Is the ‘FaceApp Challenge’ Safe?

  • Published on Jul 17, 2019
  • FaceApp, which can generate altered images that make users look decades older, has become a national obsession. The Jonas Brothers, Carrie Underwood and Kevin Hart have all taken the so-called FaceApp Challenge, along with tens of millions of others worldwide. But cybersecurity experts say FaceApp’s terms of service are raising red flags. “We just don’t know enough about this organization,” says author David Fergusson about FaceApp’s Russian creators.

    Just incase you missed the Facebook terms of service, Here's a tiny part of it...
    "Specifically, when you share, post or upload content that is covered by intellectual property rights on or in connection with our Products, you grant us a non-exclusive, transferable, sub-licensable, royalty-free and worldwide licence to host, use, distribute, modify, run, copy, publicly perform or display, translate and create derivative works of your content (consistent with your privacy and applicationsettings). This means, for example, that if you share a photo on Facebook, you give us permission to store, copy and share it with others (again, consistent with your settings) such as service providers that support our service or other Facebook Products you use.This licence will end when your content is deleted from our systems"
    So what's the difference between FaceApp and Facebook?

    Something disturbing happened when I was using this app. I tried doing my nephews face (he’s a baby) and it was horrific.
    It was like, a messed up face, kind of tan, and it looked very disturbing. I deleted it instantly because it even scared me!
