Face App is back into the trends. Face App is the photo editor application powered by Artificial Intelligence and is available for both Android and iOS users. Currently, this application has 80 million active users. There is a high possibility that you might have seen the picture of your friends or batchmates with old age filters on it. The app is quite in trend among celebrities too. This application uses advanced software algorithms to transform selfies and make people virtually look older or younger than their actual age. It is a good application to use but everything that is good comes with a warning label. Right?

The Face App terms of use mention that if you are using this application, you are granting its developers the right to use your content, including your pictures, names, and voice for commercial function. It immediately uploads your photos and other personal information without asking, whether you chose one or not. It is all mentioned its TERMS OF USE Policy.

This is not the first time that the app is in controversy. In 2017, the app was in limelight and controversy for enabling users to change their identity. However, the developers removed the controversial racist filter that was designed to change the skin tone and facial features of the users to match a certain beauty standard.

Regarding the un-authentic uploads, it is my personal suggestion that one should avoid using the Face application unless you are comfortable with its terms as well as privacy policy, after all, who is not concerned about their privacy.
