And some believe FaceApp isn’t taking that responsibility seriously.Concerns have been raised about whether the application uploads users’ camera roll in the background (of which there is seemingly no evidence), and how it allows you to pick photos without allowing access.“We are receiving a lot of inquiries regarding our privacy policy and therefore, would like to provide a few points that explain the basics,” the Russian startup told TechCrunch.For starters, FaceApp performs “most” of its photo processing in the cloud (Amazon Web Services and Google Cloud, specifically), uploading only those pictures selected by a user.“We never transfer any other images from the phone to the cloud,” the statement said. “Most images are deleted from our servers within 48 hours from the upload date.”FaceApp also claims that no user data is “transferred to Russia,” where its core R&D team is located.“We don’t have access to any data that could identify a person [and] we don’t sell or share any user data with any third parties,” it added.But that’s not enough for some U.S. policymakers.Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) has asked the FBI and FTC to look into FaceApp’s data handling practices.“I have serious concerns regarding both the protection of the data that is being aggregated as well as whether users are aware of who may have access to it,” Schumer wrote in a letter to the government agencies.“In the age of facial recognition technology as both a surveillance and security use,” he continued, “it is essential that users have the information they need to ensure their personal and biometric data remains secure, including from hostile foreign nations.”More on Geek.com:Russia Fines Facebook $50 for Violating Data Privacy LawFacial Recognition Privacy Act Aims to Protect Your IDDNA Facial Prediction May Threaten Personal Privacy Appearance-altering platform FaceApp has, once again, come under fire—this time from privacy advocates.The AI-powered selfie editor from Russian company Wireless Lab uses neural network technology to generate highly realistic transformation of faces in photographs.Launched in early 2017, FaceApp almost immediately faced criticism over its “ethnicity filters” and, later, the “hot” transformation feature that reportedly lightened skin color.AdChoices广告Both options have since been removed.Curious about what you’d look like with a different hair or eye color?
