  • 100M + download s till now, if something bad happens I think Indians will be the ones who would suffer😂 cause most of them were the Indian selfie lovers who downloads any app without a deep research on it.

  • What if an American made this app and not by a “Russian”? Are you going to scare everybody like this? Internet has all our information, it’s nothing new to us. Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, TH-vision, etc. have our information. What’s new then? It’s your prerogative to install it or to not install it.

  • Like google and Facebook are not selling our data to scammers and other advertising agencies. Last the the USA should talk about us integrity. I can list so many US companies that are scamming Americans with fees and high rates right now. US corporations feed off of American people And constantly milk them

  • I don't want to say you are very stupid but i am afraid it looks like you are, if you have been paid by i guess facebook and other American social media please tell us how much they paid you for this double and hypocrisy. To start with Faceapp only collect your picture and nothing more which is incomplete personal data, while Facebook and all the American social media collect full info in the name of registration and you are not worried, everyday we give up our data in so many ways online and offline, for example when looking for apartment you give your data to agents who will not give it to you back at the end yet is that is ok. If you are not working for anyone with a hidden motive then do the same video for Facebook, SnapChat, LinkedIn, Google and many more because all of them are worse when it comes to privacy and they has more pictures and complete data of people than Faceapp. simple this video is propaganda with a hidden motive. Facebook tracks my online activities all the time and show me adds based on the websites i am visiting without my approval yet that is cool because is not Russians. My friend i will advice you to go and look for work if you are jobless and stop this nonsense.

  • Where did people get this information, where’s the evidence that if Russia have your information, it’s gonna be bad. American corporations like Facebook Inc. have every last bit of your information and no one is worried. Is it because the Russians are the evil of the world are they? Why does everyone think that if it’s something linked with Russia it’s gonna be a hacker, it’s gonna be bad. Do ur own research first and find out that the FBI and American organisations have done way more terrible things (* cough * cough Vietnam war *cough). It’s getting out of control, Russia becoming like the Jews of the 20th century

  • Well, sending it to the Russian government is probably better than having Snapchat, Instagram, Facebook, and TH-vision post your info to the U.S. The Russians do not do nearly as screwed up things as Americans. **cough cough** CIA hypnosis experiments and Stanford Prison experiment.
