The AI is scaringly good and the fact that it shows you how you’d look when you become old is quite a trip.

If you don’t know about Face App, you can find it on the PlayStore and the App Store as a free download. You can either upload a photo of yourself or take a photo of yourself which it then uploads and applies the AI magic when you tap the ‘old’ filter.

The problem comes from FaceApp’s terms and conditions and under the ‘User Content’ section, this is what it says:

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 and any name, username or likeness provided in connection with your User Content in all media formats and channels now known or later developed, without compensation to you. When you post or otherwise share User Content on or through our Services, you understand that your User Content and any associated information (such as your [username], location or profile photo) will be visible to the public.

This means that if you use the app, you give them a rights free licence to use your photos with terms stipulated in the document and you won’t be paid for it.

There is more stipulations from the document. “User Content removed from the Services may continue to be stored by FaceApp, including, without limitation, in order to comply with certain legal obligations.” These are the kind of stipulations that make people feel uneasy while using the app.

Well now you know what you’re getting into while you use the app.
