    My friendface is full of people making themselves look old.

    They're using FaceApp, it does a pretty cool job, the older pictures look really life like and realistic.... I've no idea how accurate they are, I guess I'd need to wait 20-30 years....

    but it's been developed by Russians.

    American politicians have been advised not to use it.

    So if it is up to no good, what are the Reds going to do with my facial data?

    build a copy of my face to unlock my iphone?

    If it makes a 3d map then it could be used to break facial recognition locks, be pretty complicated to do at the moment.

    given that facial recognition is one of the more popular identifying softwares coming into usage, it's not beyond the realms of possibility that everything will use it for security - your phone, your computer, your office, your car, your house....

    It seems that in the small print you are giving the developers all rights to your image for whatever use they deem fit.

    All the processing happens on their servers, rather than the phone, so they could keep your picture forever, I guess if anyone famous uses it then the developer could sell that picture to the rags for a few quid?

    Or sell it to advertisers for use on promotional material.

    Do you want to be the poster boy for Senocot?

    It was a Russian who got me the full AutoCad 2015 for my pc.

    I know a few Russians now - as well as coming on holiday here a few are coming to stay. They are not all bad or all trying to take over the world.

    Many people trust Kaspersky for their "antivirus, internet security, password management, endpoint security, and other cybersecurity products and services". https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kaspersky_Lab

    Should we tell them it's Russian? Maybe they don't know.

    I think it could be a really useful app in some areas. They can take picture of their child and use the app to work out who the father is.

    Doesn't Facebook have standard T&C's so users (despite owning copyright) give over usage permission for their images?

    It's nothing to do with Facebook. That's just where people tend to post their pictures after creating them with the smartphone app 'FaceApp'.
