Issues using this app
For everything, there are different perspectives based on how an individual looks upon something. With positive aspects, there always lie some negative ones. Although they are not always necessarily true but still some of the issues related to FaceApp as reported are as under:
- Vagueness in language: Vagueness is an inescapable attribute of language. A few of the sentences in policy terms are not clear. There is a conflict between what these people claim and what the actual reality is. As they claim that privacy will be maintained even if the company is sold to someone else, but in reality, the real statement is different. The choices that individuals make that who can see their photos are not properly clarified. The photos once uploaded are not secure. Only a request can be made to the developer to delete the photos but nothing else can be done.
- Every photo is being stolen: this is the second issue regarding FaceApp. This might be true but not as it is stated. Every photo is stolen by them is a false statement with no reality behind.this is a claim by the users that even after denial to camera access the app still shows the photos that are in the gallery. According to the customer’s claim, it is because FaceApp steals every photo but in reality, after denial of access to camera roll, FaceApp gets the photo from other apps, it doesn’t steal the photos.
- Revoking image rights: Deleting an image from other apps is easy but not from FaceApp. As simply deleting a photo from Instagram deletes it permanently but not from FaceApp. For this, there is a need to send an email to the support team and then get it deleted by their help by sending a request in writing. It can’t be done from the app directly.
