“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.
