An app called FaceApp has gone viral, with many people using the app to age themselves.

More than 100 million people have downloaded the app so far, making it the top-ranked app in 121 countries.

The app uses artificial intelligence to transform users' uploaded photos into different ages and genders.

However, various privacy advocates have found the app’s privacy policy to be concerning.

Photos used in FaceApp are reportedly uploaded and processed in the cloud, granting the company a never-ending license to use them.

Via FaceApp Terms of Service When asked by ‘The Washington Post’ what this meant, FaceApp CEO Yaroslav Goncharov attempted to ease concerns.

Goncharov revealed that although the app is granted a “perpetual” license of photos, most are deleted from its servers after 48 hours.

He also said that FaceApp doesn't download a user’s entire camera roll, only the photos “selected by a user for editing.”
