    Yes, they shouldn't use FaceApp. They run the risk of looking like an average republican

    Has anyone run Bernie Sanders, Biden or trump through the age filter on faceapp? Is it a skeleton?

    Owned and operated by a Russian. Development headquarters are St Petersburg.

    One of the security prompts for the app asks for permission to all photos on your device.

    now, could be completely benign. But given Russia's recent cyberwarfare and espionage history, it may not be a risk many are willing to take. Especially since these are politicians who may be unwittingly giving access to photos on their devices that should probably not be publicly released

    Though... if politicians have incriminating photos on their own devices, maybe we all want to see what's on those phones lol

    I’m assuming YouTube will delete any video discussing this topic, correct? Since they recently took such a hardline stance on conspiracy videos.

    I did that too. Bernie Sanders looks about the same (did him also).

    It's not outside the possibility of the company being asked by Russian authorities to hand over data. Even Google's ML library that was publicized can be programmed into a facial recognition system.

    e.g. Feed photos of someone and the algo will find the face in a sea of hundreds.

    Never liked any app that requires permissions to all your pictures on your device. This is why one needs a couple of smartphones. The non important stuff goes on the dummy smartphone with nothing in it
