Following the scandal concerning the vague explanation of the processing of FaceApp user data, many people wish to request the deletion of their data. We will show you how to do it in a few steps.
We are only talking about FaceApp: everyone wants to try their artificial intelligence technology to find out what it will look like when they are old. However, all of this fun eventually posed many privacy issues. Depending on what can be read on the application's website, the company may use users' photos and data for commercial purposes.
However, in a recent clarification, FaceApp founder Yaroslav Goncharov said the company does not share any data with third parties and added that users can always request removal from the servers at any time.
How to request deletion of data on FaceApp
Requesting the deletion of your data is very simple:
- Open the application on your smartphone;
- Go to Settings> Support> Report a bug:
- Select "Confidentiality" as the subject and request the deletion of your data in the description.
The deletion will not take effect immediately, but may take some time, especially since the FaceApp support team is currently overflowing with requests.
In addition to recommending that you request the deletion of the data, it would be reasonable to inquire before following the trends.
