How to Request FaceApp to Wipe your data from its Servers

FaceApp is the talk of the town right now. FaceApp is a mobile application for iOS and Android developed by Russian company Wireless Lab which uses neural network technology to automatically generate highly realistic transformations of faces in photographs. The app can transform a face to make it smile, look younger, look older, or change gender. This app was developed by Wireless Lab. Operating system: iOS, Android

Recently, it was discovered that there are lot of privacy concerns guiding this app. The biggest of ’em all is that according to the app’s privacy policy, your photos and data can be use for commercial purposes.

In a recent clarification, FaceApp’s founder, Yaroslav Goncharov, said the company doesn’t share any data with any third parties. Goncharov also included that users can request to get their data erased from FaceApp’s servers.

How to request FaceApp to wipe/remove your data from its servers

Here’s how you can do it:

Open FaceApp on your phone.

Go to Settings > Support > Report a bug.

And report a bug with ‘Privacy’ as the subject line, and description to request the data removal.

The data removal might take some time as Goncharov said, “our support team is currently overloaded, but these requests have our priority.” He added that the team is working on a better interface to make this process easy.

Its highly recommend making a data removal request until clouds of doubt around the app clears up.
