TikTok 'Guess your apparent age'

So, a friend of mine just posted a TikTok where she held her hair back and let her phone scan her face for ten seconds or so. It then 'guessed' her age as 14. That looks pretty suspicious to me; can this be used by bad actors to create DeepFakes? Or other biometric frauds?

isn't there already tons of ways to do this already? i would say just stop putting your face all over social media, especially if your underage, but people nowadays live online i guess.

Well, is she actually 14 ?

In any case, yes. It can be used for deepfakes. Especially if she recorded and posted that video online instead of just trying the filter. Any video that are uploaded can be used for that.

 

Tiktok officially says all that stuff happens on your device. Whether you want to believe that, that is a different story.

Do not use the Chinese malware. It's crazy kids are exposed to this, and yes 14 years old is still a kid.

Caroline doesn't need to hear all this, she's a highly trained professional.

Maybe your friend just looks young.

If someone were to deepfake your friend, they don't need scanned data or a 3D reconstruction of their face. It can be done with several regular photos.

More likely, deprived creeps will use Stable Diffusion to realistically remove clothing from your friend's pictures.

I what way did it look suspicious? 

 

It depends on what you are really asking. Are you asking if TikTok will use this to commit biometric fraud or create deepfakes? Or are you asking if someone else will do that? 

One very important thing you left out is whether or not your friend posted the "scan" to the public or not. 

 

I think what you are asking is, was there something special about the scan? The answer to that is no. It is just a picture/video that contains all the same data as some other picture or video. There is nothing special about the video taken with the "guess age" filter. 

 

If your friend posted the video to the public then yes, there is a very small risk that it can be used to create deepfakes and/or fraud. But the same can be said about any video or image. I want to stress that there is nothing special about the "guess age" filter video. It is just a video like any other. Maybe it is a bit easier to use the video with the filter because people give a clear look of their face, but that's it. 

 

If she has posted other videos of her online then those are an equal (very low) risk.
