FaceApp responds to privacy concerns as senator asks FBI, FTC to investigate Russian app

The photo-editing app’s ability to realistically age people has seen its popularity surge, but privacy concerns over the Russian-developed program have resulted in calls for it to be investigated by the FBI and FTC.

Questions have been asked over whether the application, which has its headquarters in Saint Petersburg, Russia, is stating clearly that users’ photos are being uploaded to the cloud for processing, rather than it taking place on the device.
