FaceApp from Russia, due to its age-changing photo processing function, its use has increased in a viral way, but its privacy policy has raised privacy concerns for users. But it has also been pointed out that FaceApp's privacy terms and conditions are similar to other widely used applications.

FaceApp is popular because it allows users to digitally change their age and change their facial photos from young to old. Even some celebrities joined in, uploading photos of them when they were young, now or in old age. More than 1 million users downloaded the app from Google Play, and FaceApp is now the No. 1 app in the "Photo and Video" app section of the Apple Store. 

FaceApp Privacy Policy

Elizabeth Potts Weinstein, a small business lawyer who posted the "user content" section of the FaceApp clause on Twitter, said: "if you use FaceApp, you give them permission to use your photo, your name, your user name and your portrait. It can be used for any purpose, including commercial purposes (such as billboards or Internet advertising). 

And FaceApp wrote in its privacy policy: "you grant FaceApp a permanent, irrevocable, non-exclusive, royalty-free, worldwide, fully paid, transferable sublicense. It can be used to use, copy, modify, adapt, publish, translate, publicly execute, and display your user content.

Snapchat Privacy Policy

French security researcher Elliot Alderson posted Snapchat's privacy terms and conditions on Twitter. 


The privacy policy of Snapchat say, "you also grant us a permanent license,Allows us to create derivative works, publicity, exhibitions, broadcasting, sublicensing, public performances and public display of public content in any form, in any media or in any form of distribution (now known or later developed). This means that if your name, portrait, or voice is published through a Snapchat application or a service on one of our business partners' platforms, you will not be entitled to any compensation from Snap, our subsidiaries, or business partners. "

These apps show how much information people have leaked on the Internet through the use of "free" services. 


According to the Daily Mail, business technology expert Steve Sammartino said: "your face is now a form of copyright and you need to be very careful to allow applications to access your biometric data."


"if you start using it without scruples, then in the future when we use our faces to access things, such as money and credit cards, all we do is give the keys to access to others," he said.
