Listen: Larry Maggot, Russia, Facebook discussed on Tech Reports by Larry Magid
"As promised we're GONNA talk technology with K._C._B._S. tech expert Larry Maggot security researchers say hot APP that is making the rounds today may not be as much of a privacy concern as some fear. It's called face APP Larry and it makes you a little older and a little. It'll younger right. Look at least look that way. You know it's a fun idea for an APP. I haven't tried it but I've seen other age progression APPs and or also scary. I'm not sure I know what I want to know what I looked like ten years from now but the problem is that they've been rumor online online that it takes all of your files all of your photo screen shots and send them to Russia because the company is based in Russia but a security researcher verified it only send the picture that you select it doesn't tell you to do that. It does that and it should good but logically it has defended the cloud or it couldn't do the processing now. The APP does have privacy issues like all apps like many APPs. I should say they can target adds to you and they do have that picture of you but apparently it is not stealing all of your photo so some of this concern turns out to be unwarranted and I suppose there is concern for the reason for concern in general in as I recall it was a facebook APP that led to so many people giving up their identity in previous concerns. There are other APPs that in fact do steal a lot of your information and I think the fact that the Russian company has given some concern but again according to independent security company and they could be wrong but assuming that they're right.."
