Some Downside To The FaceApp
The App is racist as it lightens dark-skinned Africans to look more European. I checked this over a few photos on Facebook of my friends I know and they indeed looked European
According to some users the app would be nicer if the AI could differentiate between teens and adult faces when using the aging feature and age them accordingly. This means the current app result is a closer estimate.
Be careful with Apps that have access to your camera as data mining and listening in could be going on in the background
