Poland, Lithuania probe Russian-made app behind viral old age selfies

Poland and Lithuania said Thursday they were looking into the potential security risks of using a Russian-made face-editing app that has triggered a viral social media trend where users post “aged” selfies.

Poland’s digital affairs ministry said it was “analysing” the security risks posed by FaceApp to the personal data of its users, despite assurances by its designers that the app is safe.

“For several days in Poland and the world over, social media have been flooded by a wave of modified photos of ‘ageing’ users,” Poland’s digital affairs ministry noted.

“Various experts point to possible risks related to inadequate protection of users’ privacy,” it said in a statement on its website.
