faceapp privacy issue

Along with the emergence of #Agechallange, FaceApp’s old face application is back viral. In the midst of the application’s viral, privacy issues emerged about FaceApp.

Concerns about privacy issues arise because FaceApp uploads photos of users to the cloud, without clarifying processing not happening locally.

According to FaceApp, most of the processing is needed to power the beautifying or aging effects done in the cloud. The photos that are processed are also what the user chooses to edit.

The security test has not found proof of the application uploading the entire user camera roll. FaceApp may store photos selected by users to upload in the cloud in a short time.

The storage of photos in a short time is claimed for the sake of traffic and performance. For example, making sure users don’t upload the same photo repeatedly to make other edits.

FaceApp Privacy Issue

“Most of the images were deleted from our server within 48 hours of the date uploaded,” FaceApp was quoted as saying by Tech Crunch on Thursday (07/18/2019).

He also claimed, there were no data on users being transferred to Russia, even though their R & D team was based there. So, storage and processing are done using a cloud-based outside of Russia.

“We do not sell or share any user data with third parties,” he said.

Facebook also said users can also request their data be deleted. Even though FaceApp doesn’t have a more smooth way.
