#411: MD Teen Nominated For Emmy, FaceApp Gives Info To Russia & More!

Emmy Notes

  • Congratulations to Maryland teen Asante Blackk who picked up a Best Supporting Actor (in a TV, movie or limited series) Emmy nomination for his portrayal of Kevin Richardson in Netflix’s “When They See Us”
  • “When They See Us” is Ava Duvarney’s project on the Central Park 5, the teenagers who were wrongfully convicted of a sexual assault in New York City in 1989
  • On another note, Bruce Springsteen could become an EGOT winner at this year’s Emmy Awards
  • His Netflix special Springsteen on Broadway has been nominated for Outstanding Variety Special (Pre-Recorded), so if Springsteen wins the TV award, he can add it to a shelf that already includes an Oscar, a Tony and plenty of Grammys

FaceApp Gives All Your Info To Russia

  • The photo filter FaceApp which has gone viral for aging users has some people worried about privacy and security
  • The Russian-owned app has a very vague privacy policy, it mentions sharing with affiliates, and by using the app you give them access to your entire photo library, websites you’ve visited and some personal information
  • It’s also one of those apps that stays active in the background, so while you may not be actively using it, it’s using you
  • Basically you’re giving this app access to personal information, like your face, and with such a vague privacy policy, you don’t really know where your pictures are going or being used for, and what your personal info is being used for either
  • Experts are urging users to delete it
