The National Online Safety community have collaborated with gaming expert Mark Foster to talk about ‘FaceApp’, the trending app that uses AI to completely transform selfies.

The app requires users to upload images of an individual’s face to edit them using advanced filters to make the person look older, younger, appear with different hair colour etc. The app uses either the phone camera or photos uploaded from social media accounts to apply the filters and allows users share the altered photo. While this all sounds like innocent fun, there have been some valid concerns raised about the terms and conditions, and what the company that owns FaceApp is doing with all these selfies.
