This app charges $26/month and has thousands of reviews which are obviously fake, and yet App Store is turning a blind eye to this because Apple's happy to get their 30% cut of the profits.

The app claims to be "not intended for children under the age of 16" in its Privacy Policy, yet the App Store age shows age 4+.

The app pulls horoscope data from a site called "Russell's Live Psychics & Mediums" (screenshot below), and it's unclear if they're affiliated with this site. Given all the red flags here, it would be insane to trust an app like this with access to your camera and entire photo library.

Face Seer's Privacy Rating is D. We found 4 different third-party trackers in the Face Seer app, and there were 140 attempted tracking connections detected during our test.
