Developers of controversial ageing app 'FaceApp' admit it 'might store' uploaded photos

Security experts have said that the Russian owners of FaceApp don't have access to your camera roll but said the viral app 'might store' the image that you modified.

Cyber experts Checkpoint and various other research teams have ran a check on the app and said they couldn't find any evidence that it was stealing user data.
FaceApp also addressed the privacy concerns saying the main reason they store the uploaded photo in the cloud is for 'performance and traffic'.
In the statement, they said that while the app's 'core R&D team is located in Russia, the user data is not transferred to Russia'. 
Their statement comes after security fears were raised after some experts warned that it could access, store and use images from your gallery, without permission.
