Drake, Cardi B, Carrie Underwood. The list goes on and on. And it's not just celebrities. According to Forbes, the app already has over 150 million users.
But before you download the FaceApp, there are a few things that you should know.
According to dailymail.co.uk, FaceApp's terms and conditions gives the app and it's developers "access to use, modify, adapt and publish any images that you offer up."
In addition, you are allowing the app to "use your name, username 'or any likeness provided' in any media format without compensation and you won't have any ability to take it down or complain about it, reports claim."
Plus, The Independent notes that users also allow the app to "collect and store information from your phone and that it might be used for ads or other forms of marketing."
Daily Mail says that making all of this even more concerning is the fact that the company that owns FaceApp, Wireless Labs, is based in Russia, which is probably the reason that in just the last hour, CNN reported that the Democratic National Committee had warned presidential campaigns to not use the app.
