FaceApp owns access to “millions of faces and names”


    Social media has been inundated with photos of older persons, thanks to a filter from FaceApp.

    This app has been giving people the power to change their facial expressions and looks for several years.

    However according to Forbes, people have also been giving FaceApp the power to use their pictures — and names — for any purpose it wishes, for as long as it wants.

    It says according to FaceApp’s terms of service, people still own their own “user content”.

    However, it also states that the company owns a never-ending and irrevocable royalty-free license to do anything they want with it.

    More than 100 million people have downloaded the app from Google Play.

    FaceApp is also now the top-ranked app on the iOS App Store in 121 countries.
