You are aware that a large number of celebrities, recently downloaded FaceApp to predict what you’ll look like in old age, you may be unsettled to learn what you agreed to in the app’s terms and conditions.
After the app went viral this week, some noticed the legal document is worryingly vague. It gives the app permission to use your likeness, name and username, for any purpose, without your consent, forever, even if you delete it.
According to Elizabeth Potts Weinstein
@ElizabethPW she said
“If you use #FaceApp you are giving them a license to use your photos, your name, your username, and your likeness for any purpose including commercial purposes (like on a billboard or internet ad) — read their Terms before your download it on your phone.
This is the second time FaceApp has gone viral. Its first brush with fame, back in 2017, was boosted by outrage over filters that changed your ethnicity.
@ScottWamplerBMD share the purpose
“I’m glad y’all are having fun with that face-aging app but I will never be able to shake the feeling that alllllll those pics are being put straight into some kind of database, the sinister purpose of which won’t be revealed until it’s too late.”
