Why You Should Stop Using The Phenomenal Meitu App
Are you an anime fan? Do you like glossy designs? Then chances are you may have heard about the new popular photo-editing app called Meitu. In fact, you have already installed it on your smartphone and you love every bit of it. However, there is something important you should know about this popular app.
What's The Catch?
Aside from the fact that it was developed in China which sparks paranoia from many users, many apps, especially the free ones, leverage that data collected from its users from financial gains. It is also reported that the Meitu app collects IMSI (International Mobile Subscriber Identity) which means it could effectively track all of your web-based activities.
But you don't really have to worry about this. Despite these alarming signs, there is no real danger in downloading and using the Meitu app. It is just that there are a few people out there that are sensitive when it comes to "user's privacy" and what to know exactly what they are handing over in exchange for using the new popular photo-editing app called Meitu.
About The Meitu App
Meitu is a Chinese app for iPhone and Android smartphones. It has been around since 2008, but after its latest update, it has become quite popular. The app itself enhances photos and makes the edited photo look like an anime character.
Given how anime is getting more and more popular these days, it was no surprise that the Meitu app has took over people's social media feeds even in the United States. In fact, it is also featured at the Apple Store as one of its trending apps.
How To Use It
On the Home Screen, you will find different options for editing your photos. You can also take a selfie by using "Camera" which lets the user apply various beauty filters that are somewhat similar to Instagram. There "various beauty filters" are Retouch (removes wrinkles and blemishes), Edit (crops, enhances, and add various stickers), and Hand-drawn (makes a picture anime-like with large eyes, a soft glow and a glittery background).
