, you have to give it each and every permission to use your photo gallery. It even gains access to Siri and searches. And it keeps running in the background even after your completely close it.

FaceApp can be highly dangerous for people in the near future as it has access to almost everything in our device.
