So in that agreement, it was written that the company may save and use images anytime and anywhere in the world. In other worlds, it means that they have ownership rights of your images. The company is owned by a Russian developer named Peter Kostadinov.

Remember this is not a concern with this FaceApp application. This issue is almost with every other app. As we grant them access to our gallery. In fact, anything on the cloud is open to rain and drop anywhere. So when you put your file on cloud storage you can expect anything. Someday you can find your picture for face recognition under “Show your real”
