Like us, celebrities are obsessed with FaceApp.
The app first went viral in 2017 for its controversial “digital blackface” filter. Now it’s seeing a resurgence in popularity because of its aging filter.
Amid widespread concerns over users’ privacy, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer called on the FBI and FTC to investigate FaceApp’s use of photos. Schumer said the app’s headquarters in Russia raises concerns over whether foreign governments can access U.S. citizen’s data.
In a statement, FaceApp denied sharing users’ data with third parties.
