Is Photo Lab safe?

A quick check on iOS reveals the company behind the app to be VicMan and on Android it’s Linerock Investments. Both these point to a website called Pho.to, which is supposed to have “10 years of experience” and “more than 160 million happy users all over the world”. A little bit of snooping around the web took us to vicman.net, which has a link to the website Pho.to. The couple of phone numbers on vicman.net point to Russia. But the authenticity of the website couldn’t be verified.

So far red flags haven’t been raised in way of privacy invasion. Having said that, one should think twice before allowing any app to take your pictures or have access to your gallery. Is the image being processed on your phone or on the company’s servers? If the image is being uploaded to the server, how long is it being kept? What about third-party access to your images? These are questions one must ask about all photo apps, not just this one.
