Recent reports has shown that TikTok’s parent company ByteDance has developed a deepfake technology which they integrated into their app.
The new feature scans your face and then swaps it with someone else’s face in a video. The code for this feature which is referred to as “face swap” was not only found in TikTok but also in Douyin
, another app similar to TikTok.
This deepfake technology as we all know can be used for a lot of malicious purposes and integrating it into an app like TikTok which has been under fire by legislators might just not be the best idea right now.
