These days on different social networking platforms flourishes the movement of correcting the image of my face in the old form via FaceApp application. It is worth mentioning here that with the users providing a large amount of information about their own faces, this application will stop at being a fun or secretly photo-editing application to steal information. user information.
The collection of user information is no longer too hot, but it has never been noticed. Especially after Facebook was officially investigated on this issue and broke many things about social networks in general today. Browser platforms like Chrome or anything else using Chromium core are also collecting special user information, Coc Coc.
Of course, by a reason or some word developers always insert that right in the legal texts that our users often never read but only accept. FaceApp is also the same, with the evaluation of the user's tastes, when installing this application, there will be regulations and access rights and of course for those who are anxious to try the very hot feature today. they never clicked and accepted it without reading it carefully.
Or more recently, the Facebook scandal with Cambridge Analytica. They create a viral application with a quiz called "This is your digital life". Hundreds of thousands or even millions of participants without even knowing they had "donated" their data to Cambridge Analytica, this third party had no responsibility for controlling user information like Facebook. The data includes call history, message content and even location data to advertise the US presidential election. Facebook is at risk of paying a $ 5 billion fine for this.
Back to FaceApp, the way this application collects user information is the same way that Cambridge Analytica does. The application itself was released in 2017 but after the new filter with extra algorithms or reduced facial wrinkles looks so real that the online community is racing to follow this movement. With the current digital age, what is the movement on the Internet, the more users and the more they collect. People who use social networking sites themselves are not afraid to expose their information online without thinking.
