YOU may have noticed people posting fancy avatar selfies on social media recently – as well as the odd celebrity.
It’s all thanks to the latest craze, Lensa AI, a new app that transforms your photos into a magical arty style.
But users have been warned to pay close attention to the terms and conditions as the app’s maker can “distribute” the end result.
In a lengthy document available online, developers Prisma Labs says it will only do so for the “purposes of operating or improving Lensa”.
The long line explains that by using the app the company can “reproduce”, “modify” y “distribute” your images “without any additional compensation to you”.
It’s actually quite common practice for similar services to state such lengthy conditions.
Cybersecurity expert Jake Moore, from ESET, dijo al Correo en línea: “By using Lensa you will be granting permission to own the generated photo which will be placed in a database along with potentially other identifiable information.
“Lensa also appear to have users agree for their generated pictures to be shared with third parties which often people do not realise to be a problem.
“Cybercriminals actively seek to locate such information for illicit use.

‘These databases hold valuable information which can potentially to be used alongside facial recognition technology raising concerns with data theft.”
“The user’s photos are deleted from our servers as soon as the avatars are generated,” él dijo.
“The servers are located in the US.”
