The other concern that FaceApp is a Russian app and that it can be used to spy on users around the world, especially in the United States. The risk that, instead of uploading only a photo or a selfie, FaceApp may upload the entire photo gallery of your phone to its servers. According to a Guardian report, this is not true:
FaceApp CEO Yaroslav Goncharov said that only a single photo chosen by the user will be uploaded from a phone and that the app does not load a user's entire photo library, a claim supported by security researchers.
He said the data was never transferred to Russia and instead was stored on U.S.-controlled cloud computing services provided by Amazon and Google. "FaceApp does most of the photo processing in the cloud. We only upload a photo selected by a user for editing. We never transfer other images from phone to cloud ".
