The app has gone viral with regular people and celebrities alike posting pictures of their future older, wrinklier, selves online.
As with most internet-based success stories nowadays, it all started with a hashtag.
FaceApp came to light in 2018 when it offered a fun gender swap feature, now, it's giving you a glimpse of what you'll look like as a grandmother or grandfather.
The new online challenge, known as #AgeChallenge, is basically the opposite of Snapchat's filter-based "baby trend" from a few months ago. All you have to do is download the app, and your photo will then go through a filter and display your much older looking self.
This has caught on quickly with celebrities and famous athletes who have been posting on the hashtag challenge like there's no tomorrow. Of course, for those with a curious mindset, they've gone ahead and posted images of some celebrities and athletes who haven't yet done it themselves.
Most results are being posted on Twitter, some of which have been dramatic and most hiliarious.
All you have to do is download the FaceApp from your iTunes App Store, you can use it for free for three days.
More on the subject, informed by people who’ve researched. Mybwuestion: WHY does it need full photos access? Why does it do any processing at all on images not selected (it must do or the image list would populate immediately as does the picker panel)?https://t.co/Ijt92eFdzC— Joshua Nozzi ????? ⚣ (@JoshuaNozzi) July 17, 2019
Just make sure to not allow it to access your images when you're setting it up and you should be good to go, privacy-wise.

Advancing smart dust concepts is inhibited by a lack of equally small on-chip power sources that can function anytime and anywhere. Could this microbattery the size of a grain of salt be the solution?
