00:00
- So unless you've been living under a rock
00:02
for the last week, you have heard of FaceApp
00:05
or maybe you've seen these photos online
00:07
where somebody post a photo of themself
00:09
and then a photo of themself aged
00:12
like 20 or 30 or even more years into the future.
00:15
So I also was seeing these photos
00:18
and this sensation even hit the personal finance community
00:21
with Jeremy from Financial Education,
00:24
and Graham, as in Graham Stephan,
00:27
and after seeing these photos,
00:28
I said, you know what, that seems like a fun idea.
00:31
I wanna jump on this bandwagon as well.
00:34
So a friend of mine that I went to high school with
00:36
sent me a photo of someone
00:37
that we also went to high school
00:38
with who did this FaceApp as well and it was really funny,
00:42
so he sent me that photo,
00:44
and I said, what's the name of this app?
00:46
I gotta do this myself too,
00:48
but after I mentioned that to him
00:49
and asked him where to download the app,
00:51
he said, I have no idea,
00:53
but I'm not doing it because I don't
00:55
want to give my face to the Russians, all right?
00:57
So, having just finished up
00:59
the third season of Stranger Things,
01:01
I personally thought he was yanking my chain here,
01:04
but after doing a little bit of digging,
01:06
what he said was actually 100% factual,
01:10
and that is why I am personally not using FaceApp,
01:13
and I would not recommend it until
01:15
you understand what they're actually doing with the photos
01:19
that they're taking of you
01:20
and the hundreds of millions of other people out there.
01:23
So I came across this last night at about 11 p.m.
01:26
I set my alarm early this morning
01:28
to shoot this video for you guys,
01:30
so all that I ask in return is that you drop a like,
01:33
drop a thumbs-up on this video
01:35
for the social reporting
01:37
I'm doing here on this viable trend.
01:39
I would certainly appreciate that guys,
01:41
as it does help out with the algorithm
01:43
and it'll hopefully allow this video
01:45
to be shared with more people.
01:47
Now, when you download the app itself,
01:49
everything seems to be kosher.
01:51
You open up the app, you don't need even need
01:53
to create an account in order to use it,
01:55
and you just start taking pictures of yourself
01:57
or allowing the app to access your camera roll
02:00
and then you can modify those photos.
02:02
So what most people do,
02:04
which is what we all do when we download an app,
02:06
is we simply download the app,
02:08
we don't look at terms and conditions,
02:10
we blindly trust the developer
02:13
of this app to be using our data in a responsible way,
02:17
or if you're like me, this is a thought
02:19
that just never crosses your mind
02:21
of what are they actually doing with these photos?
02:24
But it's a question that really needs
02:26
to be asked in the case
02:27
of what's going on here with FaceApp,
02:30
and when you actually dive beneath the surface here and
02:32
look at the terms of service for FaceApp,
02:35
let's just say things start to get a little bit weird,
02:37
and it almost feels similar to a plot to Stranger Things,
02:41
which is just the weirdest part to me.
02:43
So according to the FaceApp terms of service,
02:46
which we are going to actually look at in a second here,
02:48
you still own the content, aka your face.
02:52
However, you gave FaceApp
02:54
a never-ending irrevocable royalty-free license
02:58
to essentially do whatever the hell
03:00
they want with that photo.
03:02
So do they want to take it
03:03
and turn it into a Russian advertisement
03:05
for a milk commercial?
03:07
They have the right to do that.
03:08
Essentially, they can do whatever the hell they want
03:10
with that photo without your permission
03:13
because they have essentially already gotten your permission
03:16
as a user of the app, and I know this sounds kinda wild
03:19
and far out there, so I wanna prove it to you guys.
03:22
I'm gonna open up the terms of service now
03:24
and show you exactly where it states this,
03:27
and I'm gonna link this up in the description as well,
03:29
just so you guys can check it out yourself
03:31
and understand what is going
03:33
on behind the scenes of this app.
03:35
All right, terms of service,
03:36
section five, paragraph number two.
03:39
You grant FaceApp a perpetual irrevocable nonexclusive
03:43
royalty-free worldwide fully paid
03:46
transferable sub-licensable license
03:48
to use, reproduce, modify,
03:50
adapt, publish, translate,
03:52
create derivative works from,
03:54
distribute, publicly perform
03:56
and display your User Content and any name,
03:59
user name, or likeness provided
04:01
in connection with your User Content in all media formats
04:05
and channels now known or later developed
04:09
without compensation to you.
04:11
When you post or otherwise share User Content on
04:14
or through our Services,
04:16
you understand that your User Content
04:18
and any associated information such as your username,
04:22
location, or profile photo will be visible to the public.
04:26
So essentially, you are surrendering your photos,
04:30
your name potentially, if you make an account,
04:33
and your location to a app developer based out of Russia.
04:37
Now, is that in and of itself reason for worry?
04:40
I'm gonna leave that one up to you.
04:42
It doesn't appear that they're doing anything malicious
04:45
with this data as of right now,
04:48
but what it is is what could potentially happen
04:50
with this data three years from now, or five years from now?
04:54
So if we were to sit here
04:55
and speculate as to what they're actually doing
04:58
with these images, multiple sources online,
05:01
I've been doing a lot of research on this,
05:02
have said, it is most likely being used
05:05
to train an artificial intelligence facial recognition bot.
05:10
But at the end of the day,
05:10
the issue that I have with all of this
05:12
is that they are essentially using a free app
05:15
and capitalizing on virality to basically take people's data
05:19
and harvest their data without them knowing it,
05:22
and it is very similar to something
05:24
that happened about two years ago called
05:26
the Cambridge Analytica scandal that also involved Facebook
05:30
and it was strikingly similar.
05:32
So with Cambridge Analytica,
05:34
this company released an app
05:36
on Facebook called This Is Your Digital Life,
05:39
and it was essentially a personality quiz,
05:41
seeming totally innocent on the surface.
05:44
But they ran ads and they got thousands
05:46
of people to take this personality quiz,
05:49
but essentially they took that data from that app,
05:51
got an idea of people's political beliefs
05:54
and used that data to run political advertisements.
05:57
So essentially, it's almost
05:59
like these apps are just a front for deeper operation here,
06:02
like we saw with Cambridge Analytica
06:04
and that may also be the case here with FaceApp.
06:07
And the real issue here is that according to Forbes,
06:09
FaceApp now has user data on over 150 million people
06:14
and not even 100,000 people
06:16
have probably watched this video,
06:17
not even 10,000, in most cases,
06:20
so most people will never even know
06:22
that their data has been compromised in this way,
06:26
and most people simply look at this app as a funny gimmick,
06:29
but in reality, it is a method
06:31
of harvesting data for who knows what the reason may be.
06:35
But anyways guys, I just wanted
06:37
to put this video out here to warn you about using FaceApp.
06:40
I want you to at least understand what
06:41
you are getting yourself into before
06:43
you simply download the app
06:45
like everybody has and start taking funny photos,
06:47
because it goes a lot deeper
06:49
than just making yourself look 20 or 30 years older.
06:53
If you have a friend or a family member using this app,
06:56
please share it with them just so they're aware
06:58
of what is going on as well
06:59
and help me spread the word about what
07:01
is going on here with FaceApp.
07:03
I've also linked up in the description below
07:06
some helpful articles I came across in my research
07:09
that may help you understand more about what is going on,
07:12
and more about the parent company that owns FaceApp.
07:15
But thank you guys so much for watching this video.
