FaceApp Got The Attention Of The FBI?

By  | 

It is all fun and laughs for us normal folks but it looks like FBI might not feel the same way about the new FaceApp.

We are sure you have seen your friends and family posting images of them looking younger or much older. Well, the new AR app called FaceApp has been getting a lot of attention on social media but some people are saying that there is more to the app than just having filters to change your appearance.

There were reports that claims that the app was accessing and uploading photos from their user’s phone without their permission. While that rumor has been shot down some people are still wary about the data that the app is collecting and what it might cause them in the future. In the privacy policy, it does sit that the developer will have the right to upload any of the photos that you process in the app which means they can do anything with the images.

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer has asked both the Federal Trade Commission and Federal Bureau of Investigation to look into the app but we will have to wait and see if they will investigate it or not.
