On Sept. 2, the sharing link of ZAO, a face-changing software popular in WeChat moments, was blocked, and the page showed security risks when WeChat visited the shared link. 

On the evening of Aug. 30, the face-changing app "ZAO- face-making" exploded in the form of brushing in the circle of friends, becoming the AI face-changing APP, that everyone competed to experience over the weekend. At the same time, it also aroused widespread concerns and doubts about the risk of personal information disclosure. 


Chinese Deepfake APP ZAO

On the afternoon of Aug. 31, ZAO modified the contents of its user agreement, adding a "special note" at the beginning of the user agreement, suspected of responding to online disputes. 

The new content promises that short videos and faces uploaded by users will remain on ZAO in strict accordance with relevant laws and regulations. ZAO will not use the above for any other form or purpose unless it is intended to improve the services of ZAO or otherwise obtain the consent of the user. 

In addition, ZAO officials said that users can withdraw or delete the content in accordance with ZAO's platform rules, and after the user withdraws or removes, ZAO will delete it on the server in accordance with relevant laws and regulations.
