Part of the terms and agreement of the app stipulate to use the data obtained in a manner they ‘feel like’ rising concerns over people’s security.

“You grant FaceApp a perpetual, irrevocable, nonexclusive, royalty-free, worldwide, fully-paid, transferable sub-licensable license to use, reproduce, modify, adapt, publish, translate, create derivative works from, distribute, publicly perform and display your user content in all media formats..” reads part of the agreement.

“FaceApp” which has recently gone viral for its age filter, now owns access to more than 150 million people’s faces and names. According to their user agreement, the company owns a never-ending, irrevocable royalty-free license to do almost anything they wish with them.” Said Uber Facts.

One of the issues posed by using the app it’s that one’s photo can be tracked to know the user’s location.

In addition to that, the photo will be visible to the public prompting US senators to call for an immediate investigation by the FBI.
