FaceApp privacy

Finally putting the words of former Rackspace manager Rob La Gesse:

To make FaceApp actually work, you have to give it permissions to access your photos – ALL of them. But it also gains access to Siri and Search …. Oh, and it has access to refreshing in the background – so even when you are not using it, it is using you.

That goes to say how dangerous using this app might be.

However, FaceApp responded to these reports and released a statement.
