Face Swap Live
Face Swap Live is a camera app where users can switch their face with friends, family, celebrities and even animals in real time. The app uses facial recognition algorithms to capture the detail of the user's face, and then superimposes these features onto another image of a face. Users can record videos of themselves "swapping faces".
Why is it a risk?
The App Store notes that this app may contain infrequent or mild levels of sexual content or nudity, and themes of horror or fear. This would typically be down to the manner in which users choose to interact on the app (for instance, users may search online for images with which to swap their face and may encounter inappropriate material). A further concern relates to the way that the app facilitates the sharing of media (users can upload their funny images to a public gallery or via social media). This app can be used safely, but parents should remind children about the consequences of oversharing their details, information or images online.
