Pocketnow Daily: FaceApp could be STEALING your PHOTOS… (video)

Samsung Galaxy S10e on sale from $350 as Prime Day deals roll on (Reg. $750)

Deals. Prime Day is over but Best Buy currently has the Galaxy S10E for $400 off, you heard that right. The 128G variant is available for just $350 shipped, but you have to activate it on Verizon, AT&T or Sprint. You will be charged $40 for activation.

Instagram started testing how the market would behave when removing the option to see the amount of likes a post has to decrease social pressure. It started in Canada back in May and is now expanding to Australia, Brazil, Ireland, Italy, Japan, and New Zealand. They are also rolling out a warning when a comment may be harmful and ask if you want it deleted.

Story of the day:

Photo editor FaceApp goes viral again, prompting security concerns

We’ve all seen the Face App challenge at this point, what people might not know is that the app may not be safe. A Senate Leader has already asked the FTC and FBI to investigate the Russian app as you are giving them a picture of you, and you are also giving them access to your camera roll. Concerns include that the app may steal your camera roll or the images you upload and sell them as stock photos or be used for ads in Russia. So far, several researchers have looked into the matter but no evidence has been found on the company practicing this but it is very easy for them to do so… so beware. The company also claims they may store the picture you upload for about 48hrs but it is deleted after.
